Postby bankska22 » Jan Sun 19, 2020 9:32 am

Netflix has announced its first Egyptian original series based on the best-selling books by late author Ahmed Khaled Tawfik, entitled Paranormal. Here’s a quick rundown for the series:

   Set in the 1960s, Paranormal depicts the adventures of Dr. Refaat Ismail, a single hematologist who finds himself faced with a series of supernatural events.

The series will be directed by Amr Salama, who is also co-producing and showrunning. Mohamed Hefzy is co-producing as well. We don’t have any casting news yet, but the info we do have sounds intriguing. Here’s what Salama had to say about directing the project:

   “I’m very excited about this project, It was my dream to adapt Paranormal of the late author Ahmed Khaled Tawfik and turn it into a drama since I ever wanted to be a filmmaker. I’m proud to present the books in a new light while still keeping the essence of Paranormal. I can’t wait to introduce these exciting stories to the Netflix public in 190 countries around the world,” said Salama.

That’s awesome the the series will be worked on by a lifelong fan. Have you read or heard of the Paranormal stories?
