Hijab wearing actress returns to small screen

"The Emotions of an Educated Area"

From Al Bawaba:
Egyptian actress Hannan Turn has given her initial approval to star in the new television drama series “Awatif Mantika Ta’lemieh” (The emotions of an educated area), scheduled to be aired during Ramadan. The actress had made her decision after turning down and postponing other projects, in particular nominations for a number of films, which Hannan felt conflicted (!) with her wearing the Hijab, Islamic Headdress.

The new drama falls into a comical atmosphere and each episode lasts up to 20 minutes, but is not considered a sitcom.
No doubt sitcoms are haraam.

Better title IMO: "My Mother The Sheet."
