“Beautiful, like only a unique one-time thing can be.‎” – Ha’aretz

Acclaimed author and TV writer Sayed Kashua, the creator of the hit series Arab Labour, is back with a new show, The Writer. This gentle comedy is a mockumentary based on Kashua’s own life as an Arab Israeli who lives with his family in a secular neighbourhood in Jerusalem. Our protagonist, Kateb, is enjoying a huge success with his TV show (called, as you could probably guess, Arab Labour), but he is not happy.
