What happens when creative local talents take on reimagining international TV sensations?
Netflix is the undoubted hero of the past five years. Not just because they finally cemented what we all knew was a sheyaka booty call (Netflix 'n' Chill) but because they have consistently delivered original shows that prompt us to spend days in bed binge watching them with no chill but with pizza sauce smeared on our chins. Aside from their original content, the vast expanse of TV gems on the network mean we could pretty much spend the next six months doing exactly the above, and feel little to no shame.
So since the entire nation has taken up Netflix as a hobby, we decided to tap 15 Egyptian artists and task them with recreating the posters of their favourite shows on the digital service - either originals or old favourites they can now comfortable rewatch over and over. And over. And the results are awesome. Check them out below:
