HBO Acquires Adaptation Rights to Israeli Crime Drama The Naked Truth

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

Deadline|Hollywood is reporting that HBO has secured the rights to a US adaptation of the Israeli crime drama The Naked Truth. Clyde Phillips (Dexter) will write the screenplay and executive produce.

The Israeli version set is limited to two rooms within an unnamed east coast city police precinct, but the HBO version is expected to expand this somewhat, though keep all action indoors. The original storyline involves the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl -- a complex and highly discordant character, who kept a video diary and operated blogs under an assumed identity -- and the implications the case has on both the family and the officers investigating the crime.
