Prominent Egyptian actress Samira Ahmad is undergoing preparations for a grand television drama about the Egyptian January 25 Revolution. The drama is considered to be the first project that portrays the revolution on the small screen.

The leading roles in the drama will be shared by a number of actors, who are currently being nominated. Samira will play the role of one of the young men that took active parts in the protests and at the same time is wife to one of the political figures in the ruling party. The drama will be aired during the upcoming Ramadan season.
