‘Super-juicy’ TV show about Benjamin Netanyahu in the works

(JTA) –The British production company Fremantle is developing a show based on the political and personal life of Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving prime minister, Variety reported Oct. 30. It would be the first TV series about the embattled Likud politician, who is currently mired in multiple corruption scandals. The production is being done through Fremantle’s Israeli arm, Abot Hameiri, which bought the rights to a biography about Netanyahu written by Israeli journalist Ben Caspit. Guy Hameiri, the co-founder of Abot Hameiri, said the show will be “a super-juicy family melodrama that explores how the personal can become political, and vice versa.” He also described it as “an epic political story with a very big philosophical and psychological undertone,” according to Variety. Netanyahu, 70, has served as prime minister since 2009 as well as in 1996-99.
