Critically acclaimed Israeli TV series Fauda is about to mark another historical achievement by being dubbed into Farsi.
The Farsi version of the show is slated to air on Manoto TV, an international Persian-language channel based in London.
Fauda, which means “chaos” in Arabic, became a global hit almost immediately after its first season aired in Israel. The show, which has bilingual scripts in Hebrew and Arabic, has been praised internationally for its gritty realism and unsparing portrayal of undercover commandos who pose as Arabs to pursue terrorists in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Co-created by Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff, and produced by Yes Satellite Television Company, Fauda is considered the strongest TV brand exported by Israel. To date, it has aired in 190 countries through Netflix.
“We are proud that Fauda is airing on this channel, and that it will, for the first time, allow a Farsi-speaking audience to watch the series and see the conflict from unfamiliar angles,” said Issacharoff.
