How is a Drama series created for Ramadan different than any other Series? 

Time constraints and funding constraints are the two main factors Ramadan producers face. Which is more manageable?

Ramadan Drama is typically 30 episodes. Are there any indicators in the market for changing this trend? Are broadcasters open to shorter/ longer series that can accommodate a good story?

Given that approximately 30% of linear ad spend happens during Ramadan, How is the gradual shift to Digital viewing affecting Ramadan Drama producers? Are your target buyers different? Is there competition between platforms?
