Thursday, ABC, 8.35pm
Proving TV is the place to be for the creme de la creme of Hollywood stars these days, Maggie Gyllenhaal (left) is captivating in this eight-parter as Anglo-Israeli businesswoman Nessa Stein, who is caught up in the incredibly dangerous world of Israel-Palestine relations. Nessa, with help from her brother Ephra (Andrew Buchan), is determined to bring peace to one of the world’s most violent places, but many factors and people are conspiring against her. Tonight, Nessa discovers that she is being betrayed by the Israelis and her brother, and Kasim (Oliver Bodur) may not be Atika’s (Lubna Azabal) child.
