CEO

Media Zone Authority’s twofour54 — set up in 2008, named after Abu Dhabi’s geographical coordinates and now comprising some 450 entertainment companies — keeps gaining traction, most recently co-producing the world’s first Arabic-language, U.S.-style soap opera, “Inheritance.” Concurrently, it’s lured more international film shoots to the region, including Bollywood hit “Bharat” and Michael Bay’s Netflix actioner “6 Underground,” thanks in part to a 30 percent production rebate. AlMheiri is going forward on a twofour54 Studio City complex in the Mina Zayed waterfront area, with a 74-acre backlot, permanent sets and water tanks, as well as a larger facility on Yas Island with state-of-the-art TV studios and office space for media companies including Apple and CNN, which recently announced a programming increase for its Abu Dhabi bureau.
