Netflix has launched a UAE-based legal drama titled ‘Justice’. The series has been produced by Abu Dhabi studio Image Nation and Beelink Productions and is available to watch worldwide.
The series, which first aired on OSN in September 2017, is based on real-life cases from the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, which was a production partner in the project.
Reportedly the most expensive UAE TV production ever, Justice (Qalb Al Adala) centres on an ambitious and passionate young lawyer named Farah, who has just returned after completing law in the US.
The series was created by Oscar nominee Walter Parkes and Emmy award-winning producer William Finkelstein. Directed by Ahmed Khaled, Justice stars Fatima Al Taei, Mansoor Al Feeli, Mohamed Alamiri, and Malak Al Khalidi.
Speaking about the series, 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.”
Netflix is aiming to increase its Arabic programming, with production underway on its first Arabic original, a supernatural teenage drama called Jinn.
