Following the success of 2016’s Ramadan season, O3 Productions is preparing to launch its first series of 2017 - the Saudi series "Al Asoof". Saudi Arabian star Nasser Al Qasabi is expected to start filming the first scenes during September of this year, alongside a cast of many other Saudi stars. The series is about the life of a Saudi family throughout a period starting in the seventies and continuing through to the present day. This social drama sheds light on the main events that affected Saudi society as a whole during this time. It is worth noting that late writer Dr. Abdul Rahman Al-Wabli penned the series. It will air for two seasons, although additional seasons may follow. "Al Asoof” is viewed as a major drama production, and has required significant preparations to be made before starting to film in the UAE.
