Trivia

Dialogue in season 2 suggests that Abbudin is fictionally located between Syria and Lebanon.
Whenever interactions between characters takes place in the Palace Halls or conference rooms the ambience is almost picture perfect, shining and symbolising the persona that one carries in the outside world. But whenever these interactions shift to their personal rooms (except Jamal's) the walls are dull, gloomy and the paint is symbolic of their inner worlds - weathered by rough seasons.
The production is filmed in cities around Israel.
Dialog in season 2 suggests that Abuddin borders Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan. In other words, it seems to exist where Israel does in the real world.

During a November 2016 New York Times showrunner roundtable focused on TV's depiction of Muslim characters, Howard Gordon expressed regret for the fact that many of the Arab characters in "Tyrant," including the lead, were not played by actors of Arab descent: "I did a show called 'Tyrant,' one I was not running, but kind of wound up running. The lead was sort of the Arab Godfather, except the family business happened to be the military dictatorship of this country. So, right away, the tone of the show is up for grabs. It was at some level ambitious but ill-conceived, and we wound up casting, in the end, a Brit, who had not a drop of [Arab descent]....A white guy....Why we didn't find someone [else], I don't know why. I will call it my inattention, and somehow this happened, and I knew, at some visceral level, this is going to be, among the many challenges, perhaps the greatest challenge."
