Co-creators Amit Cohen and Rohen Leshem said they felt fortunate to write about a world of fearless women who change history and to deal with enrapturing personal stories while exploring one of the most appalling, heartbreaking events in recent decades. Cohen and Leshem were previously famous for the psychological thriller “The Gordin Cell,” which was later remade by NBC as “Allegiance.”
“Fertile Crescent” is also counting Maria Feldman and Eitan Mansuri as co-creators. It was penned by Cohen and Leshem in association with Xabi Molina.
