Hollywood Suite is proud to be the exclusive Canadian home of the all-new HBO Max Original 10-part war drama, 'Valley of Tears', launching Saturday, December 19 at 9pm ET. The biggest budget Israeli TV series of all time, 'Valley of Tears' comes to Hollywood Suite following the smashing success of its debut in its home country and on HBO Max in the US.
The series is inspired by the true events of the 1973 Yom Kippur War in Israel. Leading up to the ultimate battle, the series follows young combatants thrust into a war that was later revealed could have been avoided by leaders they blindly trusted.
Shot at the actual location of the war, these intimate portraitures highlight the tension, anxieties and sentiments of the country's people through a magnified lens, with the unprecedented outcome of an unlikely victory.
“Valley of Tears is not only an important historical war drama but also an exciting programming event for Hollywood Suite and our viewers,” said David Kines, President, Hollywood Suite. “We could not be happier to welcome this high-calibre, original series, which broke viewership records in Israel, as the first of many exclusive programming acquisitions for the Canadian market.”
The series stars Lior Ashkenazi (Foxtrot), Aviv Alush (The Shack), Lee Biran, Shahar Taboch, Joy Rieger, Ofer Hayoun (HBO’s Euphoria), Imri Biton (Just for Today) and Maor Schwitzer (Shtisel). Valley Of Tears was created and co-written by Israeli-American TV and film writer Ron Leshem (HBO’s Euphoria), Amit Cohen (False Flag), Daniel Amsel and Yaron Zilberman (A Late Quartet); the latter also directed the entire series.
'Valley of Tears' is an HBO Max Original co-produced with WestEnd Films, United King and Endemol Israel. It was broadcast first on the Israeli broadcaster KAN and is currently streaming on HBO Max in the US.
Episodes 1 and 2 of 'Valley of Tears' will premiere back-to-back Saturday, December 19, with a new episode airing each following Saturday.
