You can now watch Emirati legal drama 'Justice' on Netflix
We've been dying for some local content on Netflix and a new series to binge watch— and now we've found one. The Emirati legal TV drama series 'Justice' is now available on the streaming giant.
The drama, which is shot in Abu Dhabi, is centred around an ambitious lawyer Farah who returns home to the UAE after having obtained a law degree in the US to find that her father, one of the UAE’s top lawyers, has big plans for her career at his prestigious firm.
Farah, however, has other plans to succeed on her own, and does so while pushing legal and cultural boundaries in the process.
In 2016, Garin described Justice as “LA Law meets Dallas in Abu Dhabi”, and said it is a “unique opportunity to see how everyday Arabs live their lives [and] how the court system works”.
The series is produced by Abu Dhabi film studio Image Nation and Beelink Productions. It first aired on OSN in September 2017 after a deal with distributor IM Global Television for the show’s Middle East premiere rights.
A legal family drama, it is thought to be the most expensive Emirati TV production ever staged, according to Image Nation CEO Michael Garin, and is based on real-life cases from the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, which partnered on the production for authenticity.
It was created by Oscar nominee Walter Parkes and Emmy Award winning producer William Finkelstein. It’s directed by Ahmed Khaled and stars Fatima Al Taei, Mansoor Al Feeli, Mohamed Alamiri, and Malak Al Khalidi.
