Apple TV+ have secured the international rights to Israel-Iran espionage thriller 'Tehran' according to a report published today by Deadline.
The eight part limited series comes from writer Moshe Zonder (Netflix's 'Fauda') in which a Mossad computer-hacking agent is hunted in her hometown of Tehran. Finding refuge amongst a group of regime-opposing secular Iranians, she becomes romantically involved with a pro-democracy activist.
Shot mostly in Hebrew and Farsi, 'Tehran' is likely to be the first fully subtitled series available on Apple's streaming service. The Thriller - to be re-cut with Apple co-producing - began airing earlier this year through Iranian broadcaster Kan 11 and stars 'Homeland' alum Shaun Toub and Navid Negahban alongside rising talent Niv Sultan.
Apple TV+ continues to beat-out competition from Netflix and Amazon for content. 'Tehran' follows a successful month for the streaming service with the capture of Tom Hanks WWII epic 'Greyhound' and upcoming projects from Brian Lazarte, James Lee Hernández and Martin Scorsese.
