JNS.org The upcoming Fox television network series “Tyrant,” which will air on the FX cable network this summer, is slated to be partially filmed in the Israeli city of Kfar Saba.

“Tyrant” was created by Israeli filmmaker Gideon Raff—who also created the Israeli TV drama “Prisoners of War” and its American counterpart “Homeland”—and is produced by Howard Gordon, who also worked on “Homeland” and the Fox counter-terrorism drama “24.”

According to the show’s creator, “Tyrant” will be loosely based off of the events in the Arab world, especially Syria, where President Bashar al-Assad went from training to be an eye doctor in England to becoming a mass killer.
