The latest Israeli series to reach Netflix is “Blackspace,” a new thriller set in the aftermath of 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 terrorism, it begins to emerge that the murderous act may have been carried out by other students.
Actor and comedian Guri Alfi plays the chief police investigator, who suspects his answers may be found in Blackspace, the app used by students to communicate with one another, sharing their secrets away from their parents and teachers.
Written by Anat Gafni and Sahar Shavit and directed by Ofir Lobel, “Blackspace” was produced for Israel’s Channel 13. A second season is already in the works.
“Blackspace” has also been sold to Germany’s RTL, NPO in the Netherlands and a streaming service in Latin America.
