Jessica Steinberg covers the Sabra scene from south to north and back to the center.

Netflix has bought the rights to “Blackspace,” a new Israeli thriller set during a high school shooting.

The eight-part series follows a police investigation into a massacre of four students at an Israeli high school, carried out by masked killers. While the police at first suspect Palestinian workers present in the building, it becomes clear that the murderous act may have been carried out by students themselves.

Written by Anat Gafni and Sahar Shavit and directed by Ofir Lobel, “Blackspace” was produced by Chaim Sharir and Mosh Danon of Israel’s Drama Team, and Pascal Breton and Lionel Uzan of Federation Entertainment for Israeli channel Reshet 13.

“Blackspace” has also been sold to Germany’s RTL, NPO in the Netherlands and a streaming service in Latin America.
