Egyptian actress Nelly Karim has shared an update about her new TV series for the Ramadan 2023 drama marathon.
Karim is set to collaborate with director Mohamed El Adl, known as Mando, and screenwriter Medhat El Adl in the upcoming series.
The actress noted that she will not star in a sad series in the upcoming Ramadan 2023 drama marathon.
“I will present a Sa’idi series — a project set in Upper Egypt—for the first time. This will require some preparations and work on the character to present a convincing work that respects the mind of the viewers,” she said in a statement.
Karim participated last Ramadan in the social drama TV series “Faten Amal Harby“.
It also starred Fadia Abdel Ghany, Mohamed Al-Tagy, Wafaa Amer, Sherif Salama, Mohamed Tharwat, Mohamed El Sharnouby, and others.
The series is scripted by writer and journalist Ibrahim Eissa and directed by Mando.
The series also features Karim’s husband Hisham Ashour and rising actor Tayam Amar.
The project witnesses Karim and Ashour’s first acting project.
Ashour is set to play the role of Rose’s husband and a detective who takes on cases and helps her in the investigations.
The series consists of 12 episodes and is set to debut on the “Shahid VIP” streaming platform.
“Rose and Layla” was written by British author and screenwriter Chris Cole and directed by British filmmaker Adrian Shergold.
The series is a blend of genres that range from black comedy, action, suspense, and adventure.
“Rose and Layla” is centered around two investigators who are hired to stop a major bank fraud from happening.
The series marks the second collaboration between the actresses after the 2014 TV series “Saraya Abdeen”.
