Classified by Ali F. Mostafa 

is a new web series exclusive to directed by Ali F Mostafa that will premiere online on 28th September and will run till 26th October. 

The events in this five episode action drama is centered around a phone call from an anonymous person that leads to a chain of dangerous events. 

Webisodes aren't a common format in this region. The only other web series from this region that I am aware of is Shankaboot which won an International Digital Emmy® Award earlier this year. (Shankaboot is the world’s first Arabic web-series that takes us into the heart of Beirut street life through the eyes of Suleiman, a 15 year old delivery boy).

I'm very interested to see the reactions to Classified (Ali F. Mostafa's last project was the feature film City of Life). Here's the trailer to Classified and you can visit to see the countdown leading to the premiere of the show.
