MBC Group’s streaming platform Shahid is set to premiere anthology TV series Beirut 6:07 on October 17.
The series, produced by Imagic Group’s The Big Picture Studios, is a not-for-profit production that pays tribute to the immense casualties of the Beirut port blast through a succession of 15 short stories inspired by true events and real people.

Each episode will recount the story of a victim, survivor, or hero, through the eyes of a different director and cast, all of whom worked pro bono on the project.
The joint collaboration saw production equipment provided free of charge by FinalCut Equipped, while MBC Group and its streaming platform, Shahid VIP, covered photography and production crew costs.
Beirut 6:07 will be streamed on Shahid VIP before airing on MBC4 on November 22.
Following the devastating explosions that tore through Beirut in the summer of 2020, hundreds were brutally killed, thousands were injured and many remain missing.
