Mahmoud El Guindi,
Spoiler Alert!!! This series has it all;the best actors,the best director,the best composer and the best of almost everything else. It's the story of Ebtessam El Bostany ,the successful TV hostess on a popular TV station.She has a perfect life.She has a great job, wonderful kids(a boy and two girls),a loving husband and on top of that,she's extremely rich.Her picture-perfect life ,however,is tainted with a mysterious past.We know that her two daughters are from a previous marriage and we presumably know that the father is dead........until,it turns out he's not!!!The thing is,that's what she thought,as well.Ebtessam's world is literally turned upside down.The question of "Who am i really married to?" plagues her conscience and her thoughts for the rest of the series.There are also side stories of the girls' love lives(one is a ballerina and the other a tourguide) and the boy's difficulties with teenage life. The soundtrack was composed by Egypt's most prominent composer,Omar Khayrat. This series had a lot going for it and combined with its rivetting storyline, it was a remarkable success.
