Pay-TV platform OSN is set to deliver the Middle East premier of Emirati legal drama Qalb Al Adala (Justice), following a deal with distributor IM Global Television.

OSN Logo 11 Sept 2017The Arabic drama, shot in Abu Dhabi, centres on an ambitious and passionate young lawyer called Farah who has just returned home after gaining a law degree in the US. The show, produced in Abu Dhabi by Image Nation and Beelink Productions, was created by Oscar nominee Walter Parkes and Emmy award winning producer William Finkelstein. It is reported to be the most expensive Emirati TV series ever produced.

Directed by Ahmed Khaled, Justice stars Fatima Al Taei, Mansoor Al Feeli, Mohamed Alamiri and Malak Al Khalidi. It is based on real cases from the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, which partnered on the production to ensure authenticity.

Dr Salah Khamis Al Junaibi, director of corporate communication and international cooperation at Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, said: “The participation of the judicial department in the production of Justice was to educate UAE audiences about the legal system and spread awareness about our efforts through non-traditional avenues. We are hoping to teach our rules and regulations through a simple method that will reach all walks of life in the UAE and contribute to the effective consolidation of social security in Abu Dhabi.”

Image Nation CEO Michael Garin has described the series as “LA Law meets Dallas in Abu Dhabi”. Emad Morcos, chief content officer at OSN, added: “Regional content is hugely sought after and this recent deal with IM Global Television and Image Nation will see us adding to our premium Arabic entertainment choices.”
