Shankaboot: World’s first Arabic Web Drama Series

The Lebanese web series, Shankaboot, takes the viewer into the heart of modern life Beirut through the eyes of 15-year-old delivery boy Suleiman. The series presents Beirut and Lebanese life in a very realistic way. The actors in the show have little or no acting experience, making the show seem even more realistic. Nothing like it has ever been done before in the Arab world. It recently won the International Digital Emmy Award. The soundtrack is created by famous Lebanese rapper, Rayess Bek. The interesting thing about this show is the way it uses Facebook and twitter to make it very interactive with its viewers. Secrets and insights are revealed on the website, making it almost a must for followers to be connected. Check out the trailer below and link to the website:
