False Flag has a touch of Homeland about it… the next big Israeli drama” – C21 Hot Picks for MIPCOM 2015
Waking up one morning to discover their passports smeared across television screens around the world, five ordinary Israeli citizens are plunged into a gripping international espionage affair. The five soon discover they have been implicated as prime suspects in a high-profile and brutal kidnapping—that of Iranian Minister of Defense during his recent visit to Moscow. Inspired by the assassination of a Hamas leader in Dubai in 2010, False Flag—which has already been acquired for a US remake—immerses the viewer in the suspect world of spying and double-agents, with a tension that manages to retain a degree of irony, all performed with incredible virtuosity. –Jewish International Film Festival of Australia

This thrilling television series follows five Israeli citizens who wake up one morning to find that they are implicated in a kidnapping operation of the Iranian Prime Minister. Blinded by the publicity and closely tailed by Mossad, the varied reactions of the five figures, paired with dual-citizenship passports and incriminating alibis, makes for an incredibly suspenseful drama.

With the series’ rights already purchased by Fox for an American remake, you may be watching the beginnings of the new Homeland! Festival screenings include the San Francisco and Los Angeles Jewish Film Festivals. Colorado Premiere.

Please note that these are the first two episodes of an eight part series.
