TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- A Hollywood producer has purchased the adaptation rights to the Israeli cable television series the "Prime Minister's Children," officials said.

Sarah Timberman of Timberman-Beverly Productions purchased the Israeli series produced by Koda Communications Monday, Haaretz reported.

The series is about the prime minister's family and the challenges faced as the first family. It was created by Shahar Magen and Noa Rotman, the granddaughter of the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

The television series will be adapted in America for CW, a network run as a joint venture by the CBS and Time Warner, the paper said.

The Israeli series "Head Injuries" was recently purchased for adaptation by Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer and is to be broadcast on Cinemax, the paper said.
