Netflix has launched the first trailer for new series ‘The Spy’, inspired by the real-life story of Mossad agent Eli Cohen played by Sacha Baron Cohen.

In six hour-long episodes, the series follows Cohen as he successfully goes undercover in early 1960s Syria and becomes close enough to ambitious military leaders and their rich friends to earn a game-changing level of trust about Syria’s biggest anti-Israel secret initiatives.

Written and directed by Gideon Raff, Max Perry co-writes on episodes three through six.
