HBO Sets Premiere Date for Limited Series 'Our Boys' Created by Hagai Levi

HBO has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original limited series Our Boys created by Hagai Levi.

The 10-episode season will debut with back-to-back episodes on Monday, August 12 at 9/8c. The series will then air single episodes every subsequent Monday.

In the summer of 2014, three Jewish teenagers are kidnapped and murdered by Hamas militants. Israel is shocked, shaken and furious. Two days later, the burned body of a Palestinian teenager from eastern Jerusalem is found in a forest on the western outskirts of the city. In the ensuing days, an agent from the internal terror division of the Shin Bet investigates the murder, while the parents of the slain teenager begin their long and anguished journey toward justice and consolation.

Filmed in Israel, the drama is based on the true events which led to the outbreak of war in Gaza. The series follows the investigation of Muhammad Abu Khdeir's murder, and tells the story of all those involved, Jews and Arabs alike, whose lives were forever changed by these events.

Levi created the series with Joseph Cedar and Tawfik Abu-Wael. They executive produce with Avi Nir, Alon Shtruzman, Karni Ziv, Peter Traugott, Rachel Kaplan, Noah Stollman and Michael Lombardo. Keshet Studios and Movie Plus produce in association with HBO.
