CEO Fares Seyagh has expressed an intention to partner with other companies to co-produce news seasons of its shows ‘Jalta’ and ‘Meen Byisbo2’.
Jordan’s Roya Media Group is looking to enter into co-production deals for the next seasons of its productions Jalta and Meen Byisbo2, according to Fares Sayegh, CEO of the Group.
Jalta – Stroke of Luck was created and written by The Creative Lab and implemented by The Show, both of which belong to the media house.
The series enjoyed success, particularly in its fourth season, which aired during Ramadan this year. Featured in the show are prominent Arabic talent, including Syrian artists Mohammad Kheir Jarrah, Jenny Esber and Lea Mabardi, Iraqi artist Sulaf Jalil and Jordanian artists Amal Dabbas and Zuhair El-Nubani.
The show had 57.8m on Roya’s website and social media avenues, 21m of which were on Snapchat in Saudi Arabia. Coupled with 2.5m interactions on Facebook, the success has prompted Roya Media Group to prepare for a fifth season to air next Ramadan.
Meen Byisbo2 mimics a competition that revolves around adventure. Hosts Wissam Sabbagh and Ely Chemaly travel to Jordan to uncover archaeological and ancient sites in the country’s governates based on puzzles made by the crew, with the first arriving at sites crowned the winner.
Similarly, the online traction the show gained has triggered talks for a new season to be hosted in another country in partnership with another production company.
Sayegh made the announcement at CABSAT– DISCOP 2022.
