Synergy and Aroma, under the auspices of the United Media Services Company, headed by businessman Tamer Morsi, have mapped out for TV series “The King”. Youssef will play king Ahmose I, who chased and removed the Hyksos from the Nile Delta.


The series, starring a large A-list cast, is adopted from “Thebes at War“,  an early novel by international writer Naguib Mahfouz.



 “The King” will be one of the largest and most important productions for Synergy and Aroma for Ramadan 2021 drama marathon, as it features wars, horses, costumes, and decorations,” producer Tamer Mortada, representing Aroma, said. It is written by Mohamed, Khaled and Sherine Diab. The series is directed by Hussein Al-Manbawi.


On the other hand, Youssef will start shooting early September his upcoming horror film “El Tahweeda” (the Lullaby), which will be his first take on the genre.


Egyptian actress Dina El Sherbiny is set to play the female lead in the film, which will be directed by Tarek Al Eryan.

“El Tahweeda” witnesses the third cooperation between Youssef and Al Eryan. They collaborated for the first time in the 2015 film “Welad Rezk”, and in its second part “Welad Rezk 2” in 2019.
