KAN 11, the government channel, has had great timing with its recent series. Tehran, which just concluded in Israel and which will be broadcast on Apple TV soon, is a tense drama about a Mossad agent infiltrating Iran’s nuclear facilities. It was shown just as there was a series of explosions in Iran targeting nuclear and military sites.
The channel’s new series, the gripping and suspenseful Manayak (Hebrew slang for snitch or rat), is about corruption within the police force, and is perfectly in tune with the current moment in which there are mass demonstrations against the government and widespread questioning of authority. It premiered on August 2, with a second episode to be shown on August 3, also at 9:15 p.m. (episodes will also be available on KAN’s website following broadcasts).
