Israeli series ‘Harem’ heading for Australia

Harem, the Reshet drama series based on a real-life Israeli cult, has been bought by the SBS Australian public broadcaster.

Reshet announced Monday that SBS had purchased the first season of the show, which includes eight episodes. The series, starring Alon Abutbul, is based on the real case of Goel Ratzon, a polygamist cult leader who was sentenced to 30 years in prison in 2014. Ratzon, a native of Tel Aviv who had more than 30 “wives” and close to 50 children, was eventually convicted of rape, incest, sex with a minor, fraud, slavery and other charges.
