Netflix is bringing a brand new Arabic dramedy series to screens this September, with the launch of ‘The Cage’. The light-hearted Kuwaiti show stars several beloved Kuwaiti stars including Khaled Ameen, Hussain AlMahdi, Rawan Mahdi, Lamya Tareq, and Hessah AlNabhan, showcasing more stories from the Arab world to global audiences.
Khaled Ameen plays a social counselor who is working with a married couple, played by Hussain AlMahdi & Rawan Mahdi, to address their differences and better understand each other’s perspectives to save their marriage. While the counselor is helping them reconnect, he’s facing his struggles in his personal life, too.
Following the couple and the evolution of their relationship across 10 years, the 8-episode dramedy is a fresh take on tackling marital challenges in Arab drama, in a lighthearted and relatable way.
The Cage, which is produced by Abdullah Boushahri and directed by Jasem Almuhanna, will be available on the 23rd of September, only on Netflix.
The Cage is the next milestone in Netflix’s journey in the region as it continues to invest in amplifying the voices of more Arab storytellers. The Cage is just the beginning of Netflix series in Kuwait, with another high-profile project in the works that promises to deliver a fresh perspective, exciting twists and turns, and some beloved, familiar faces.
