Today, one out of four Israeli TV shows are either adapted or sold overseas. From Fauda to Shtisel and Euphoria, the Israeli TV industry has had a global impact. Whether based on political or religious issues, topics that are rooted in Israeli society also appear to carry a universal resonance that makes them popular internationally. In this insightful documentary made for French television, filmmaker Olivier Joyard takes us behind the scenes of the Israeli TV industry, interviewing scholars and some of the most prominent writers, actors, producers and directors today, to explore the reasons behind the shows’ global appeal.
