Talkative puppet Abla Fahita returns to Netflix on March 15, with the platform releasing a promotional video for the upcoming comedy series “Abla Fahita: Drama Queen”.
Starring Abla Fahita front and center, it also involves her children and Caro and Boody. It co-stars Basem Samra, Donia Maher, Zeina Mansour, Rehab Hussein, and Osama Abdallah.
The action-packed comedic drama will consist of six episodes directed by Khaled Marei and written by Mohamed al-Gamal, George Azmy, Dina Maher, and Mahmoud Ezzat.
This time, Fahita finds herself an outlaw and is forced to separate from her two children. With everything at stake, the fun-sized starlet will not hesitate to do what it takes to reunite with her family.
The series, Fahita’s first ever drama, shows the puppet’s more “human side” in an action-packed comedy adventure.
The Fahita puppet character made her debut on Youtube, where she introduced her puppet “family” in a series of comedic videos that went viral on social media at the time.
Later in 2014, Fahita solidified her media career after launching a TV Show on CBC Channel called “Abla Fahita live from the Duplex.” The show followed on Fahita as she interviewed various celebrities, including Hany Shaker, Mahmoud al-Eissely, Fifi Abdou, Hala Sarhan, Dhafer L’Abidine, Hamada Hellal, and Rania Youssef, among others.
The show was known for its dark humor and biting sarcasm, with Fahita commenting on various topics in Egypt – occasionally getting the puppet into hot water.
Fahita is also known for collaborating with prominent Egypt composer Hassann al-Shfei, who appeared with her in a video clip that went viral, garnering more than 21 million views on YouTube.
The puppet’s debut on Netflix will be the second Egyptian series to be broadcasted on the streaming giant, following Mohamed Hefzy and Amr Salama’s “Paranormal”.
