Netflix has announced that it is ready to produce a youth drama from a girls' school in Amman, entitled "Al Rawabi Girls School", to be the latest in its original productions in the Middle East.
"Al Rawabi Girls School" is an Arab women's work written and directed by the young Jordanian director Tema Shoumali, in collaboration with writer Sherine Kamal, in addition to a women's championship in front and behind the cameras.
The series, which takes place at Al Rawabi School for Girls, presents dramatic details when one of the girls tries to take revenge on her colleagues after being bullied. The verse turns upside down and becomes accused. And discover that everyone fluctuates between two faces, each of them Saleh and another bad face, the first of them.
Commenting on the new series, Simran Sethi, Global Business Director at Netflix said: "We are proud to partner with Tema again to introduce Al Rawabi School for Girls, the first Arab youth drama where women take the lead not only behind the screen but also in front of them. Are excited to share this story, which offers a new perspective of Arab content to all our followers in more than 190 countries around the world. "
