The series is directed by Hadi El Bagoury, starring Hend Sabry who will also serve as executive producer for the first time.
Netflix has released a series of images offering a first look at its upcoming Hend Sabry project, which marks the Egyptian-Tunisian star’s return to one of her famous characters for the first time in 10 years.
Entitled Finding Ola, the Arabic series will continue the adventures of young pharmacist Ola Abdel Sabour after she first appeared in the 2010 comedy-drama Ayza Atgawez.
Picking up 10 years later, Ola may be older and wiser, but she is still exploring who she is as a woman while trying to find the balance between her role as a mother, wife and entrepreneur. An inspirational story of self-discovery and new beginnings, the six-episode series will follow Ola as she navigates life’s many challenges, Netflix said.
Joining Ola on her adventure is renowned actress Sawsan Badr, in the role of Ola’s mother, Suhair, and co-star Hani Adel, starring as Ola’s husband Hisham. Nada Mousa, Mahmoud El-Leithy, and Dalia Shawky will also join the cast along with a star-studded line-up of guest appearances, including the prominent actor Khaled El-Nabawy.
Sabry will star as Ola but also serve as a first time executive producer on the show, through her company Salam Productions, in cooperation with Partner Pro & Executive Producer Amin El Masri.
The series’ characters are inspired by the writer Ghada AbdelAal, scripted by Maha Alwazir and Ghada AbdelAal, and directed by Hadi El Bagoury.
