TEHRAN, Oct. 14 (Mehr News Agency) -- Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) plans to air the TV series "Gilad", described by its director Hossein Samieizadeh as a production that highlights the disparities between Judaism and Zionism.
The serial "Gilad" centers around the life of a young man called Ben Hur who immigrates to Iran in the 1940s.
"In the dramatization of the life story of this immigrant, we have attempted to highlight the differences between Judaism and Zionism," Samieizadeh told Mehr News Agency.
"Gilad", which is currently in the final stages of production, was originally slated to be broadcast during the last week of Ramadan, but IRIB was unable to fit it into their busy holy-month schedule.
Hossein Yari, Sepideh Khodaverdi, Shohreh Lorestani, Shahram Abdoli, Mohammad Omrani, Farhad Tajvidi, Mojgan Gholami, and Akbar Zanjanpur are amongst the cast.
No announcement has been made as to the precise timing of the broadcasting of this TV series which has been produced by Mehran Maham.
IRIB's Channel 1 is currently airing "Zero Degree Orbit", Hassan Fat'hi's TV serial that also deals with the discrepancies between Judaism and Zionism.
