OSN to stream new unscripted original titled ‘Al Shifra’ in September

OSN has announced a celebrity escape room challenge titled Al Shifra. The latest OSN Originals will be streamed on OSN Streaming App on September 5.

With a total of six episodes, 24 celebrities will be competing and rushing against the clock to break-out of an escape room. The participants will be assigned the escape challenge in pairs and will face unique challenges and puzzles to test their mettle, planning, and creativity.

“Al Shifra is a fantastically clever, engaging show that spreads excitement among viewers and fans as they watch and cheer their favourite celebrities in action. In just one year, the response to OSN Originals – a major milestone for us –has been phenomenal and inspiring. This unscripted game series perfectly fits what we are aiming to achieve through our originals. Al Shifra is a testament to our commitment to double OSN’s investment in original content this year, and joins the hugely popular A’adet Regala and Yalla Neta’asha (Come Dine with Me) under the umbrella of unscripted Arabic content. The audience will get a chance to get closer with the stars we know and love and we may come away with a greater understanding and appreciation of their real selves and their art. We are honoured to feature such an enviable galaxy of stars in one title, and we have not compromised on the ideation, sets, and production value, which are all worthy of this celebrity cohort”, said the Senior Vice President of Arabic Services & Original Production at OSN, Darine ElKhatib.

With a focus on quick responses, creativity, and agility, and surrounded by designed sets, each episode is placed in a unique setting, which adds to the story and the challenge itself. Challengers set-out to escape from a hospital, a haunted house, a grim zoo, or a disaster-stricken resort.

OSN Originals is also set to reveal the details of another brand-new comedy production titled No Activity.
