"The Honorable Woman" follows Nessa Stein (Maggie Gyllenhaal), whose father was a Zionist arms procurer; as children, she and her brother witnessed his assassination. Years later, after inheriting her father's company, she dramatically inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank.

Her continued involvement in the region embroils her in an international political maelstrom. The project is an Eight Rooks and Drama Republic Production for BBC TWO and is co-produced by SundanceTV. The eight-part miniseries is written and directed by BAFTA Award(R) winner Hugo Blick (The Shadow Line).
