Bethlehem - Ma'an - Palestinian television series "Shu Fi Ma Fi", produced by the Ma'an television network has attracted a high percentage of Palestinian viewers, and has been classified as one of the top Ramadan month broadcasts on the small screen this year.

According to a report published by "Al Ayyam" newspaper on Saturday, local websites, chambers of dialogue and discussion forums dealing with the analysis of the contents of the various special Ramadan series, the most popular among Palestinians has been the Syrian series, "Bab Al Harah", followed by the joint Syrian-Jordanian series "Ras Glis", while the Palestinian Series "Shu Fi Ma Fi" ranked third. Famed Arab series "Awlad Ash Shari'a" and "Khaled Ibn Al-Walid," ranked fourth and fifth respectively.

The report stated that the series "Shu Fi Ma Fi" scored particularly highly among the younger generation, as it discusses a number of community issues in a comedic manner. The series has achieved a higher number of viewers, compared with previous experiments in Palestinian television drama, and it is believed that the high quality of production might pave the way for Palestinian drama in the future.

The production of the series, filmed in Beit Sahour, outside Bethlehem, has received funding from the British government, and revolves around events at a University between the male and female dormitories and the cafeteria, where the key figures discover love, failure and tolerance, while never moving away from political and social criticism, yet presenting these more serious topics in a way which is accessible to a younger audience.
