Description

The story of a man trying to rewrite his life. From Sayed Kashua, the writer of Arab Labor, this new series follows a fictionalized version of Kashua: Kateb, a Palestinian TV writer living in Israel. Following the success of Arab Labor, Kateb has become a poster boy for the new Arab-Israeli. But while he is embraced by the public, his fans conflate him with his fictionalized self, Ahmed from Arab Labor. With wit, satire, and outright humor, Kashua asks pointed personal questions about putting oneself on the screen, exploiting one’s own identity, and how one’s choices determine their life’s path.
