The Homeland of Homeland

Nearly 100 TAU and OSP alumni and friends gathered at Sonya and Howard Waldow's beautiful Beverly Hills home for a warm and intimate evening with Gideon Raff, the award winning, creator, writer, and director of Showtime's Homeland, and Pat Saperstein, deputy editor of Variety and founder of Pat interviewed Gidi, a graduate of TAU's Department of Film and Television, and offered an insider's perspective of the show, based on his earlier Israeli series Hatufim. The evening included clips from both versions of the show, and a lively Q&A. Read more about the evening in this Variety article:
