The series is directed by the talented Bassem Al Salka who was one of the first directors to present short series in the Arab world through “Al-Ameed”. Wathiqat Sharaf is a short work format of 10 episodes, which have recently become a very attractive viewing material to Arab viewers. For the first time in the Arab region, “Wathiqat Sharaf” is filmed using the highest available quality in the industry, the 6K technology.
“Wathiqat Sharaf” illustrates the story of four friends who belong to different environments and who signed a “document of honor” pledging loyalty and devotion to each other. The pact goes unheeded at their first real test and their friendship turns into a bloody conflict triggered by money and women.
“We are excited to announce the release of Wathiqat Sharaf. It is a part of our strategy to expand our Share of Voice in the Arabic original production’s pie. The scenario is full of suspense and unexpected events and the selection of the cast was very relevant to the roles in the series.

There is strong competition between global platforms and production houses, everyone aims to attract viewers to watch their content. Therefore, we are keen to provide the best local dramas and the most amazing viewing experience to our audience.” Nadine Samra, CBO – Weyyak for the Middle East, and North Africa.
