First Season of Ground-Breaking Egyptian Series Now Online

The complete first season of The Weapon, Egypt's first Web Series, is now on YouTube. This is the first time the complete season (8 episodes) has been available in its entirety, uncensored, and with English subtitles. You can watch it here.

Here is the official synopsis: "An Egyptian Web Series centering on the battle between a masked vigilante called "The Hunter" and an organized syndicate of criminals sanctioned by the fascist ruling party. The story takes place in the not so distant future, where Egypt is going through a terrible war against an undefined enemy.

This controversial, action-packed series is the first of its kind, and has been praised for predicting the rise of 
"Black Bloc" in Egypt.

Produced by Independent Productions. Written and Directed by Ahmed Khalifa. Music by Machine Eat Man and The Room.

THE WEAPON is the first Egyptian Web Series in history, and the first Egyptian TV series to be added to THE WEB SERIES CHANNEL, the world's leading directory of the best TV programs from around the world.

I first wrote the outline of the story envisioning it as either a film or a novel. But at my brother's (and co-producer's) suggestion, I began to see that the story, which is epic and multi-faceted, could make a great, multi-season series. And since the response to the first season has been favorable, hopefully the second season will be coming out later this year.
