The Attaché, a 10-episode drama about an Israeli family living in Paris, debuts today, March 22, on Acorn TV.
Avshalom (Elie Ben-David), an Israeli Jewish man of Moroccan descent, moves with his wife Annabelle (Héloïse Godet) and family to Paris when she becomes the Israeli embassy’s new attaché there. His world is rocked the very first day by a terrorist attack, a harbinger of things to come.
While homesick Avshalom feels like an anonymous immigrant, Annabelle’s life in her new milieu flourishes, causing him to fear that there is a growing gulf between them.
Ben-David, creator of two Israeli comedy series, Anachnu BaMapa and Buba Shel Layla, wrote the series. The show is based on his own experiences living in Paris during recent times of great turbulence in Europe.
The Attaché is in Hebrew and French, with English subtitles.
Acorn TV costs $5.99 monthly, with a seven-day free trial. For more info, visit acorn.tv.
