Before Homeland started winning Emmy Awards for Best Drama series during its first two seasons, the Israeli series Prisoners of War served as its inspiration. The series was created by Gideon Raff, who now serves as an executive producer on Homeland and the new FX series Tyrant, centering on three Israeli soldiers who finally return home after being held as prisoners of war for the past 17 years. Shout! Factory is bringing this critically-acclaimed series home on DVD for the first time with Prisoners of War: Season One, debuting July 9. To celebrate this release, we have a contest lined up where fans can bring home this new DVD set, to see the gripping drama that inspired the creation of Homeland. These prizes will be gone before you know it, so take a look at how you can win.

Created by the award-winning Gideon Raff for Keshet Broadcasting, Prisoners of War is the original Israeli drama upon which Showtime's Emmy-award winning Homeland was based.
The series follows the story of three Israeli soldiers held captive for 17 years and the lives they return to after being released. Having become national icons, they not only have to rebuild their personal relationships, but reintegrate into the community. As the soldiers struggle to reconnect with family and rejoin society, details about their imprisonment surface that lead to more questions. When secrets of the years gone by begin coming to light, betrayal, resentment and suspicion threaten to destroy their lives all over again.
Since 2011, Prisoners of War has consistently been the number one drama in Israel. This intriguing and pensive narrative will keep viewers guessing as new facts are gradually uncovered. Starring Yoram Toledano, Yaël Abecassis, Ishai Golan, Mili Avital, Assi Cohen and Adi Ezroni, Prisoners of War: Season One is a psychological drama that will captivate audiences.
