Israeli actor Lior Raz is in a new series from Netflix called “Hit and Run.” Raz is most famous for playing Israeli undercover anti-terrorist agent Doron Kavillio on the international hit Israeli TV show Fauda. The new show has just released its first trailer. The show comes out in August.
Israeli TV seems to be conquering the world. It started with remakes. America’s shows “In Treatment” and “Homeland” were both remakes of Israeli television programs. Then the original Israeli shows themselves took international viewers by storm. In addition to Fauda, the suspense drama about Israel’s counter-terrorist agents, shows like “Shtissel”, about a Hasidic family in Jerusalem, and :Srugim,” which is about young and single modern orthodox people living in Jerusalem, found popularity on streaming services like Netflix.
Hit and Run is written,created and executive produced by Fauda’s Avi Issacharoff and Lior Raz. In it Raz plays Segev Azulay, a man whose life is turned upside down when his wife is killed in a mysterious hit and run accident. The Affair’s Sanaa Lathan plays the female lead.
