The Showtime drama series “Homeland” is reportedly infuriating Pakistani officials, who claim the fourth season of the show portrays their country as an “ugly, ignorant, terror-plagued ‘hellhole,’” the New York Post reports.
Diplomats reportedly took “copious notes” while watching all 12 episodes, and then complained to the show’s producers. The officials feel their complaints weren’t given weight, however.
“Maligning a country that has been a close partner and ally of the US … is a disservice not only to the security interests of the US but also to the people of the US,” Pakistan Embassy spokesman Nadeem Hotiana told the publication.
The scenes set in Islamabad were actually taped in Cape Town, South Africa.
