The Israeli television drama “Prisoners of War,” which inspired the American TV drama “Homeland,” will be available on Hulu.com.

“Prisoners of War,” which began airing in March 2010 and is now in its second season, centers on the lives of three Israeli soldiers who have returned home after more than a decade in captivity in Lebanon.

The New York Times reported that two of the show’s first 10 episodes are available on Hulu.com, which streams TV shows and movies. New episodes will appear every Saturday.

Hulu is not available in Israel.

“Prisoners of War” was named 2010’s Best Drama Series at the Israeli Academy Awards for Television.

“Homeland,” which began airing last October, focuses on a CIA agent who believes that a returned American prisoner of war may be aiding terrorists.
