A chat with "Homeland" creator Gideon Raff


Gideon Raff, the creative force behind Emmy-winning series Homeland and the Israeli TV drama that inspired it, is becoming a sought-after producer of thrillers. USA Network just picked up a new series of his, Dig, and he recently shot a pilot for FX called Tyrant. Now the first season of his breakout hit, Prisoners of War (or Hatufim -- "Hostages" in Hebrew), is being released on DVD. Raff joined Jian live in studio to talk about the differences between Prisoners of War, the highest-rated Israeli drama ever, and its American adaptation. He also told Jian about the moving response to his televised dramas from real-life POWs and research he does when writing Prisoners of War, including speaking with former POWs and doctors who have diagnosed people with post-traumatic stress disorder.
