JLTV is available through DirecTV, Spectrum and Xfinity in the U.S. and more, and Bell Fiber in Canada.
JLTV’s decision to acquire these iconic television series lines up with its commitment and mission to provide high-quality, Jewish-inspired content to audiences across North America. “Our goal has always been to provide our viewers with the best programming possible and what better way than to bring such groundbreaking series to our network. Living in such unprecedented times, we look to deliver strong, compelling and award-winning content for viewers of all ages and all faiths who share an interest in the Jewish experience and the State of Israel,” explained JLTV’s Steven Paul.
The series will air twice a week in primetime with a bonus weekend run. “Fauda” and “Prisoners of War” will air every Thursday night at 8 pm ET/PT, and 9 pm ET/PT respectively, followed by the original new series “Inside Fauda” and “Inside Prisoners of War” at 10:30 pm ET/PT, showcasing never-before-seen interviews about the making-of both series. The network will provide a bonus run of these programs on Sundays, with “Fauda” at 4 pm ET, “Prisoners of War” at 5 pm ET and “Inside Fauda” and “Inside Prisoners of War” alternatively at 6:30 pm ET.
Presented by Brad Pomerance, Emmy-nominated Host and Senior Vice President, News & Programming at JLTV, “Inside Fauda” and “Inside Prisoners of War” will feature in-depth interviews with cast and crew from each show to get an inside, behind-the-scenes look at the making of these hit series. Audiences will hear first-hand how the actors brought their complex characters to the screen, as well as from producers, writers and directors, about how they brought these incredibly rich stories to the adoring worldwide audiences. “We are thrilled to bring these phenomenal shows to our network. We dig deep with several members of the cast, as well as writers and directors, as they reveal what it was actually like to work on two of the most acclaimed international shows to hit North America,” Brad Pomerance stated.
Without a doubt, as JLTV prepares to debut international hit series on their network, it is through such top-tier programming that the network educate audiences, spark meaningful dialogue, promote acceptance and understanding, and ultimately, combat hate and antisemitism in its many forms.
