Egyptian stars Ahmed Malek and Huda El Mufti are set to reunite in the upcoming TV series “Matam Al Habib”.

The cast also includes Samy Maghawry, Entsar, Islam Ibrahim, and more.

Essam Abdelhamid directs from a screenplay by acclaimed scriptwriter Mariam Naoum.

The series is set to debut sometime later in 2024 on a VOD platform.

“Matam Al Habib” marks the fourth collaboration between Malek and El Mufti. They worked together on the 2021 TV series "Bimbo", the 2022 TV series "Tahqiq", and the 2023 epic historical film "Kira & El Gin".

The series also marks Malek's comeback to the small screen after two years of absence. He made his last appearance in the TV series "Tahqiq".

Ahmed Malek

Malek, born on September 29, 1995, got his first audition at the age of eight when his uncle took him to perform in a commercial.

In 2005, he landed his first role in the TV series "Ayamna el helwa" (Our Good Days). A few years later, he played a small role in "Mafish Fayda", starring Moustafa Amar and Basma.  Shortly after, Malek was tapped to portray the role of young Hassan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, in the "TV series El-Gamaah" (2010) (The Brotherhood), which is considered the then-15-year-old's first breakthrough role.

After the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, Malek disappeared for a short time to focus on political and revolutionary activism. However, when director Gamal Abdel Hameed offered him the role of a young Egyptian revolutionary activist in the TV series "Al-shaware'a al-khafiya" (The Backstreets) - starring famous actors Jamal Soliman, Layla Elwy, Samy El-Adl and Gihan Fadel - he could not resist.

In 2012, director Mohamed Sami offered Malek the role of Ahmed, a stammered teenage addict in his series "Ma'a Sabq Alesrar", who nominated him the following year to play the role of a troubled teen in his TV series "Hekayet Hayah".

Following Malek's impressive performance, renowned Egyptian director Sharif Arafah asked him to audition for a pivotal role in the sequel of "El-Gezirah" (2007).

In 2014, he returned for the sequel, which propelled him towards regional stardom in the Middle East after which he became one of the most successful and sought-after Egyptian actors of his generation.

Malek would later find international fame with roles in critically acclaimed films such as "Clash" (2016), "Sheikh Jackson" (2017), and "Leil Khargi" (2018) - all of which have been selected to represent Egypt in international film festivals and award circuits.
