Rise And Kill First - Limited Series Based on Mossad’s Secret Assassination Missions in Development at HBO

EXCLUSIVE: Israeli producer Keshet International has teamed with HBO to option the bestselling Ronen Bergman book Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel’s Targeted Assassinations. The book is a definitive history of Israel’s covert targeted killing programs of Mossad, Shin Bet and the IDF that have been a staple of Israeli intelligence since the beginning of its statehood in 1948.

The initial intention is for Keshet and HBO to create and co-produce an English-language limited series that will be shot in Israel. The hope is for annual reprises that focus on different missions. The book’s title comes out of the Talmud: “If someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first.” That has been a cornerstone principle in protecting Israelis from terrorists, and much of that has come through targeted assassinations, many of them done pre-emptively to take out enemies and suicide bombers before they strike.

Death And Nightingales - Matthew Rhys, Jamie Dornan and Ann Skelly to Star in BBC Series

Made by Imaginarium Productions and Soho Moon, Jamie Dornan (The Fall, The Siege Of Jadotville) and Matthew Rhys (The Americans, The Post) will return to the BBC to lead the cast of Death And Nightingales, joined by Ann Skelly (Red Rock, Kissing Candice).

The three part drama is adapted and directed by Allan Cubitt (The Fall).

Based on Eugene McCabe’s modern Irish classic, Death And Nightingales is a riveting story of love, betrayal, deception and revenge, set in the beautiful haunting countryside of Fermanagh in 1885. A place where neighbours observe each other and inform, a world of spies, confessions and double dealing; where a pervading sense of beauty is shot through with menace and impending doom.

Set over a desperately tense 24- hour period, it’s Beth Winters’ (Ann Skelly) 25th birthday - the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Jamie Dornan) and escape from her limited life and difficult and complex relationship with her Protestant landowner stepfather Billy (Matthew Rhys). As decades of pain and betrayal finally build to a devastating climax, Death And Nightingales is a powerful and gripping drama that follows a woman struggling to control her own destiny and will illuminate tensions that tear both families and nations apart.

Matthew Rhys says: “I’ve been a huge fan of Allan Cubitt’s work for many years so I’m thrilled to have been given the chance to work on Death And Nightingales alongside Jamie and Ann and return to the BBC.”

Jamie Dornan says: “I’m thrilled to be reunited with Allan and his brilliant scripts to play such an intriguing character like Liam Ward and to return to Northern Ireland and BBC Two”.

Ann Skelly says: “Playing such a strong character as Beth Winters is truly an actor’s dream, and a fantastically intense challenge to be given the opportunity to play. And to get to work with such brilliant actors like Matthew and Jamie, and a director like Allan Cubitt, is just surreal to me. I can’t wait to start!”

Jonathan Cavendish, Producer, says: “We are thrilled to combine the wonderful talents of Matthew Rhys and Jamie Dornan with the remarkable new star in the making Ann Skelly”.

Tommy Bulfin, Executive Producer for BBC Two, says: "With the phenomenal Ann Skelly cast as Beth and with Jamie Dornan and Matthew Rhys returning to the BBC, to have a cast of this calibre on board for Death And Nightingales is incredibly exciting. I can’t wait to see them bring Allan’s brilliant scripts to life”.
