One of the most interesting series that have come to Apple TV + in recent months is found in the tTehran spy hriller. To promote this fantastic series (if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re already taking time), Apple has uploaded a video to the Apple TV + YouTube channel titled Conversations with a real spy.
In this promotional video, we are introduced to Yoli Reitman, a ex spy showing us various methods used by spies to gather information, while images of the Tehran series are shown. Reitman claims that one of the tests he had to pass during his training phase was tricking a taxi company into giving him the address of one of their employees.
As Reitman states:
When you want to recruit someone for a covert mission, you look for certain traits. The ability to act and impersonate someone else. If you don’t have that, then everything else is irrelevant after that.
The Tehran series is composed of 8 episodes where they show us Tamar Rabinyan, a Mossad agent specializing in computer science, who receives the mission to deactivate an Iranian nuclear reactor, a mission that fails and forces her to hide and try to go unnoticed in Tehran while she falls in love with an activist for democracy.
In the role of Tamar Rabinyan is Niv Sultan in addition to Shaun Toub (Iron Man) and Navid Negahban (Homeland). The series has been created and written by Moshe Zonder, the same writer of the Fauda series which is currently available on Netflix.
The documentary lasts five and a half minutes, it is in English, but we can add Spanish subtitles via YouTube for those who don’t know much about Shakespeare’s language.
