Created by the award-winning Gideon Raff for Keshet Broadcasting, Prisoners of War is the original Israeli drama upon which Showtime’s Emmy®-award winning Homeland was based.
The series follows the story of three Israeli soldiers held captive for 17 years and the lives they return to after being released. Having become national icons, they not only have to rebuild their personal relationships, but reintegrate into the community. As the soldiers struggle to reconnect with family and rejoin society, details about their imprisonment surface that lead to more questions. When secrets of the years gone by begin coming to light, betrayal, resentment and suspicion threaten to destroy their lives all over again.
Since 2011, Prisoners of War has consistently been the number one drama in Israel. This intriguing and pensive narrative will keep viewers guessing as new facts are gradually uncovered. Starring Yoram Toledano, Yaël Abecassis, Ishai Golan, Mili Avital, Assi Cohen and Adi Ezroni, Prisoners of War: Season One is a psychological drama that will captivate audiences.
