Shomali previously revealed her vision for the new show as she admitted it was her 'long life dream project', ''As a teenager, I felt the lack of shows that talked about young girls at that age. There wasn’t something that I could relate to that also entertained me. Today, there is still limited content directed at young people, particularly girls. That’s how the idea of creating a show that young girls around the world would relate to was born.'' she said.
The Jordanian producer also wanted to 'shed light on the challenges that young women face in high school'.
''The one thing I always found lacking in most shows that talk about women is the female perception on their issues. So I gathered around a brilliant team of women to work on developing and executing the show’s creative vision. Together, we envisioned and built the elements of the Al Rawabi world, starting from the characters, set design, colors, lighting and even the music.'' she stated.
Al Rawabi School For Girls will be available on Netflix on the 12th of August.
The show will be released in 190 countries around the world and available in over 32 languages.
The series is the second Arabic Original show from the streaming giant, the first being ‘Jinn’ in 2019.
