DMTV brings new version of Lebanese show
Dubai, October 8, 2013
DMTV, the Arab world’s first channel dedicated to Distinguished Men, is expanding its programming offering with a brand new version of the popular Lebanese programme Min Al Akher, featuring new content created especially for Gulf viewers.
Hosted by Abdullah Al Hureiby from the UAE, Min Al Akher will focus on the Gulf region with current affairs and events highlighting the region’s diverse culture, customs and traditions.
The weekly show will feature Al Hureiby and six regular co-hosts in an entertaining and friendly setting where they interview guests and discuss diverse cultural, artistic, economic and social topics each week.
The new series guarantees viewers lots of fun, thanks to the youthful chemistry of the cast, who will share their personal opinions and views through educational and humorous segments and lively discussions.
DMTV managing director Samar Sayegh said: "As a part of our mission to continually offer engaging programming while encouraging regional talent, we decided to take the original Min Al Akher series outside of Lebanon and share with viewers of the Mena and the Gulf. In today’s fragmented societies, everyone is unique in his or her local identity and global perspective."
"This is how the co-hosts were chosen; not to represent their countries but to show the unique dynamic personalities that exist within our societies today, especially in the UAE.
Dubai-headquartered channel broadcasts to the Middle East and the rest of the world, with a mission to consistently meet the needs of the aspiring Arab man, by offering well-rounded and engaging programming that meets the demands of his dynamic lifestyle.
“We are very proud to launch the Gulf version of Min Al Akher and to be the first TV channel that encourages regional talent by buying a format closer to home rather than always looking to the West.”
Joining Al Hureiby each week is a group of six outgoing professionals from different backgrounds, each bringing their own unique perspective and charm to the show. The hosts either agree, disagree or agree to disagree on the various topics presented throughout the show, said a statement from DMTV.
Min Al Akher’s co-hosts are Omar Bin Haidar (A young Emirati actor with a love for culture); Samira Kawas (A Lebanese producer and filmmaker); Karim Ghazal (An Egyptian entrepreneur living in Dubai); Farah Malhas (A Jordanian who studied in New York and loves controversy), Jamil Abu Wardeh (A stand up comedian from Palestine) and RanaAmoudi (Yemeni actress and model).
Working together each week they will present exciting segments such as: Public Figure; Success Story; 3aychin 3a Kayfoun; Jdid 3al Saha; and Bala Kate3 3an Hadithkoun, in addition to Video of the week; Picture of the week; MoukhtabarMoufid; Shi Gharib; and EkhirInjaz, the sttaement said.
The popular shows featuring on DMTV this season include: #Khaleeji; Ser El Mehni; Tayyara w Shattara; Tech Check; Radar; The Sopranos; Breaking Bad; Global Football; and GP Racing, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
