Prisoners are grinding about prison courtyards. Prisoners with bird tattoos in his hand are waiting in their cells. A guard told him to go to the complex.
In the complex, detainees were faced with other inmates and beat him in an inch of his life.
Three weeks earlier, we saw the man, Segev Azulay (Lior Raz) in Tel Aviv. Watching his wife, Danielle Wexler (Kaelen Ohm). Performing with the prestigious Bathsheva dance company Israel. Segev runs their own tour guide company. And Dani has been married for one year or more and is quite happy. Everything looks like it runs well in Segev’s life.
Dani is travelling back to US auditions for dance companies in New York. This is the journey that Segev doesn’t want him to take. Because if he gets the job, it’s likely he and Ella will stay in Tel Aviv. Dani got the text before he went to the airport, told him not to ignore anyone who sent it. He told the driver, Moshe’s family friend (Yoram Tollendano) waits. While he saw his friend Syd (Siena Kelly) and told him to give “him” a note.
Then he stopped at a cafe to get coffee for him and Moshe. On the way out, he ran by car, which then stopped then leaving the scene.
Segev got a call and rushed to the hospital, but Dani left.
He had to call Dani’s father, Martin (Gregg Henry). To solve tragic news, but the most challenging thing. He had to do was tell Ella. However, first, another family friend, Shapira Strap (Moran Rosenblatt), visited the hospital. He was a police detective, and Segev wanted him. To look into things because the police so far had no info. When he investigats, he finds that the car is owned by a local gang leader. Which he pursued on the streets of Tel Aviv.
When Segev went to take Ella and told him about Dani, he blinked again when they met; He toured with him, and they walked well, he went with him to take Ella.
When he got Dani’s phone back, he saw the text and missed a call from the same number. And when he answered one of the calls. He is surprised to find a man who called him with a full name. Humans are Assaf (Lior Ashkenazy), a married Mossad director who only found that Dani was dead through news reports. This then we find out during another flashback is that Dani and Assaf together when Dani meets Segev.
The idea of Hit & Run came from Raz and Avi Issacharoff (both created the Fauda), which is an executive manufacturer. Still, this show is run by American manufacturer Dawn Prestwich and Nicole Yorkin. Production includes Tel Aviv and New York and famous American actors like Henry and Sanaa Lathan. Playing a Meks Segev who helped him seek Dani’s killer, shown. It certainly makes a mixture of interesting. Producing thriller films that have a little different feeling. Than most of these types of performances in recent years.
Mike Barker, which directed the first episode, gave a slight feeling of Israel:
With zoom-in and some camera pots as rampaging voltages. And he made sure to show Tattoo Segev to give viewers the instructions. That he had a complicated past for a man who encouraged tourists around Israel to make a living. This is what makes things surprising but not surprising. When he found an intruder at his home after Shapira began investigating the accident. And in the subsequent struggle, he broke the man’s neck. The tour guide does not have such training in the toolbox.
This show has many actions, such as pursuit and car fighting, but also wise and intentional. It takes time for flashbacks and checking relationships between Segev and Dani. And checking not only emotional basics about what else happens without Segev knowledge. Such as the relationship with Asaaf.
Raz’s performance was challenging and confusing at once. And he was supported by Israeli veteran actors such as Rosenblatt and Ashkenazi. But he also played away from American and Canadian actors like Henry and Ohm. It helps that this is based on the idea of investigating his life in IDF. But Raz must have attracted more than just a decrease in the level of activity on a more dramatic scene.
The first episode prepared many engaging scenarios:
Is Dani an anonymous informant who accidentally fell in love with the handler? What happened to Segev? And why did he follow the footsteps of the instructions on Dani’s death in New York? The first episode regulates that many exciting questions are rare and make watching it easier to make.
Hit & Run boasts an excellent international cast, an exciting premise, and opens up many storylines without confusing viewers.
