Ahd Al Dam stars Bassel Khayyat, Nadine Tahseen Bek, Ali Mnaimne, Nada Abu Farahat and Fadi Abi Samra.
Writer and Director Bassim Al Salka’s new series, Al Ameed, has earned him tremendously positive feedback.

Directed by Mutaz Al Tony and written by Muhammad Salah Khattab, under the supervision of Fadi Abul Saoud, Al Leba blends comedy with adventure. The story focuses on two friends, Waseem and Mazo, who have been betting against each other since childhood.

Very soon after, though, a third party tempts them with a bet that would lead to a huge reward, eventually leading the friends into a downward spiral.
