Will Pakistan be making its Netflix debut with an original series or movie based on Omar Shahid Hamid’s book The Party Worker?
His third book is going to come to life on our screens but we’re not sure whether it will be Pakistan’s first Netflix Original.
The 42-year-old writer, who is also currently serving as a police officer, took to Twitter to announce the news with some obscure hashtags. He said that he has already signed a film or series deal with the streaming giant for his acclaimed book.

Hamid was responding to a tweet which asked what show should be the first Pakistani series on Netflix.
The tweet does not confirm anything else. Though the the hashtag used, #NetflixHereWeCome, could be a pretty big hint about the collaboration.
There are number of Pakistani films and dramas now available on online streaming giants including Netflix, but we yet to have one of our own originals.
