The online streaming company recently declared that four Ramadan productions with be available on its platform for the first time in its history.

‘I Have a Script’ stars veteran Kuwaiti actress Souad Abdullah and Shujoun Al-Hajri in a social comedy that revolves around a woman who decides to follow her passion for writing TV show scripts.

‘What If?’ is a Kuwaiti production about the lives of four individuals who cross paths during pivotal moments in each of their lives. It stars Munther Rayhana, Khaled Amin, Aseel Omran, and Rawan Mahdi. 

‘In the Bosom of a Thorn’ is a production set during the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. It is the story of a child who comes back home looking for her mother years after she was taken away at the time of war. The series stars popular Kuwaiti actress Elham Fadala alongside several other actors.

Netflix appears to be growing its presence even more in the region. Last month, the streaming company introduced its second original Arab series titled AlRawabi School for Girls.
