The implausibly-named Distinguished Men Television (DMTV) is expanding its programming offering with a brand new version of the popular Lebanese programme Min Al Akher, featuring new content created especially for Gulf viewers.
Hosted by Abdullah Al Hureiby from the UAE, Min Al Akher will focus on the Gulf region with current affairs and events highlighting the region’s diverse culture, customs and traditions.
The weekly show will feature Al Hureiby and six regular co-hosts in an entertaining and friendly setting where they interview guests and discuss diverse cultural, artistic, economic and social topics each week. The new series guarantees viewers will be entertained by the fun, youthful chemistry of the cast, who will share their personal opinions and views through educational and humorous segments and lively discussions.
DMTV Managing Director Samar Sayegh said that: “As a part of our mission to continually offer engaging programming while encouraging regional talent, we decided to take the original Min Al Akher series outside of Lebanon and share with viewers of the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf. In today’s fragmented societies, everyone is unique in his or her local identity and global perspective. This is how the co-hosts were chosen; not to represent their countries but to show the unique dynamic personalities that exist within our societies today, especially in the UAE.
“We are very proud to launch the Gulf version of Min Al Akher and to be the first TV channel that encourages regional talent by buying a format closer to home rather than always looking to the West.”
Joining Al Hureiby each week is a group of six outgoing professionals from different backgrounds, each bringing their own unique perspective and charm to the show. They hosts either agree, disagree or agree to disagree on the various topics presented throughout the show.
Min Al Akher’s co-hosts are Omar Bin Haidar, also from the UAE; Samira Kawas from Lebanon; Karim Ghazal from Egypt; Farah Malhas from Jordan; Jamil Abu Wardeh from Palestine and RanaAmoudi from Yemen.
Working together each week they will present exciting segments such as: Public Figure; Success Story; 3aychin 3a Kayfoun; Jdid 3al Saha; and Bala Kate3 3an Hadithkoun, in addition to Video of the week; Picture of the week; MoukhtabarMoufid; Shi Gharib; and EkhirInjaz.
