At the height of the Cold War, ex-soldier and convicted thief Harry Palmer (Joe Cole, Gangs of London, Peaky Blinders) is recruited to an unorthodox British spy unit whose boss, Dalby (Tom Hollander, Pride & Prejudice), wants his help to retrieve a missing scientist.

Working alongside cool, ambitious agent Jean (Lucy Boynton, Bohemian Rhapsody), Harry’s journey will take him to the wrong side of Berlin, the risky hedonism of Beirut and the blinding light of a Pacific H-bomb test – before one step too many lands him an unwitting role in a violent political conspiracy.

The Dreamers (Thursday, May 26, 2022)
EXCLUSIVE | Binge Premiere

The Dreamers tells the story of three young Palestinian students who travel to Tel Aviv in 2008 and try to establish a new and liberated Palestinian community for themselves. When the three friends, Warda (Maisa Abd Elhadi), Kayes (Riyad Sliman) and Salah (Aiman Daw), try to buy drugs and get high at the end of a long day, they find themselves caught in a drug deal with a Palestinian crime family who ultimately see the three indebted students as ideal accomplices for getting their goods distributed among local youth.

This gets them into trouble with the local crime world, the police and their own families. The story is set against the backdrop of the rising tensions in the Gaza Strip, and the trio realizes that, in order to unload the drugs, they have to create the “new Palestinian scene.” In their own unique way, they decide to initiate an anti-war protest in the form of a large music festival featuring Jews and Palestinians together. Along the way, they create a historic moment in the Palestinian and Jewish underground scene. (Arabic/Hebrew Language Drama, 10 episodes, 2022)
