Viu, a pan-regional OTT video service from PCCW Media Group, will launch six Viu Original productions on its platform for Ramadan this year.
The line-up comprises of Sultanet El Moez, Shahed Ayan, Gama’ Salem, El Khawabi and Reyah El Somoum, and will be streamed only on Viu during Ramadan, with one episode being released each day of the month. The 35-minute episodes will be full of action, suspense, drama as well as funny moments.
Speaking about the Ramadan shows, Wesam Kattan, Vice President of Content of Viu MENA, expressed, “Viu’s approach to creating Viu Original productions has always been to bring unconventional narratives to life that appeal to both Gen Z and Viu’s wider audience. With our new line-up of Ramadan shows, viewers will have a range of content for their consumption that explores various themes including women empowerment, self-exploration and adventure, among many others.”
Arab stars that will star in the Viu Originals include well-known Egyptian actor Hassan El Raddad, one of Egypt’s most popular young actors, and Hana Shiha, who is known for featuring in various regional hit series. El Raddad and Shiha will appear in the Viu Original Shahed Ayan. Egyptian actor and model, Zeina, is also set to come back to her millions of fans in the Viu Original Gama’ Salem.
