KABUL, AFGHANISTAN | 2015-04-12 | The young cast on set at work behind the scenes of “Shereen’s Law”. “Shereen’s Law”, a disputed TV series which was due to be aired in early 2016 on Afghan TV, tells the story of a 36-year-old single mom who brings up three children on her own while forging a career as a clerk at a court in Kabul. While the main character, Shereen, fights corruption, harassment, and rape, decision makers at MOBY Group (the producing company) decided that the story is too controversial and may have back lashes. The production was suspended in summer 2015 and most of the key people including the director and screenwriter were dismissed.
