Nefertiti.TV Comedy Series. Currently optioned by Big Talk Productions & in development at Channel 4.
Amrou is co-creator, co-writer, associate producer, and lead actor of Nefertiti.
In 1300 BC, Nefertiti was an elegant and decadent Egyptian queen. In 2016, she is an elegant and decadent drag queen, the alter ego of Amir, a second generation British-Egyptian living in London... at home with his strict Arab mother.
NEFERTITI is also the name of the comedy series that follows Amir and the scandalous double life he is forced to lead. It’s a comedy that’s rooted in pathos and emotional truth — think the tone of Fleabag mixed with the contemporary cultural criticism of Chewing Gum or Master of None and the gender politics of Transparent.
Blending traditional narrative with excerpts of Amir’s stand-up comedy set pieces and musical performances in drag, the result is the story of a unique personality that is also a wider tale of second generation immigrants finding their place in modern London.
