Netflix 'Hit & Run': Release date, spoilers and all about the action thriller
'Hit & Run' is a 10-episode action thriller series that follows a tour guide as his world collapses after a tragic accident
Creators of the hit Israeli TV series 'Fauda' have joined forces to create what looks like another intriguing piece of entertainment. 'Hit & Run' is a 10-episode action thriller series that follows a tour guide as his world collapses the moment his wife passes away in a tragic car accident.
Netflix has been betting big on action thrillers lately. It would be safe to say that most have left a lasting impression. 'Black Summer', 'Warrior Nun', 'Jessica Jones' and 'Luke Cage' are some of the shows you can binge on the side.
'Hit & Run' premieres on August 6, Friday.
The official synopsis reads: "A man searching for the truth behind his wife's death becomes caught up in a dangerous web of secrets and intrigue stretching from New York to Tel Aviv."
"He’s been drawn into a situation he doesn’t want to be in. Everything from his past that he wanted to forget is coming back to him. He doesn't want to be a warrior. He does some terrible things but we hope the audience will understand why. At the end of the day he’s just trying to protect his family," actor-creator Lior Raz told Forbes.
While Raz stars as Segev Azulay, Kaelen Ohmas will play Danielle Wexler Azulai. Moran Rosenblatt (Tali Shapira), Gregg Henry (Martin Wexler), and Sanaa Lathan (Naomi Hicks) also appear in key roles.
The sneak peek has been received well by the viewers. The first trailer, which dropped on July 12, has clocked in over 5 million views and 200 + comments so far, of which most are positive.
"Looks dope, could have seen Liam Neeson being the main dude but I’ll see how this guy rolls," one wrote on YouTube, while another shared: "Hope it's not as intense as Fauda, I really liked it but." "ow it's going to be so good! Jason Statham would have been perfect for this role! Actually I thought the hit and run was something else until I watched the trailer."
'Hit & Run' is directed by Mike Barker, Neasa Hardiman, and Rotem Shamir with Agatha Warren as the producer.
