Much-anticipated Israeli spy thriller Tehran is released on Apple TV+
Tehran, co-created by Fauda writer Moshe Zonder, revolves around the story of Tamar Rabinyan, (played by Israeli actress Niv Sultan), who is a gifted young hacker for Israel’s intelligence unit.
She is drafted to join Mossad and sent on a perilous mission to Iran, where she is ordered to hack into an Iranian nuclear reactor.
When her ambitious mission fails, Rabinyan is stuck in the land of her childhood, where she discovers her roots and befriends local pro-democracy activists.
“Tehran aims to shed new light on the Israeli-Iranian conflict, and takes on universal struggles around immigration, identity and patriotism to examine whether it is possible to become free from these restraints,” Zonder told Deadline last year.
Apple TV+ reportedly bought the series for a multi-million dollar figure brokered by Cineflix Rights and Paper Plane Productions, along with the show’s producers, Dana Eden and Shula Spiegel.
- The first three episodes of Tehran premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday, with new episodes released weekly
