New Saudi TV drama aims to counter Islamic State propaganda

SHARE:

In an effort to counter the sleek propaganda of the Islamic State (IS) group, a Saudi-owned television channel has launched a drama series portraying the harsh realities of life within the so-called caliphate.

The $10-million project - which will be beamed across the Arab world by satellite channel MBC - reflects the kingdom's self-appointed role at the forefront of the fight against extremism which was underlined during US president Donald Trump's visit in May.

"Black Crows" shows women and children living under the militants and is the first television drama to tackle subjects such as mass murder and rape, contrasting sharply with the idyll of heroism and holy war projected by IS on social media.

"The main audience we target, the most important and dangerous, are those who are prone to support and even join terrorist organisations," MBC spokesman Mazen Hayek told Reuters in an interview.

"Media is part of their [IS] offensive strategy. Thus media organisations have the right, actually the duty, to face such an offensive - which is well-funded and on the internet and social media - with this series," he said.

But actors and MBC have told local media that they have received online death threats from IS supporters because of the show.




MBC has increased security at its office around the region including Dubai after broadcasting of Black Crows show
