Trouble in paradise! Will Durra's show ever see the light at the end of the tunnel?
What is it with controversial director Enas Al Dughaidi's TV drama “Asr Al Hareem” (The Era of Women) that keeps it on the postponement line?
According to the series' production company owner Hisham Shabaan, it's money, baby!
Forgetting that they're a team, Hisham has decided all on his own to postpone the production for the second time around!
He said that this project is a huge one with an equally huge budget, which he simply cannot afford at the moment.
But the one person who was more on fire than Enas was scenarist Mustafa Muharram, according to Elaph news.
Good-guy-Mustafa has already delivered on his part, which is why he's now threatened to pull the script from under them and offer it to a more “serious” company, as this has already cost him some big bucks!
Oh, you're in the hot seat now, Hisham!
Enas was on the same page as Mustafa, who suggested they speak to a different production company as well. The two are hoping to release the show in Ramadan 2014.
The show will star Tunisian actress Durra, who has starred in the Ramadan 2013 drama "Mazaj Al Khair" (Good Mood), as the fearless dancer 'Rumana.'
Will this intriguing show ever see the light at the end of the tunnel?
