Apple boards Israeli spy series

Tehran was largely filmed in Greece last year

US tech giant Apple has joined Israeli-produced espionage thriller Tehran as a coproducer, with its Apple TV+ service becoming the series’ exclusive global streaming home.

From Fauda writer Moshe Zonder, Tehran was originally commissioned by Israeli network Kan 11.

Apple has partnered with the show’s distributor, UK-based Cineflix Rights, to become its global streaming home and coproducer.

Tehran tells the story of a Mossad agent who goes undercover on a dangerous mission in Tehran that places her and everyone around her in jeopardy.

The series stars young Israeli actor Niv Sultan (Flawless, She Has It, Temporarily Dead) alongside Shaun Toub (Homeland, Crash) and Navid Negahban (Homeland, Legion, Aladdin).

Zonder created the show with Dana Eden and Maor Kohn. Directed by Daniel Syrkin, Tehran is written by Zonder and Omri Shenhar.

The series is executive produced by Eden, Shula Spiegel, Alon Aranya, Julien Leroux, Peter Emerson and Eldad Koblenz. It is produced by Donna and Shula Productions in association with Paper Plane Productions, with the participation of Cineflix Rights and Greek pay TV broadcaster Cosmote TV.
