One of Dubai's busiest highways, Sheikh Zayed road, was closed between 5:30 am and 8:00 am on a recent Friday morning to film a Ramadan series dubbed Al Layla Al Thaniya Ba'ad Al Alf (The 2nd Night After 1000). Dubai's Location Approval Services department was responsible for making this possible.

The road was closed for two hours while a helicopter hovered overhead and a man rode a horse down the tunnel towards Dubai World Trade Centre.

Al Layla Al Thaniya Ba'ad Al Alf is a 30-episode series that revolves around old-fashioned characters in a modern setting. Starring in the series is prominent Syrian actor, Abed Fahad, who is also the writer and lead actor of the series. The programme will be broadcast this month during Ramadan on one of the regional channels.
