Many popular Israeli series have been adapted for American television like HOMELAND, HBO's IN TREATMENT and others. TEHRAN, an 8-episode series, was picked up by the streaming service for American audiences which is a first. The series is mostly subtitled but there's a significant amount of English spoken. It's an intense edge-of-your-seat thriller worth checking out. All 8 episodes are now live on AppleTV+.
