Posted by Noa Tishby
In her homeland of Israel, Noa Tishby’s name is synonymous with stardom. An actress and a producer, Tishby got her first big break at 16 playing the lead in the hit original musical KING DAVID, She got a full drama scholarship to the Tel Aviv National Museum of Arts and went on to play the lead in the nation’s highest rated prime time drama RAMAT AVIV. Tishby became a household name and appeared in numerous TV shows, Musicals and films in Israel and the US. Some of her credits include THE ISLAND, THE GHOST OF GIRLFRIENS PAST, BIG LOVE, NCIS, LEVERAGE, CSI, NIP/TUCK, and STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE.
As a producer, Tishby made history with the sale of the show “IN TREATMENT” to HBO as the first Israeli television show to become an American series. Tishby serves as co-executive producer alongside Mark Wahlberg. Gabriel Byrne and Dianne Weist star in this revolutionary Emmy, Golden Globe and Peabody Award winning drama. Ultimately, by selling “IN TREATMENT”, Tishby created an industry in America where one did not exist before: Israeli entertainment content in the US market. Tishby recently set up three additional television projects in the US: “SCREENZ” and “A TOUCH AWAY” for HBO and a comedy for MTV. Tishby’s company, “Noa’s Arc”, owns the rights and is developing numerous television, film and theater projects from Israel and the world.
Ms. Tishby also served in the Israeli army for two and a half years and she can, if need be, kick some serious butt - although she chooses to solve most of her conflicts in a peaceful manner these days. But I wouldn’t test her if I were you.
