'Arab Labor' Makes Season 4 Debut on KCET

Support Provided By

They're back! The Alian family -- namely Amjad -- is back to their old shenanigans in the newest and final season of "Arab Labor," which made its KCET debut on Friday.

New half-hour episodes air back-to-back Fridays at 10 and 10:30 p.m. Full episodes will also be streaming online indefinitely. New videos will be posted here weekly during the broadcast.

Amjad and Bushra discover that they're about to become parents for the third (unplanned) time in the season opener. Bushra is confined to bed rest, and Amjad finds himself torn between his pregnant wife, his family, and his new career as a political media consultant.

Later episodes find Amjad mistakenly joining the leaders of the "tent protesters" in Jerusalem. Meanwhile, Meir and Amal go through financial hardships and are forced to move out of their comfortable apartment and move to East Jerusalem.
