Report: Iran state TV halts series after protests

Published: 02.16.14, 11:50 / Israel News

TEHRAN - Iranian media say state TV has stopped broadcasting a series after protesters in the southwest claimed it insulted a prominent local tribe.


IRNA said Sunday that state TV suspended "Sarzamin-e Kohan", or "The Ancient Land". The series is set in the 1940s, 50s and 60s when Iran was a monarchy, before its 1979 Islamic Revolution.


The protesters reportedly claim the series defames the large and powerful Bakhtiari tribe. A Bakhtiari family in the series is depicted as corrupt, nouveau riche and monarchist. (AP)
