Fauda producer Faraway Road Productions has hired Armoza exec Salome Peillon as COO and Keshet Studios’ Adi Ezroni, as EVP of content.
Peillon, the former head of international sales at ITV-backed Armoza Formats will now oversee the studio’s global operations.
Ezroni, previously the co-head of features and VP of TV at Keshet Studios, will meanwhile lead creative development and production on film and TV projects.
The Israeli prodco, which has offices in Tel Aviv and Los Angeles, was acquired by Kevin Mayer’s Candle Media at the start of this year. These new hires come ahead of the launch of the fourth season of Faraway Road’s action-drama Fauda on Israel’s Yes TV, which will be followed by its global rollout on Netflix.
Faraway Road is helmed by co-CEOs Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff, and is also behind action thriller Hit & Run, which is also on Netflix.
“We are excited to add Salome and Adi to our team, to further drive our focus on creating premium content with global appeal, and as we work with our new partners at Candle Media to expand our capabilities,” commented Raz and Issacharoff.
