From real estate, to entertainment, to socialites and influencers, 'Dubai Bling' will offer behind-the-scenes access to the daily lives of 10 Arab millionaires.
Netflix has announced the cast of a reality show titled Dubai Bling, the latest on the Arabic content slate.
The predominantly Arab group of friends is a combination of well-known figures from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Kuwait and Iraq plus expats from India and Australia, who all call Dubai home.
The cast includes Zeina Khoury, Lojain Omran, Kris Fade, Ebraheem Al Samadi, Farhana Bodi, Marwan Al-Awadhi, Safa Siddiqui, and Loujain Adadah.
In a statement, Netflix said: “Zeina Khoury may play hard, but she works harder. Zeina left Lebanon, driven by ambitions for greatness, and went on to become the CEO of a thriving luxury real estate empire. Bold and beautiful, Zeina is the link connecting the social circle together – can they all stay on her good side?
“One of the most recognisable faces on Saudi TV, celebrity and TV host Lojain Omran welcomes fans behind-the-scenes of her glamorous life, boasting an enviable wardrobe of gowns, jewels and accessories galore. But there is more to Lojain than meets the eye. From sharing her Saudi culture with the social circle to inspiring young Arab women across the region with her inspirational and positive energy, Lojain is a calm and centred presence in the social circle. Can Lojain serve as the voice of reason as her friends bicker and fall out?
“You’ve heard his Australian accent bright and early on weekday mornings and now, Kris Fade, radio host and entrepreneur, is hitting your screens. Having built his brand on his upbeat and fun-loving personality, Kris is beginning a new chapter in life, with bride-to-be Brianna Ramirez. Can Kris and Brianna balance the demands of wedding planning, raising a family and managing their wild work schedules, without alienating their friends?
“Businessman and Kuwaiti millionaire, Ebraheem Al Samadi, has been honing his entrepreneurial flair since the age of 14, ultimately building a flourishing floral firm. The business may be blooming but will his relationships with the rest of the social circle fair as well when faced with Ebraheem’s trademark blunt honesty?”
Netflix added: “Farhana Bodi, single mother and social media influencer, is known for sharing her lavish life of high-fashion, jet-set holidays and exquisite events with her 1.4m followers. No stranger to drama, can Farhana keep the social circle on side when the phones are down and there are no more filters to hide behind?
“Spurning tradition and instead choosing to chase his passion all the way to global fame, is Emirati DJ Marwan Al-Awadhi, better known as DJ Bliss and his wife, vivacious vlogger, Danya Mohammed, AKA Diva Dee. The free-spirited dynamic duo may love each other fiercely, but can open and honest communication bring them even closer?
“Born and raised in London and of Iraqi descent, Safa Siddiqui is a housewife with ambitions to bring her chic and unusual fashion designs to life with her own collection. Effervescent and full-of-life, Safa has the full support of Fahad, her enterprising and highly successful husband as she pursues her dreams. Can Fahad and Safa achieve their personal and professional goals together?”
Netflix concluded: “And finally, the newest arrival to the roaring Dubai social scene is Lebanese socialite and mother of two daughters, Loujain Adadah. Outspoken, assertive and not shy to speak her mind, she has joined the social circle but will the bling city be the fresh start Loujain is hoping for?”
Dubai Bling is produced by Different Productions and will premiere on October 27, exclusively on Netflix.
