LIMITED SERIES "OUR BOYS" DEBUTS AUGUST 12 ON HBO

The ten-part limited drama series OUR BOYS debuts with two episodes back-to-back MONDAY, AUG. 12 (9:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), followed by single episodes debuting subsequent Mondays, exclusively on HBO.

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 (Israel Security Agency) investigates the murder, while the parents of the slain teenager begin their long and anguished journey toward justice and consolation.

OUR BOYS, an HBO-Keshet Studios co-production, was filmed in Israel and is based on the true events which led to the outbreak of war in Gaza. The series follows the investigation of Mohammed Abu Khdeir's murder. It tells the story of all those involved, Jews and Arabs alike, whose lives were forever changed by these events.
