Egyptian comedy show Abla Fahita is coming to Netflix

Netflix is bringing back Abla Fahita in her first scripted series to drop in 2020, the streaming giant announced. The show will mark the streaming giant’s second Egyptian original series and will show how Fahita’s life is turned upside down following her stardom in the format of a comedy drama. It will be produced by OKWRD production in cooperation with ASAP Productions and Executive Producer Amin El Masri. In response to the partnership with Netflix, Abla Fahita said, “I always say that Egyptian comedy is a great product for export after the Egyptian cotton. And it’s obvious how the world today is a sad place in dire need of laughter. And nothing beats the Egyptian sense of humor in relieving the world of its misery.” The diva puppet is going global as Netflix will release the series in more than 20 languages and across 190 countries.
