Egyptian actor Karim Abdel Aziz is collaborating with director Peter Mimi in a new TV series, which is set to screen in the Ramadan 2023 drama marathon.

The series is penned by Abdel Rahim Kamal and is a historical project that takes place in the 11th century.

Abdel Aziz and Mimi collaborated last Ramadan in the third season of the acclaimed TV series “El Ekhteyar” (The Choice).

About 200 stars participated in the series including Yasser Galal, Ahmed El Sakka, Ahmed Ezz, Khaled El Sawy, Mahmoud El-Bezzawy, Bayoumi Fouad, Sabry Fawwaz, and others.

“El Ekhteyar 3” also features Abdel Aziz reprising his role as Zakaria Younes from the previous part.

The new installment is scripted by Hany Sarhan and directed by Peter Mimi.

The series recounts for the first time the true events of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization’s brief rise to power in Egypt after the 2011 revolution and their overthrow. It also follows the most dangerous 96 hours in the history of the country.

Abdel Aziz will be seen next in the highly-anticipated film “Kira & El Gin”.

The film also stars Ahmed Ezz, Hend Sabry, Sayed Ragab, Asma Abul Yazeid, Ahmed Malek, Huda El Mufti, Aly Kassem, and others.

Abdel Aziz portrays a doctor called Ahmed Abdel Hay, who goes by the nickname Ahmed Kira, a real person who was present during the occupation.

During the events, he meets with Abdel Qader Shehata Al-Gin (Ezz) and they become close friends and decide to team up against the British occupation.

The film is written by Ahmed Mourad, directed by Marwan Hamed, and produced by the Synergy Production company.

It is based on 2014’s Egyptian historical fiction novel “1919” by Mourad.

The film is a thought-provoking, fast-paced, information-packed historical fiction set to the actual events of a significant era in Egypt’s history.

It recounts the life of Egyptians during the British occupation of Egypt from 1919 to 1924 and follows their resistance against the occupation.

The film also depicted the role of the Egyptian uprising through the lives of perse characters that include famous and obscure historical figures as well as fictional characters.

Kira & El Gin hits theaters on June 30.
