'Homeland' Relocates Production From Israel Over Syria War Fears


The filming of some scenes for the third season that were planned to take place in Israel is now moved to Morocco amidst talks of a potential U.S. military strike on Syria.

"Homeland" moves its production from Israel to Morocco over safety concern. The plan was to shoot some scenes of the show's season 3 in the Tel Aviv area, but the filming is now relocated due to the escalating tension in the Middle East amid talks of a possible U.S. military strike on Syria.

To The Hollywood Reporter, a representative from Fox 21, which produces the show, confirms the news first reported by Israeli outlet Ynet. An unnamed Israeli producer reportedly calls the switch "frustrating."

"Homeland" has previously filmed some parts of the first two seasons in Tel Aviv as well as Barta'a, a small town that straddles the Green Line. The choice of Morocco as the alternative place does not come as surprise since FX's pilot "Tyrant", from "Homeland" creators Howard Gordon and Gideon Raff, will also shoot there.

"Homeland" season 3 debuts Sunday, September 29 at 9 P.M. on Showtime. On the same day, "The Simpsons" will spoof the thriller series on its 25th season premiere episode.
