For the First Time in the Arab World
The Producers Turns Afezyaa into a Four-Episode TV Series
Cairo, Egypt |Monday - 12 February, 2018:
Determined to carry on with its plan of turning successful Arab literary works into films and TV series, Producer and Managing Director of The Producers, Hani Osama, revealed that the company has acquired the TV adaptation rights to writer Khaled Zidane's novel Afezyaa, which will be turned into a long four-episode TV series, the first of its kind in the Arab world.

Commenting on this step, Osama said, "When I first read Afezyaa, I saw the potential to adapt it into a TV series. These possibilities will not be enough for one film. If it is turned into a long TV series, it will not be as intense as it should be portrayed. Hence, the idea of turning the novel into a series consisting of 4 long episodes, each of which will last for about an hour and a half, in order to optimize the potential of the novel."

Afezyaa (when the dead tell the story of the living) is a novel that sheds light on the human being and destiny, by telling the story of an Aquarius woman and a Gemini man whose lives take a turning point they could not imagine. Khaled Zidane is a young Egyptian novelist who gained fame after his best-selling first novel Afezyaa, Khaled is currently a university lecturer.

The Producers is a pioneer production company in turning successful novels into TV series and films. The Producers turned Mohamed Sadek's best-selling book Hepta into the highest-grossing romantic film in the history of Egyptian cinema, Hepta: The Last Lecture, as the film's revenues reached more than 27 million EGP and reaped more than 20 awards.

Most recently, The Producers has announced its acquisition of the rights to adapt Nabil Farouk's novel Man of the Impossible into film and TV productions start with Adham Sabry film by director Marwan Hamed.

Through The Producers, Hani Osama co-produced Excuse My French, which starred a number of children, the thriller Warda, the first Egyptian feature created in the found-footage style, Before the Summer Crowds, the last film by the great Egyptian director Mohamed Khan, and Sheikh Jackson by director Amr Salama, Egypt's official submission to the 2018 Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film that made about seven million EGP in ticket sales so far.

Announced During the 14th Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF)
Hani Osama Contracts with Marwan Hamed to Direct the First Film in the Adham Sabry Franchise
Cairo, Egypt | Sunday - 17 December, 2017:
Within his activities at the 14th Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF), Producer Hani Osama, Founder and Managing Partner of The Producers, announced that he signed a contract with director Marwan Hamed to direct the first film in the Adham Sabry franchise. The franchise is based on one of the most popular pocket-sized novels in the Arab world, The Man of the Impossible by author Nabil Farouk. The Producers acquired rights to adapt the novels into a film and TV franchise.

Commenting on this, Osama says, "These books have a fan base right across the Arab world. With all the turbulence in the Middle East, we believe the time is right to present a positive character from the region."

The film will be produced with Mohamed Hefzy's Film Clinic and it is set to begin shooting during 2018, after Director Marwan Hamed finishes shooting his film Diamond Dust that is based on a novel with the same title by writer Ahmed Mourad. Shooting of Adham Sabry is going to take placein Egypt, Dubai, China and Europe. "The Arab world has never made a proper movie in China and it's an important market. We hope to have cast from both China and the UAE." said Osama in a statement to Screen International.

The Man of the Impossible is one of the most popular pocket-sized novels written by Egyptian author Nabil Farouk. The series witnessed a huge success in Egypt and the Arab world as 160 titles were published from 1984 to 2009 and sold over 40 million copies worldwide. It follows the tasks undergone by the Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate (GID) operative Adham Sabry related to protecting national security from threats posed by international organizations and hostile intelligence directorates. Adham Sabry is a bilingual, highly skilled, military trained professional, who incorporated many hand-to-hand combat techniques into his style with a high skill of disguise.

Within the Forum's program that is held as part of the Dubai Film Market (DFM), Hani Osama took part in a panel discussion titled The Big Binge Theory. The discussion was about how VOD and streaming services have radically altered the TV landscape, how content is created, distributed and consumed, how to build suspense and hold an audience over many seasons, and how does the volume required by broadcasters affect the production process, financially and creatively.

The Dubai Film Market (DFM) is a unique platform that aims to raise the visibility of Arab cinema in the region and on an international level. The DFM is now considered as the leading industry platform in the region and the gateway to one of the fastest growing film and TV markets in the world.The DFM offers excellent visibility to buyers, sellers, service providers and industry professionals through exhibition spaces, networking opportunities and a thoughtfully curated film library.

Hani Osama is the Founder and Managing Partner of The Producers. Osama is the decision-maker, the man behind the company's vision, who sets its future strategies and picks the creative content that the company presents. Recently, Osama focused on acquiring rights to successful Arab literary works. He took part in turning Mohamed Sadek's best-selling novel Hepta into the film Hepta: The Last Lecture that won more than 20 awards and made more than EGP 27 million in the Egyptian box-office. Hepta: The Last Lecture became the highest-grossing romantic film in the history of the Egyptian cinema. Osama is currently working on turning writer Noor Abdulmajeed's duology Ana Shahira and Ana El Khayen into a 60-episode TV series split into two seasons. But the most recent and exciting project is adapting Nabil Farouk's novel Adham Sabry.

Through The Producers, Osama co-produced the films Excuse My French, which starred a number of children, the thriller Warda, the first Egyptian feature created in the found-footage style, Before the Summer Crowds, the last film by the great Egyptian director Mohamed Khan, and Sheikh Jackson by director Amr Salama, Egypt's official submission to the 2018 Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film that made about EGP seven million in ticket sales so far. The company's TV productions include the TV series A'ard Khas and Zarf Aswad, along with Seventh Neighbor that is airing now on TV. The series is directed by three young female directors for the first time in the Arab world.

Producer Hani Osama (The Producers) revealed that Egyptian star Ahmed Fahmy will be landing the leading role as Raouf in Ana Shahira..

Based on the novel-duology Ana Sahira and Ana El Kha'en by author Noor Abdulmajeed, the new TV series is set to be released in two parts consisting of 30 episodes for each part, narrating the same story but from different points of view for the first time in the Arab TV drama.

Directed by Ahmed Medhat, marking his second collaboration with The Producers since Zarf Aswad (The Black Envelope), the series is scripted by the original novel's author Noor Abdulmajeed.

Previously, it was revealed that Yasmin Raeis is landing in the leading female role as Shahira, Ahmed Fouad Selim will be starring as her father Medhat Abdel Rahman, Hanan Seliman as the mother, and Yaser Ali Maher as the uncle.

Abdulmajeed recounts the story from the perspectives of its two main characters, Shahira and Raouf, each in a separate book. The first book presents the story as experienced by Shahira, and the second book is from Raouf's, her partner, point of view. Infidelity and revenge make up the central idea of the story.

This step comes after The Producers has decided to turn remarkable literary works from the Arab world into distinguished TV drama hits. Previously, the company announced its acquisition of the rights to adapt Nabil Farouk's novel Man of the Impossible into film and TV productions. The Producers, in collaboration with Film Clinic, successfully turned Mohamed Sadek's best-selling book Hepta into the highest-grossing romantic film in the history of Egyptian cinema, Hepta: The Last Lecture, as the film's revenues reached more than 26 million EGP.

In a press release published by El Gouna Film Festival's Programming Committee, it was mentioned that selecting Sheikh Jackson to be screened in the closing ceremony of the 42nd annual Toronto Film Festival (TIFF), clearly highlights the importance of the film and marks its first steps of worldwide recognition. Five days after its screening in Toronto, the much anticipated film will be proudly presented as the opening film of El Gouna Film Festival where it will be viewed by film industry professionals and film critics from Egypt, the Arab world and all over the world. The screening of the film at El Gouna Film Festival will only be its second outing in the international Festival circuit.

Intishal Al Timimi, the Festival Director commented, "Any success achieved by any national festival will never be complete if it fails to attract artists and filmmakers from the region and present their work, hence, the programming team was searching for special Arab films and succeeded in finding a unique Egyptian film to be the opening of the festival, which aligns with the festival's vision to showcase various films from an international ad regional prospective."

El Gouna Film Festival is an annual film festival that will be held for the first time this year. The festival aims to offer a rich program with three main competitions; Feature Narrative Competition, Feature Documentary Competition, and Short Film Competition. In parallel to the screening and program of the festival, the organizers will hold El Gouna Cinema Arena, which will act as a platform to develop and support promising Egyptian and Arab talents.

In this section, Sheikh Jackson competes for the prize of the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) and the Audience Award.

The events of the film take us back to June 25, 2009 as the news of Michael Jackson's death took the world by storm affecting many, especially a preacher who is dubbed "Jackson" during his school days. But, what does a preacher have in common with the King of Pop? More importantly, can he now go back to his normal life, or will his memories and relationships with his loved ones raise the most prominent question in his mind? Is he the Sheikh, Jackson, or both?

Co-produced by The Producers, Film Clinic and iProductions with Daniel Ziskind as Associate Producer, Sheikh Jackson is written and directed by Amr Salama and co-written by Omar Khaled. The film stars Ahmad Al Fishawy, Maged El Kedwany, Ahmed Malek, and Amina Khalil. The film will also feature several guest stars, including Dorra, Basma, and Mahmoud El-Bezzawy.

Seventh Neighbor is a social drama that touches on family issues of a group of neighbors who live in the same apartment building in Heliopolis. Through a number of intertwined stories, the series follows the main characters' secrets behind the closed doors, in contrast to what they show of great happiness, and tracks the social problems they face and difficult choices they have to make alongside the contradictions in what they show in behavior inside their homes and outside.

Amin's feature film Villa 69, starring Khaled Abol Naga and Arwa Gouda, received the Special Jury Award for a Film from the Arab World within the New Horizon Competition at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.

Nadine Khan started her career as a co-director with director Youssry Nasrallah, then with her father, the great late director Mohamed Khan in Banat West El Balad. Her feature debut Harag W' Marag (Chaos, Disorder) (2012) received eight awards at several film festivals including the Special Jury Award at the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF).

For the First Time in the Arab TV Drama: A Story of Betrayal Told from Different POVs
The Producers Reveals Details on Producing Ana Shahira... Ana El Kha'en by Director Ahmed Medhat
Cairo, Egypt | Tuesday- 11 April, 2017:
The Producers has announced the beginning of the pre-production phase of turning writer Noor Abdulmajeed's novel-duology Ana Shahira and Ana El Kha'en into a TV series directed by Ahmed Medhat. For the first time in the Arab TV drama, the two-part TV series consists of 30 episodes for each part, narrating the same story, but from different points of view.

This series marks The Producers' second collaboration with director Ahmed Medhat since Zarf Aswad (The Black Envelope) that has been aired in Ramadan 2015 and enjoyed high rates of viewership.

Ana Shahira and Ana El Kha'en is a novel-duology written by author Noor Abdulmajeed and published by Al Dar Al Masriah Al Lubnaniah in 2013, in two separate books. Abdulmajeed recounts the story from the perspectives of its two main characters, Shahira and Raouf, each in a separate book. The first book presents the story as experienced by Shahira, and the second book is from Raouf's, her partner, point of view. Infidelity and revenge make up the central idea of the story, so after Raouf has betrayed Shahira, she decides to avenge her dignity by doing the same, out of wrath, but it turns ugly for both of them.

This comes after The Producers has announced its acquisition of the rights to adapt Nabil Farouk's novel Man of the Impossible into film and TV productions. The company has also acquired the rights to adapt Ibrahim El-Mahallawy's novel Dragunov that will be turned into a film soon. Previously, The Producers turned Mohamed Sadek's best-selling book Hepta into the highest-grossing romantic film in the history of Egyptian cinema, Hepta: The Last Lecture, as the film's revenues reached more than 26 million EGP.

Saudi feminist novelist Noor Abdulmajeed was the Editor-in-Chief of Mada Magazine in Saudi Arabia for two years, and an assistant editor at the Rotana Magazine. Many of her successful novels and anthologies got published, including her anthology W A'adat Cinderella Hafeyat Al Qadamayn (Cinderella Returned Barefooted), the novels Al Herman El Kabeer (The Great Deprivation) and Nesaa Wa Laken (They Are Women, but...), in addition to the novel that turned into a successful TV series of the same name in 2015, Oreed Rajolan (I Need a Man) starring Dhafer L'Abidine and Eyad Nassar.

Preparing for Turning It into a 60-episode TV Series
The Producers Acquires the Adaptation Rights to Writer Noor Abdulmajeed's Duology Ana Shahira and Ana El Kha'en
Cairo, Egypt | Monday - 19 September, 2016:
Determined to carry on with its plan turning successful Arab literary works into films and TV series, Producer and Managing Director of The Producers, Hani Osama, revealed that the company has acquired the TV adaptation rights to writer Noor Abdulmajeed's duology Ana Shahira and Ana El Khayen, which will be turned into a 60-episode TV series split into two seasons.

Talking about this step, Osama said, "Once again we are about to uncover the great potential in one of the many successful literary works. Noor Abdulmajeed's novel is quite exceptional and that makes of it an attractive material to be turned into a remarkable TV drama. By making it into two seasons, viewers will be able to enjoy an unusual experience throughout 60 episodes".

Ana Shahira and Ana El Kha'en is a novel-duology written by author Noor Abdulmajeed and published by Al Dar Al Masriah Al Lubnaniah in 2013 in two separate books. Abdulmajeed recounts the story from the perspectives of its two main characters, Shahira and Raouf, each in a separate book. The first book presents the story as experienced by Shahira, and the second book is from Raouf's, her partner, point of view. Infidelity and revenge make up the central idea of the story, so after Raouf has betrayed Shahira, she decides to avenge her dignity by doing the same, out of wrath, but it turns ugly for both of them.

This comes after The Producers has announced its acquisition of the rights to adapt Nabil Farouk's novel Man of the Impossible into film and TV productions. The company has also acquired the rights to adapt Ibrahim El-Mahallawy's novel Dragunov that will be turned into a film soon. Previously, The Producers turned Mohamed Sadek's best-selling book Hepta into the highest-grossing romantic film in the history of Egyptian cinema, Hepta: The Last Lecture, as the film's revenues reached more than 25 million EGP.

Saudi feminist novelist Noor Abdulmajeed was the Editor-in-Chief of Mada Magazine in Saudi Arabia for two years, and an assistant editor at the Rotana Magazine. Many of her successful novels and anthologies got published, including her anthology W A'adat Cinderella Hafeyat Al Qadamayn (Cinderella Returned Barefooted), the novels Al Herman El Kabeer (The Great Deprivation) and Nesaa Wa Laken (They Are Women, but...), in addition to the novel that turned into a successful TV series of the same name in 2015, Oreed Rajolan (I Need a Man) starring Dhafer L'Abidine and Eyad Nassar.

Hepta, which means number seven in ancient Greek, takes the reader in a journey to the worn-out world of love, which was tackled by thousands of authors throughout the years. Despite the fact that love is a recurrent theme, almost everyone commits the same mistakes, goes through the same pains and gets entangled in the same dreams and hopes. Sadek, in his novel, tracks the seven stages of love namely; the beginning, the encounter, the relationship bond, the wakefulness, the truth, which is followed by the decision, and then the ending, or the "Hepta" stage.

Hepta is Mohamed Sadek's third novel, preceded by Taha the Stranger, and A few Hours One Day. Hepta was released in the beginning of 2014 by Rewaq Publishing and was a huge success topping the best-seller lists at Shorouk Bookstores for several weeks. It was also the most read novel among Goodreads.com users during June 2014 in several Arab countries and more than 36 editions of the book have been published since its release.

The Mother-Daughter Scene Stirs Controversy on Social Media Platforms
Warda Breaks the Egyptian Box Office Records
Cairo, Egypt | Sunday- 16 November, 2014:
After breaking the box office records with an average score of 100,000 EGP revenues per day, the spine-chilling thriller Warda has landed as the highest-grossing film in the quietest season in Egyptian theatres. The film has successfully stolen the limelight since its release and racked up nearly half a million EGP. Although Warda was not released during a high film season and unfolds paranormal events with a no-star cast, the film's revenues stand out as a testimony to its success.

Screened across 9 governorates, Warda has stirred a wave of controversy on social media platforms for its unprecedented subject, which has never been traced in Egyptian cinema. The audiences were struck by the film's pre-final scene ending which was echoed in their comments on the social media platforms. Within less than a month, Warda's official Facebook page has reached 117,000 fans, placing it among the top 5 fastest-growing entertainment pages in Egypt, and comments increased to more than 50,000.

Through its representatives, who were present in theatres during the weekend, MAD Solutions, the distributor of the film, examined and categorized the audience. The statistics revealed that Warda has attracted in the majority and mostly females and that more than two -thirds of the audience was composed of young people under 30.

Released on Thursday in 27 screens across Cairo and other governorates, Warda premiered at 07:00 pm Cairo time and witnessed a jam-packed turnout that several screening venues posted the 'full house' sign outside their ticket offices.

The company also indicated that females formed 65% of the film's audience in most of the screenings. Having a female as the lead character in Warda, was not the main reason behind this, as displayed in the marketing campaign, the growing interaction of the fans illustrated that females had a more burgeoning response to the film's thrilling atmosphere than males.

MAD Solutions also explained that this comes as a result of the film's mysterious nature and the audiences' interest to gauge the film's storyline prior to its release as well as their willingness to accept such kind of films.

Statistics also showed that more than two-thirds of the audience who went to see Warda were young people under the age of 30. Most of them belonged to the mid to late 20s age bracket and widely attended in groups. It was also noticed that the positive reviews of the audience and the word-of-mouth recommendations have widely encouraged film goers to attend the film screenings.

Directed by Hadi El Bagoury and written by Mohamed Hefzy, Warda is produced by The Producers and Film Clinic, in co-production with Aroma Pictures.

The film traces a video blogger who returns to his Egyptian countryside home to document and investigate strange happenings that have been disturbing his family since the death of his father. The film is created in the Found-Footage style, a growing independent genre of filmmaking where all or an essential part of a film depends on discovered video recordings, often left behind by missing or dead protagonists.
