The series is directed by Mansour and Written by Malek and lead actress Aline Lahoud. Tarek is composing the musical score. Malek said to us that his role in this series is one of his most challenging. We’ve known Malek in previous works like The Streets of Humiliation, The Teenagers, and Caramel. Malek said” This has been one of my favorite experiences because I get to collaborate with my brothers whom I trust to push me to my very best. I also can’t wait for the audience to look at what we have achieved.” The series that runs for 30 episodes has finished shooting and is now in the process of editing and will be released sometime next year on Lebanese channels.

Malek aspires to becoming a worldwide known actor, and already provided his profile details to specialized casting offices based in Los Angeles like Arab American Casting (A.A.C) which supports actors from the Middle East which have attached Malek for future film roles. Malek is not in a hurry for fame. He’s happy with the roles he embodies with love and craftsmanship; He desires to pursue the roles that help him show his talent, through which he can have an impact on the public, and draw the attention of directors and writers who would offer him complex roles to show his skills, thus giving him the opportunity to go from the Arab world and the region, to Hollywood and the world.
