Viu to premier two new original series in MENA

Viu has announced the launch of two new Original productions, Ansaf Majaneen and Wadi Al Jinn which will be aired on December 6 at the Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF).

Directed by Omar Rushdy Hamed, Ansaf Majaneen will star Ahmed Khaled Saleh and Asmaa Galal. The story behind is about Anas, a heart transplant patient (played by Saleh) who hears the voice of his donor urging him to solve a mystery that he failed to solve in his own lifetime.

Abe Aboul Naga, General Manager of Viu Middle East, said: “We are honoured to partner with CIFF for the second year in a row and to bring Viu Original series to the Egyptian audience for the very first time. This unique partnership reinforces Viu’s vision to collaborate with and create opportunities for different stakeholders of the Egyptian and pan-Arab film and TV industry.”

Aliaa Zaki, Head of Cairo Industry Days, remarked: “Partnering with Viu is another testament to how CIFF, through its industry platform Cairo Industry Days, acts as an important platform for creating opportunities and establishing synergies between different stakeholders of the film and TV industry. We are excited to extend our collaboration with Viu for another year and look forward to more future engagements between the two organizations.”

Ansaf Majaneen and Wadi Al Jinn will be available to Viu Premium subscribers in 2021.
