Your next binge-worthy series has just landed on Netflix: an 18-part procedural drama set in Abu Dhabi. Justice (Qalb Al Adala) follows a passionate young lawyer, Farah, played by Fatima Al Taei, who resists the pressure to join her father's firm, and instead decides to go out on her own as a defense attorney, pushing the legal and cultural envelope in the process.



The Emirati legal drama, shot and produced in Abu Dhabi by Image Nation and Beelink Productions, was created by Oscar nominee Walter Parkes (He Named Me Malala) and Emmy award-winning producer William Finkelstein, who worked on the original NBC series on which this is based, LA Law.

Directed by Ahmed Khaled, it is based on real cases from the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, which partnered on the production to ensure authenticity, and is being streamed with subtitles in 20 different languages.

The show originally premiered back in September 2017 on OSN Ya Hala Al Oula HD. Each episode is approximately 40-minutes long.

Press play to watch lead actress Fatima Al Taei talk about her role on the show.
