After the release of the poster, which was met by a backlash, then claiming it was fake, then releasing another one which was also met by a backlash, the creators of the upcoming Ramadan series “El-Malek” decided to review the show.
According to AlHayah TV, United Media Services announced that they will have an urgent committee from a group of historical specialists and sociologists to review El-Malek’s scenario and have a professional opinion, even if that results in it not airing it next Ramadan.
Why was this not done from the start when it’s a series about history? No clue!
This decision came a day after the Royal Mummies Parade, which made almost all Egyptians patriotic.
The series “El-Malek” about King Ahmose is based on the novel “Thebes at War” by Naguib Mahfouz.
The series is starring Amr Youssef, Saba Mubarak, Reem Mostafa, and Maged Al Masry.
