As you know, while America has Netflix, Amazon and many other streaming services, Scandinavia has its Viaplay, France, Germany and Spain have their own streamers, Australia has Stan and Foxtel, Russia has a number of their own too and so does Southern America, and I think I mentioned a couple of times that there is also a panArabic streamer Shahid which covers most of the Muslim countries. Shahid has now launched their massively ambitious epic TV series SLAVE MARKET which has an international cast, has been shot in more than 100 different locations depicting Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe, with 70 regular cast members and more than 17,000 extras and almost 5,000 costumes done for the show!
NEW SERIES SLAVE MARKETAN INTERNATIONAL CAST
penned by Kuwaiti writer, Heba Mashari Hamada, and directed by the award-winning Tunisian director, Lassaad Oueslati, narrates five stories taking place simultaneously in different parts of the world. Set in the 1900s, whilst these stories may differ in detail, they all intersect at the fate of each story’s protagonist when they all fall into slavery. The first season of the drama follows the journey of five main characters – Rahma (Arabian Peninsula), Colonel Morton (and his English family living in Jeddah), Lavani (Mumbai), Quako and Natanda (Eastern Africa), and Khorshid’s family (European Caucasus) – up to the point they all end up at the slave market.
Fayez Bin Jurays, Dian Biemans, Apeksha Porwal, Al Anoud Saud, Chris J. Gordon, Georgia Butt, Nick Cornwall, Oscar Foronda, and Janique Charles lead the cast of this series set in the 1900s, with nine episodes following five stories taking place simultaneously in different parts of the world, which all intersect when each of the main characters falls into slavery. Although it has been released just a week ago, January 13th, the series has already entered top ten lists of the most streamed programmes in Arabic world.
