Back to School

Netflix has announced its newest original Middle Eastern series, AlRawabi School for Girls, a high school drama with a full female Arab cast and crew. The show is written and directed by Jordanian director Tima Shomali in collaboration with writer Shirin Kamal. It will be the second Middle Eastern original from Netflix after Jinn, the Jordan-based drama series set to be released later in 2019. In a press release, Simran Sethi, director of International Originals at Netflix, said about the new series: “We are extremely proud to partner with Tima again to produce what is essentially the first Middle Eastern young adult series that celebrates the role of women, not only on screen, but behind the scenes as well.”
