My favorite is an Israeli series "Srugim" (yes, it has subtitles) that is available for a modest fee with a subscription to The Jewish Channel. It portrays the intricacies of life and love among Orthodox 30-somethings in secular modern Israel. Although it's a drama, it's rarely melodramatic, opting for a subtle exploration of relationships that rings true to me, even though I'm not Jewish and have never been to Jerusalem. Apparently the writer is part of a movement dedicated to exploring and interpreting religious life to all Israelis--regardless of whether they practice or not.
