A second season of the TV series was made after the success of its first season. In 2014, the company produced the TV series Tawq Al Asphalt, a Bedouin, historic drama series inspired by Shakespeare's Hamlet that shows the lives of Bedouin tribes in the early 20th century and the conflicts that took place between them over power, grazing lands and honor. The TV series aired during Ramadan 2014 on Abu Dhabi One.
