The series is produced in collaboration with Filmizion, a Jordanian Film and TV Production company founded by Shomali.
Netflix has released the first trailer for the second Arabic original series titled AlRawabi School for Girls.
According to Netflix, AlRawabi School for Girls is a youthful high school drama produced entirely with a female Arab cast and crew. Written and directed by Jordanian director Tima Shomali in collaboration with writer Shirin Kamal, the show brings a fresh perspective to Arab content and provides a great platform for fresh female Arab voices.
AlRawabi School for Girls is the story of how a bullied girl sets out to get revenge on her bullies, only to find out that no one is all bad and no one is all good, including herself. This will be the second Middle Eastern original reflective of Netflix’s commitment to invest in the Middle East and explore greater stories and talents outside of the mainstream shows we’re always watching.
The trailer gives a glimpse into the world of AlRawabi School, and the politics between the show’s main protagonist and her bullies. It also gives a taste of some of the humour Shomali is known for, with an early reference to Zac Efron’s abs making its way into the preview.
The six-episode show will be released in 190 countries around the world and available in more than 32 languages, and will have options for audio and subtitles.
