What Are the Most Expensive TV Productions This Ramadan?

We took a peek behind the scenes to show you the five most expensive productions that hit our TV screens this Ramadan…

Everyone KNOWS that Ramadan shows get all the attention from TV producers, but have you ever wondered exactly how much? We took a peek behind the scenes to show you the five most expensive productions that hit our TV screens this Ramadan…



Starring Mostafa Shaaban, Lebleba, and Salah Abdullah, ‘Dayman A’mer’ is a social comedy that tackles Egypt’s educational system. With its lineup of on-screen veterans of classic Egyptian cinema, and Shaaban’s reintroduction into the Ramadan mosalsalat arena, it’s little wonder that this series tops the list.

It’s another Ramadan series starring controversial rapper and actor Mohamed Ramadan, and this time he’s teaming up with on-screen darling Dina El-Sherbiny as a married couple, who are suddenly forced to leave the country after the husband gets marked as a wanted man. Love him or hate him, adding Mohamed Ramadan on your already-impressive cast list doesn’t come cheap.

Based on the 1981 Adel Emam film ‘Al-Mashbouh’, ‘Touba’ features a star-studded cast including Amr Saad, Saba Mubarak, Intisar, and Hassan Abu Al-Roos. While the original film revolved around a thief who tries to leave his criminal life behind, the Ramadan series builds on his journey of repentance as his secret past swiftly catches up to him.

‘El A’edoon’ follows on from the events of the 2021 Ramadan series ‘Hagma Mortada 2’, and is inspired by the files of the Egyptian General Intelligence. The show features a line-up of silver screen favourites including Amir Karara and Amina Khalil. Having bought streaming licences on Shahid and invited Mohamed Mamdouh and Hani Ramzi - yes, he literally came out of retirement for this - on the cast, the show ended up costing 70 million Egyptian pounds.

Starring Menna Shalaby, this 15-episode late-comer follows the horrors that an electronic engineer witnesses after being forced to join a terrorist group. It just barely makes it on the list with its rich line-up of Egyptian and Arab stars, as well as frequent filming sessions between Egypt and Lebanon.
