Filming: Kabul

Since April 1, 2024, a new international production by the European Alliance has been being produced in Athens and the surrounding area in co-production with New8: The drama series with the working title “Kabul” puts the events surrounding the arrival of the Taliban on August 14, 2021 at the center of the plot: While the Taliban are at the gates of the city, France is preparing to evacuate its embassy. But the sudden fall of Kabul the next day thwarts all plans.
