Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) has announced plans to produce a TV series on renowned figures of Persian classical literature Sa’di and Hafez.
IRIB launched the project recently in a bid to produce a new television series highlighting renowned figures of Persian classical literature such as Sa'di and Hafez.
“The Iranian Luminaries Project aims to introduce rich Persian literature and civilization, which only promotes peace and friendship in the world,” said Ali Darabi, IRIB deputy director.
The massive project is expected to take from five to seven years until completion, while employing a large group of artists from Iran's Fars Province.
Celebrated Persian poet Hafez is known for his divan, which is regarded as one of the pinnacles of Persian classical literature.
Sa'di is one of the greatest figures of classical Persian literature, famous worldwide for his Bustan (The Orchard) and Gulistan (The Rose Garden).
