Netflix has finally begun work on its first fiction series from Jordan titled Jinn. Filming began in Amman, the capital of the country, on Monday August 13.
The Brazilians had 3% and India has been spoiled recently with Sacred Games so it seems it is time for Arab countries to get their own Netflix series.
At the crossroads between teen drama and fantasy series, Jinn will focus on a group of teenagers whose relationships will be severely tested when supernatural forces start to interfere with their daily lives. The heroine of the show is Mira, a rebellious schoolgirl devastated by the death of her mother who finds comfort in the arms of Keras. But the boy turns out to be a jinn, a supernatural creature from Arab mythology.
The first season of Jinn will feature six episodes, with Mir-Jean Bou Chaaya (Very Big Shot) in the role of showrunner. The series was commissioned several months after analysts noticed that the lack of local and Arab-language productions was hindering the development of Netflix in the Middle East.
Netflix is serious about dominating the world yo!
