Ramadan series enthusiasts (and really, who isn't?), there are now more reasons to be glued to our TVs and flipping channels to watch the series we love.

The channel, which will be called Saudi Broadcasting Corporation (SBC) it will replace the state "R" culture channel, the president of SBC, Dawood Al-Shoryan reportedly said.

The plan is to bring large-scale Arabic productions to viewers under one channel, in order to complement the $64 billion, the Saudi Arabian government is spending to turn Saudi into an entertainment hub in the region.

To promote the channel, they've brought in the big guns – aka Egyptian superstar, actor Adel Imam, who will star in a Ramadan series that will debut on SBC, called Awalem Khafeya (Invisible Worlds). Their stellar line up also includes the original series, Bedoon Filter (Without Filter), starring Saudi actor Abdullah Al-Sadhan. Another series called Share Chat, starring three prominent Arab actors, Hassan Usseiri, Fayes Al-Malky and Rashid Al-Shamrany, will also show according to Egypt Independent.
