Mohammed Saeed Harib was just 19 years old when he wrote Freej, a six-page study book.
In 2003 the Emirati got his first big break after Freej was adopted by Media City, who translated it to the screen. The show, which features four elderly national ladies living in a rapidly evolving Dubai, premiered in 2006, a year after Lammtara Pictures was established to oversee its production. With the show’s success, many doors have opened for Harib. Last year, it was announced that Harib will contribute to the film adaptation of Gibran’s The Prophet.
