Noor Dubai, the newly-launched UAE community television station, is showing the acclaimed epic series Abou Jaafar Al Mansour, starring Syrian actor Abbas al Nouri, for this Ramadan.
The series features the Abbasid Dynasty of the seventh century, following the trail of one of the most respected and feared caliphs as he establishes Baghdad and fights against the many threats to his throne.
“Noor Dubai’s programming ethos is deeply rooted in the framework of Islam, and reflects the traditions and history of the larger Arab world. Abou Jaafar Al Mansour will give viewers a rich insight into their heritage during the Holy Month,” said Nahla Al Fahed, head of RTV Projects at Arabian Television Network.
The series stars a number of Syrian and Jordanian actors, such as Hani Al Romani, Yasir Al-Masri, Abir Issa, and Nabil Al Mashini.
