The show will be permanently available on Shahid, with the premiere date to be revealed soon.
Egyptian production Madraset el-Moshaghbeen (The School of Mischief) will be shown in colour for the first time, after over 50 years of success on TV in black and white, on MBC’s premium SVOD service Shahid VIP.
The plot is about a new teacher, played by Egyptian actress Soheir El Bably, who works in a rough Cairo neighbourhood. Egyptian actor Adel Imam, alongside fellow comedy stalwarts Saeed Saleh and Younes Shalaby, as well as Ahmed Zaki, play a group of troublesome children who can only be controlled through the unorthodox methods of the new teacher.
Written by acclaimed playwright and poet Ali Salem, and directed by Galal El-Sharkawy, Madraset el-Moshaghbeen was inspired by the 1967 British film To Sir, with Love starring Sidney Poitier.
Madraset el-Moshaghbeen is part of a growing number of classic Egyptian plays being made available on major streaming services.
The show will be on Shahid permanently, with the premiere date to be revealed soon.
