في كل أسبوع يوم جمعة is the TV show you should be watching rn! I was very excited when I heard about it because it’s starring Menna Shalaby & Asser Yassin. We’ve seen the talented duo before in Bibo W Besheer, Torab El Mas and the VERY underrated short movie: Fork & Knife!
The series is an original Shahid production and an episode is released on their platform every Friday. Only three episodes are out and so far it’s been so exciting. It’s a crime/thriller type of thing which will definitely leave you in shock and waiting for the next episode!
Honestly, it’s a breath of fresh air compared to other Egyptian mosalsalat…Personally, I’m so glad to see a series not produced by Synergy lol. Fun fact: Amr Salama and Mohamed Hefzy are co-producing the show and as a fan of them both I knew they wouldn’t work on something not worth the watch.
The fact that Mohamed Shaker Khodeir is the director made me even more sure that I’d be in for a surprise (he’s known for لا تطفئ الشمس and جراند أوتيل).
As for the rest of the cast, WOW. Sawsan Badr, Abdelaziz Makhyoun, May El Ghety, Khaled Anwar, Ahmed Khaled Saleh, Mohamed Hatem, Sherif Salama, Arfa Abdel Rasoul and more. I really appreciate that even the actors that appear for a scene or two still have as much impact as Asser and Menna who are our main characters.
Last but not least, I need to show some appreciation to the soundtrack! From the first minute I was hooked by it and when the تتر started and I saw Hesham Nazih’s name I screamed internally! He’s a genius when it comes to composing and has worked on iconic movies (known for their music) like تيتو, الفيل الأزرق, إبراهيم الأبيض, تراب الماس, عن العشق و الهوى.
I could go on till tomorrow but you get my point. Now, start binge-watching and thank me later 😉
