Israeli Premiere of ‘Hostages’

In this clip (4:04), hit Israeli TV series ‘Hostages‘ co-creators Rotem Shamir and Omri Givon chat with The Israel Bureau at the show’s premiere. Bought on paper by CBS before the Israeli team secured a network to air the Hebrew version, ‘Hostages’ was filmed concurrently in Israel and, in its adapted American form, in the U.S. Several other international adaptations have been made including an Indian version available for streaming in seven different Indian languages. The Israeli version of the show received international acclaim and received two major awards in the 2014 Monte-Carlo Television Festival: best drama series and best actress (Ayelet Zurer).
