Available on iTunes, Prime Video, Tubi TV
Meet Mahmud Nasir (Omid Djalili, Sex and the City 2), loving husband, doting father and something of a "relaxed" Muslim. He may not be the most observant, but in his heart he is a true Muslim. After his mother's death, Mahmud finds his birth certificate, which reveals that he was adopted at birth and he's Jewish, with the real name of Solly Shimshillewitz! As Mahmud tumbles headlong into a full-scale identity crisis, the only person he can turn to is Lenny (Richard Schiff, The West Wing), a drunken Jewish cabbie. Soon Mahmud is embarking on lessons in Jewishness, starting with how to dance like Topol and the proper way to say "oy vey." This revelation couldn't come at a worse time, with Mahmud's son about to marry the stepdaughter of a radical Muslim cleric. Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) and Matt Lucas (Little Britain) join the cast of this hilarious "English farce meets Woody Allen" (Ricky Gervais).
