By Nada Hamouda
The world’s leading internet entertainment service, Netflix, announced that its first Arabic original series begins shooting on Monday in Amman, Jordan. Mixing themes of Supernatural and Teen Soap, Jinn will follow friendship, love, and adventures.
Produced by Kabreet Productions, this supernatural teenage drama is directed and executively produced by the Lebanese Mir Jean Bou Chaaya. “This is a great opportunity to portray Arab youth in a very unique way. The level of authenticity Netflix is trying to achieve with this show is definitely what attracted me the most to be part of this project,” said Bou Chaaya.
Jinn will feature a cast of young up and coming local talent including Salma Malhas as Mira, a rebellious teen still devastated after the loss of her mother who learns to love again when she meets Keras, played by Hamza Abu Eqab. However, the six-episode series is expected to launch to all Netflix members all around the world in 2019.
