After retiring from the Israel Defense Force, Doron is working on a vineyard. He gets roped back into active duty, though, upon learning that an enemy who Doron thought his unit had killed is still alive and plans on attending his brother’s wedding. Doron rejoins the IDF team with the intention of going under cover at the wedding, but the plan goes awry when the team’s cover is blown. That sets into motion a chaotic chain of events and leads IDF into a manhunt to locate and kill the squad’s target.

Hotel Beau Séjour

Teenage Kato is caught in afterlife limbo and investigates her own mysterious death, finding a web of secrets in her village.

La Mante

Decades after she was captured, imprisoned serial killer Jeanne Deber is asked by Paris’ police commissioner to help solve a series of unsolved murders being committed by someone who is copying her crimes from years earlier. Jeanne — who was known as “The Mantis” during her days as a criminal — agrees, but only if estranged son Damien — now a detective — works alongside her. He reluctantly agrees so that they can try to end the copycat’s crime spree. Time is of the essence because as the investigation goes on, the number of victims continues to rise.


Catching a criminal often requires the authorities to get inside the villain’s mind to figure out how he thinks. That’s the job of FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench. They attempt to understand and catch serial killers by studying their damaged psyches. Along the way, the agents pioneer the development of modern serial-killer profiling. The crime drama has a strong pedigree behind the camera, with Oscar-nominated director David Fincher and Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron among the show’s executive producers.

Money Heist

A criminal mastermind who goes by “The Professor” has a plan to pull off the biggest heist in recorded history — to print billions of euros in the Royal Mint of Spain. To help him carry out the ambitious plan, he recruits eight people with certain abilities and who have nothing to lose. The group of thieves take hostages to aid in their negotiations with the authorities, who strategize to come up with a way to capture The Professor. As more time elapses, the robbers prepare for a showdown with the police.

Pine Gap

A group of Australian and American analysts work together to keep one of the world’s most important joint intelligence facilities, Pine Gap, secure and stable.
