Airing of the series, directed by Behrouz Afkhami, is to be started on November 16, 2019.
‘Mirza Koochack Khan’ is about imperial aggressors who had their eyes during the First World War on Iran, a country dealing with the aftermath of the turmoil caused by its recent constitutional revolution.
It was a time when the country was not only invaded by famine and confusion, but also by two fronts of the war: the Russian Tsar on one side and Britain on the other.
With the government in tatters, it was up to the courageous people to defend their homeland. So movements were initiated all around the country.
One of the most effective movements took place in the province of Guilan, where a local hero named Mirza Koochak Khan and his followers took shelter in the jungles as they fought to protect their beloved Iran.
