Preparing for Turning It into a 60-episode TV Series
The Producers Acquires the Adaptation Rights to Writer Noor Abdulmajeed's Duology Ana Shahira and Ana El Kha'en
Determined to carry on with its plan turning successful Arab literary works into films and TV series, Producer and Managing Director of The Producers, Hani Osama, revealed that the company has acquired the TV adaptation rights to writer Noor Abdulmajeed's duology Ana Shahira and Ana El Khayen, which will be turned into a 60-episode TV series split into two seasons.
Talking about this step, Osama said, "Once again we are about to uncover the great potential in one of the many successful literary works. Noor Abdulmajeed's novel is quite exceptional and that makes of it an attractive material to be turned into a remarkable TV drama. By making it into two seasons, viewers will be able to enjoy an unusual experience throughout 60 episodes".
Ana Shahira and Ana El Kha'en is a novel-duology written by author Noor Abdulmajeed and published by Al Dar Al Masriah Al Lubnaniah in 2013 in two separate books. Abdulmajeed
recounts the story from the perspectives of its two main characters, Shahira and Raouf, each in a separate book. The first book presents the story as experienced by Shahira, and the second book is from Raouf's, her partner, point of view. Infidelity and revenge make up the central idea of the story, so after Raouf has betrayed Shahira, she decides to avenge her dignity by doing the same, out of wrath, but it turns ugly for both of them.
This comes after The Producers has announced its acquisition of the rights to adapt Nabil Farouk's novel Man of the Impossible into film and TV productions. The company has also acquired the rights to adapt Ibrahim El-Mahallawy's novel Dragunov that will be turned into a film soon. Previously, The Producers turned Mohamed Sadek's best-selling book Hepta into the highest-grossing romantic film in the history of Egyptian cinema, Hepta: The Last Lecture, as the film's revenues reached more than 25 million EGP.
