Shahid VIP Lines Up Arab Sci-Fi Drama

Shahid VIP is introducing Hell’s Gate, a first-of-its-kind Arab sci-fi drama.

The story is set in Beirut in 2052, as Lebanon’s existing system (as we know it today) collapsed years ago following numerous conflicts and deadly pandemics. Now, running the country is a group of private investors/businesses—known as the Union State—and they’re not using the country for good. On the other side is Tawara, a revolutionary group aiming to defeat the baddies.

The upcoming Shahid Original series is set to be streamed exclusively on Shahid VIP.

Produced by Cedars Art Production (Sabbah Brothers), the series is directed by International Emmy Award winner Amin Dora. Lead writers are Elie Kayrouz, Fouad Arsanios and David Lteif, alongside script consultants Bassem Briesh and Said Serhan.
