Netflix’s continued effort to commission more originals from the continent has yielded another series from Egypt in development, Deadline reports.
The streaming platform is set to produce a comedy drama in collaboration with popular satirical puppet Abla Fahita, production company OKWRD, ASAP Productions and Amin El Masri as executive producer. This will be the second Netflix original to come from the country.
The show will chronicle Fahita’s journey to stardom and how her life was turned upside down following it. Deadline notes that this will be the first time the character will be acting in a scripted series.
