Egypt’s ONTV Goes for Third Season of The Doors


ONTV, part of Egyptian Media Group, has ordered a third season of the factual reality show The Doors, based on a format from the Global Agency catalog.

The format, which is locally titled Closed Doors, is broadcast in late prime time on Saturday nights. The hybrid program blends real news footage (of a crime which was prominent on society’s agenda, wounded society’s conscience and triggered reactions) with drama, featuring actors who portray these events in the studio section.

Izzet Pinto, CEO of Global Agency, commented: “The Doors attracted huge interest in Egypt. We are proud of The Doors’ persistent achievements in the country. This goes way beyond our expectations and we are so happy to learn that social sharing of The Doors is far more than other shows in such a short period. It has already attracted many new buyers, we expect it will enter new markets soon.”
