Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Egyptian actor and writer Ahmed Amin is set to star in Paranormal, a supernatural drama set in 1960s Egypt.
Filming is scheduled to begin in November on the show, which is based on the late Ahmed Khaled Tawfik's books.
"Amin brings a level of authenticity and a powerful on screen presence that we felt was the ultimate fit for the portrayal of Dr. Refaat Ismail. With such a strong local cast paired with striking special effects, we can't wait to get production underway next month," Amr Salama -- show-runner, producer and director -- said in a press release.
This will be Netflix's first original Egyptian drama.
