CAIRO – 14 November 2017: The Social Services and Development Authority in Ain Shams University are organizing a seminar about family TV series ‘Yawmyat Wanis’ (Wanis’s Diary) on Tuesday.
This comes as part of the ongoing Arts and Culture Season held each year as the university. The seminar will be led by the actual cast of ‘Awlad Wanis’ including Fady Khafaga, Sameh Safwat, Hoda Hani, and Reem Ahmed.
Stars of the famous TV series that featured renowned actor Mohamed Sobhy as the protagonist, will be discussing their experience in being part of the show that was produced throughout eight seasons. They’ll also discuss future works and upcoming projects.
The Egyptian series was first released in 1994 revolving around a family man who seeks to raise his three children to be well-mannered and educated members of society only to discover that citizens of Egyptian society feature several defects and flaws that are in need of reform.
Growing widely popular across Egyptian citizens and influenced growing generations in the past two decades, the show was also recreated into a theatrical performance starring the same cast including the late Soaad Nasr who played Wanis’s wife.
The sixth season of the show has been massively changed due to the death of Nasr who also played the role of the children’s mother. The last season of the show ‘Wanis and his Grandchildren’ was dedicated to experiencing the new changes in society following the 25th of January revolution.
