The Network


Unique, uplifting and heartbreaking, "The Network" is the story of Afghanistan’s first independent television network – TOLO TV – and the family behind it. TOLO TV has grown to be Afghanistan’s largest and most successful television network employing over 800 Afghans producing news, current affairs, drama, comedy, music, and lifestyle programs. But as the country faces the impending withdrawal of foreign troops, and with security rapidly deteriorating, the team behind TOLO TV are set to face their biggest challenge yet.
