From tourism to trade, the spread of Coronavirus has put many industries at stake, forcing some out of business. The film industry has had its share of obstacles, as many production companies around the world resorted to putting the production of films and series on hold.
With the Ramadan season coming up, many speculated the possibility of cancelling production. However, the head of the Actors’ Syndicate, Ashraf Zaki, revealed in several interviews that not all productions stopped. Those that are still in the works are the ones that are almost finished filming, and they’re all taking the needed safety precautions. He also added that many workers and technicians in the industry get paid on a daily or weekly basis, and stopping production will not allow them to make a living.
So, which series should we expect this Ramadan? See the full list below.
Starring none other than Adel Imam, the comedy series follows the story of Nour Mohamed Ahmed, known as Valentino, an international schools owner whose affairs get him in so much trouble.
