Yitzhak Rabin’s granddaughter brings Israeli TV show to the U.S.


Noa Rothman, the granddaughter of the late Yitzhak Rabin, has just signed a deal to produce an American version of her Israeli show “The Prime Minister’s Children,” The Times of Israel reports.

The series, which Rothman co-wrote, “focused on the public and private lives of a fictional Israeli prime minister, his wife and his two adolescent children,” according to The Times of Israel. “The US version will follow a similar model but instead peer into the private rooms of the White House, making the audience privy to the inner workings of an American president.”

Sounds good — and if it follows in the footsteps of fellow Israeli imports “In Treatment” and “Homeland,” it likely will be.
