Chen Hadad for Haaretz:

The awards, which were hosted this year by “Insecure” star Yvonne Orji, recognize non-English-language television programs as well as those originally aired outside the United States.

“Tehran,” originally broadcast on Kan in Israel and on Apple TV+ internationally, competed against India’s “Araya,” Chile’s “El Presidente” and the United Kingdom’s “There She Goes.”

The series’ co-creator and executive producer Dana Eden said in her acceptance speech that the prize represents an enormous honor.
