Fertile Crescent: Series about Syrian Civil War

Hulu has ordered Fertile Crescent, an 8-episode drama series set in during the Syrian Civil War.

James Purefoy, best known for his performances in “Rome” and “The Following,” will star in the series which delves into the civil war through the eyes of Antoine, a young French man, in search for his estranged, presumed to be dead sister.

While unraveling the mystery, piece by piece, Antoine ends up joining forces with a unit of Kurdish female fighters, fierce women and ISIS’ biggest nightmare, and travels with them in ISIS occupied territory. Antoine’s journey crosses paths with adventurers and anarchists, spies and innocent victims.

Fertile Crescent will provide a unique look on the tragic events in Syria, and the way they affect the entire world.
