Sasha Baron Cohen becomes the next big name to star in a Netflix Original. Surprisingly, the actor will be seen in a non-comedy role – and that too, the titular character in a political espionage thriller, The Spy. The Spy is based on the true story of Eli Cohen, the top Mossad spy who was finally hung in the public during the Israel-Syria conflict. The series is a co-production between Netflix and Canal+. OCS will air the series in France and Netflix will stream the show outside France. The screenplay for The Spy is by Gideon Raff and Max Pery, while Gideon Raff directs. Along with Sasha, the series also stars Noah Emmerich.
