Netflix Picks Up Global Rights To Middle Eastern ‘LA Law’-Style Legal Drama ‘Justice’


Netflix has picked up its first show from the UAE: LA Law-style legal drama Justice.

The SVOD service has acquired the worldwide rights to the series, which was produced by Image Nation and Beelink Productions for pay-TV platform OSN, from IM Global Television.

This comes after Deadline named the show, known locally as Qalb Al Adala, as one of its shows to watch out for in 2018.

The legal drama was created by LA Law and NYPD Blue’s William Finkelstein and He Named Me Malala producer Walter Parkes. It follows real cases from the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department and follows Farah, an ambitious and passionate young lawyer who has just returned from the U.S. after having attained a law degree but is determined to succeed on her own despite her father being one of the UAE’s top lawyers.

The series stars Fatima Al Taei, Mansoor Al Feeli, Mohamed Alamiri, and Malak Al Khalidi.

Ben Ross, Chief Content Officer at Image Nation, said, “Image Nation is delighted to have Netflix onboard to bring Qalb Al Adala to global audiences. This is a landmark series not just for Image Nation, but for Abu Dhabi and the whole UAE. Part of our mission is to continue to change perceptions about our region and we’re excited to showcase the region’s culture positively and authentically to audiences around the world.”
