Production and distribution edit
Hit & Run was written by Avi Issacharoff, Lior Raz, Dawn Prestwich, and Nicole Yorkin. Mike Barker directed the pilot and 3 other episodes; Neasa Hardiman and Rotem Shamir directed 3 and 2 episodes, respectively. This is the first Netflix original series from Israel. On 20 September 2021, Netflix canceled the series after one season.
Daniel Feinberg panned the show, writing for The Hollywood Reporter that any "momentum Hit & Run builds in the early episodes - and it builds a tremendous amount - basically dissipates due to increasingly dumb narrative developments." In the Decider, Joel Keller recommends the show saying the show "boasts a fine international cast, an interesting premise, and opens up a lot of story avenues without confusing the viewer".
