This project marks the debut of Pakistani content on the international over-the-top (OTT) media service provider, bringing the country’s unique storytelling and vibrant acting talent to a wider global audience.
The project is set to be directed by the esteemed Momina Duraid, a veteran of the Pakistani television industry known for her knack for narrative and nuance.
The storyline for this inaugural Netflix series will revolve around the novel “Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo”, penned by the acclaimed novelist Farhat Ishtiaq. However, an official title for the series is yet to be announced.

This initiative represents a significant leap for the Pakistani drama and film industry. Pakistan’s creative entertainment industry hopes to reach new heights and create a lasting impact by offering homegrown content to the global audience.
