MBC Studios has officially confirmed that Samar Akrouk will succeed the departing Christina Wayne as Managing Director. Deadline recently revealed Wayne was leaving her Managing Director post at the Middle Eastern content giant after 15 months, as she was unable to move to Saudi Arabia full time.

Today, Riyadh-based MBC Group confirmed veteran staffer Akrouk as Managing Director. She will also retain her role as Director of Production for the wider MBC group.

Akrouk has spent nearly three decades at MBC, most recently overseeing production on all non-scripted productions for MBC TV channels, streamer Shahid and social media.

This includes local adaptations of Idol, Project Runway, Top Chef, The Voice and X Factor. She also headed the team that produced Arab musical film Sukkar, which was a box office hit.
