O3 Productions & Image Nation Partner Up


MBC Group’s O3 Productions and Image Nation Abu Dhabi have entered into a partnership for film and TV production.

The first project under this new partnership is the adaptation of Ibraheem Abbas’ best-selling sci-fi novel HWJN, which is being made into an Arabic-language feature film. It will be co-produced and co-financed by both companies. 03 and Image Nation are also partnering on a TV spin-off of the feature, The Delusionists, as well as two further series.

Fadi Ismail, the group director of 03 Productions, said: “We are delighted with our collaboration with Image Nation Abu Dhabi, thus integrating our efforts, expertise and production vision, which will ultimately contribute to uplifting and enhancing the artistic direction and production value of Gulf dramas in general and Saudi Dramas in particular.”

Ismail added: “As we embark on this collaboration with Image Nation to create captivating storytelling, we are also confident that it will lead to state-of-the-art production values and a prelude to additional joint projects in the future, God willing.”

Ben Ross, the head of narrative film and television at Image Nation, commented: “The new strategic partnership between Image Nation and MBC is a further indication of our shared commitment to producing high-quality Arab-language film and television for the Arab world.

“This move reinforces Image Nation’s position as a valued production partner in the region and adds to our already robust slate of programs across film and television.”
