The Friends of Naor
Reshet TV channel 13 (2006)
A sitcom TV series. The series’ creator, who also wrote all the series’ episodes, directed them and starred in them, is Naor Zion, a very successful stand-up comedian.
The series focuses on four good friends, bachelors, in their thirties, who live in Tel-Aviv. At the beginning of each episode, Naor appears in front of an audience, featuring a short stand-up comedy scene.The topic he mentions in the stand-up scene is usually related to the main event of the episode.
