Comedian Ibrahim Nasr reveals his upcoming TV show 'Zakia Zakaria Raees El-Gomhoreya' (Zakia Zakaria, The President of the Republic) to debut next Ramadan. The show will draw upon the political events in contemporary Egypt. 

Nasr brings back Zakia Zakaria's run for the presidential elections; in each episode she deals with an issue that concerns the Egyptian public and tries to solve in her own funny and paritcular way.

Nasr states that the project is still in the writing stage with a range of new authors collaborating. He is hopeful that shooting will start in early June to allow sufficient time for editing before the show's debut.

The comedian has warned that Zakia Zakaria has gone through some modifications making her slightly different from the character the public grew to love, with more creativitiy and modernity thrown in. 

Zakaria will tackle the issues of remnants from Mubarak's regime, known as 'faloul', political isolation, and the counter-revolution in her own way.
