The Middle East has its own version of the popular long-running TV series “Desperate Housewives,” called Nesa’a Ha’erat. This Turkish soap opera is popular in Saudi Arabia, and while it is shot in Turkish, the voices are dubbed over in Arabic, as many english-speaking shows are as well. Airing on MBC4 in Saudi Arabia, this show, along with many other top-rated American shows, is marketed to women and young families. Other programming aired on MBC4 includes 30 Rock, Project Runway, Dr. Oz, The Doctors, Entertainment Tonight, Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife, and more. MBC (Middle East Broadcasting Company) has several other channels which include a movie channel called MBC MAX, MBC Action, and MBC 2. We also get more movies from the MBC Persia channel.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
