The head of Egyptian TV, Medhat Zaki, has entrusted the young director Amr Abdeen with the direction of four seven-episode series scheduled to run next Ramadan. 

Abdeen told the London-based daily Al Sharq Al Awsat that he was happy to resume the direction responsibilities. 

He said there were four short series of seven episodes each. The episodes are separate but tackle the same issue in a humorous style. 

The first series is entitled Al A’yek costarring Wael Noor, Rajaa Al Jiddawi, Ulfat Imam and Mohammed Abdel Jawwad. The second series, scripted by Lenin Al Ramli, is entitled Al Mestahi (The Shy) and costars Khairiyyah Ahmed, Nelly Karim, Ena’m Salousah, Omar Al Hariri, Mohammed Al Difrawi, Madihah Hamdi and Ahmed Rizq. 

The third series is entitled Al Shuh and costars Yousef Daoud, Shireen and Mahmoud Qabeel, while the fourth is entitled Al Mumathelati (The Actor). They’re looking for actors for that one now -
