Netflix has announced the release of Dollar, a new Arabic-language Original drama set-to-release next month.
Dollar, a 15-episode series starring Lebanese actor-comedian Adel Karam and Algerian actress Amal Bouchoucha, will begin streaming from August 8 and will be available with subtitles in 20 languages.
The storyline of Dollar will follow advertising mastermind Tarek (Karam), who is tasked with coming up with a million-dollar idea for the launch of a new bank. Tarek only wants to share his idea with the CEO, however, and the banks hard-hitting and young CFO Zeina (Bouchoucha) senses something is off.
Im truly excited to be working with Netflix on our new series Dollar and am confident that the show will appeal to Netflixs audiences worldwide, said director Berkawi.
This project is an exciting one, bringing together themes of suspense and drama that showcase Amal Bouchouchas on-screen talents, as well as Adel Karams versatility beyond the comedy that he is known and loved for.
Karam last year became the first Arab comedian with a Netflix stand-up special (Adel Karam: Live From Beirut) and is best known for his satirical work. However, in 2017 he was the lead actor in the Oscar-nominated drama film, The Insult.
Dollar joins a handful of other Arabic Netflix Originals that are in production from the newly released controversial teen supernatural series Jinn to the upcoming book adaptation Paranormal and Al Rawabi School for Girls.
