‘Finding Ola’ is a remake of the 2010 Arabic show, I Want to Get Married. Good thing is, according to the makers, you do not need to watch the original show for you to follow the story of  Finding Ola.

Hend Sabry serves not just as the lead star of the show but also the Executive Producer of Finding Ola through her company Salam Prod. The show is composed of an A-list team as the characters are inspired by the great writer, Ghada AbdelalAal, scripted by Maha Alwazir and Ghada AbdelAal, and directed by Hadi El Bagoury.

When Sabry was asked what’s her vision of the show was, she said, As a producer I wanted this show to be as universal as possible and as relatable as possible to many civilizations and cultures around the world. Netflix is truly global. So if I hear about even just one Korean or Japanese person who goes on their Netflix, watches ‘Finding Ola’ and says: ‘That’s exactly like us!,’ then I will be super happy. That’s what a breakthrough is to me.”
