Rhea Srivastava -
The international rights for Israel-Iran espionage thriller 'Tehran' has been acquired by new streaming giant Apple TV+. 'Tehran' is co-created by Moshe Zonder, writer for the hit Netflix show 'Fauda'. The show is currently being broadcast by the channel Kan 11, but with Apple Tv+ involvement, the show will gain more exposure across the world.
The eight-part series features Israeli actress Niv Sultan as Tamar Rabinyan, a computer hacker-agent working for the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, on her very first mission in Tehran. She is given the responsibility to disable a nuclear reactor, which would determine the future of all humanity. When the mission fails, she goes rogue in the city which also happens to be her birthplace. Here, she falls in love with a pro-democracy activist and also discovers her connection to the city.
Tehran is produced by Donna Productions and Shula Spiegel Productions in association with Paper Plane Production, with Cineflix Rights and Cosmote TV. Alongside with Sultan, it also stars Shaun Toub (Iron Man) and Navid Nigehban (Homeland). The writing credits for Tehran belong to Moshe Zonder, who also wrote the hit show Fauda. Zonder serves as co-creator for the show with Dana Eden and Maor Kohn. The show is directed by Daniel Syrkin.
