If you enjoyed the hit Israeli series Fauda then the new Netflix series Hit and Run needs to be on your radar.

Hit and Run is the brainchild of Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff, the creative duo behind Fauda.

This time the action moves from Tel Aviv to New York. 

Most of the dialogue is in English.

As their first collaboration, there are so many plot twists and suspense, it is guaranteed you will be glued to your seat for the entire nine-episode first season. And there is no doubt that there will be a second season just judging by the last episode’s ending. 

Not Everything Is as It Seems

Raz and Issacharoff had based their international hit Fauda on their shared experiences in an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Mista’arvim unit. Mista’arvim units are specially trained and tasked with working undercover and assimilating in the Arab areas.

In Hit and Run, the creative pair take their experiences in a different direction. Raz plays Segev Azulai, a divorced father of an 11-year-old daughter Ella (Neta Orbach). He runs a tour guide service out of Tel Aviv and has remarried to an American dancer Danielle Azulai (Kaelen Ohm) who works for the prestigious Bat Sheva Dance Company.

Things go awry when Danielle leaves for a big audition in New York and is then killed in a hit-and-run auto accident. The car had been reported stolen from a Tel Aviv organized crime figure just prior to the accident. Yet, surveillance cameras in the area catch the two male drivers. And that’s when the story goes turns much more sinister.
