URI AND ELLA (HBO Max, New!) - The streamer has landed the U.S. rights to Yoav Gross Productions' 11-episode Israeli series, billed as "an unconventional romantic comedy-drama about loss, madness, rich-people problems and the one form of love that is truly unconditional - the love between a father and his daughter." Shlomo Baraba (Uri) and Dina Senderson (Ella) play the title roles in the project, which also stars Pablo Rosenberg (Zuki), Liron Vaisman (Kineret), Gal Toren (Shmulik) and Abigail Kovari (Zohar). Senderson also created the series, due this spring, alongside Ofer Seker and Yuval Shafferman, who directed all 11 episodes. (Deadline.com)

YOUNG LORDS, THE (Apple TV+, New!) - Jaquén Castellanos is developing a limited series at the streaming service about the civil rights organization. Plan B and Carmelo Anthony are also among the executive producers. No other specifics were given.
