Give Hulu’s Show ‘Ramy’ a Watch
The Hulu original series Ramy follows first-generation Egyptian-American Muslim Ramy who lives with his parents and younger sister in New Jersey. The show brings variety in representation with the lead being Muslim and Egyptian-American. We follow Ramy, played by comedian-actor Ramy Youssef, trying to figure out what constitutes a good Muslim and trying to find companionship. You see the stricter adherence of the older Muslim community to tradition, while the younger, Millennial generation takes more liberty and make their own interpretations of what being a Muslim means.

It was truly such an honor to work on #Ramy for my first TV casting job, and I am so thrilled it is receiving the press and praise it deserves! Thank you so much to @rosalie.joseph & @mialovesllamas_ for letting me join them in casting to help bring life and authenticity to this show which I have no doubt will change the cultural landscape and shift the conversation for Arab-Americans. All episodes of Ramy are out TOMORROW only on @hulu.
The perspectives sometimes shift to include those of his family. The natural, dimmer lighting of the show casts a slight drabness and haziness over the scenes, mimicking the confusion and cloudiness over Ramy’s own life while he searches for clarity.
Watch the show on Hulu for some soul-searching and hilariously awkward situations.
