Netflix has released a legal drama set in the UAE
TV fans, listen up. Netflix has just released a new legal drama – and it's set in the UAE.
Qalb Al Adala, which translates to Justice, is now available to stream worldwide.
The show follows the life of a young and ambitious lawyer, Farah, who has returned back to the UAE after graduating from the US with a law degree.
Farah's father is one of the UAE's top lawyers and wants her to work for his firm.
But like any great drama, it's not as simple as that. Farah, who is played by Fatima Al Taei, has other plans. We won't say anymore...
The 18-episode show is the first Emirati series run on the global streaming platform. It's in Arabic, with subtitles available in 20 different languages.
The show was created by Oscar nominee Walter Parkes and Emmy award-winning producer William Finkelstein.
It originally premiered back in September 2017 on OSN Ya Hala Al Oula HD.
Ben Ross, chief content officer at Image Nation who produced the show alongside Beelink Productions, said in a statement: “This is a landmark series not just for Image Nation, but for Abu Dhabi and the whole UAE.
“Part of our mission is to continue to change perceptions about our region and we’re excited to showcase the region’s culture positively and authentically to audiences around the world.”
The series was produced in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, who advised on the plot and provided access to real local cases.
