The new ITVX British comedy Count Abdulla is out this June. 

The series follows Abdulla Khan - a mid-twenties British-Pakistani Muslim doctor stuck in an identity crisis, caught between his religious mother and his secular, hedonistic friends. 

But when Abdulla is bitten by a vampire he suddenly becomes the outsider's outsider.

Arian Nik (The Bay) is cast as Abdulla Khan alongside Jaime Winstone (Four Lives) as Kathy.

The series also includes: Nina Wadia, Manpreet Bambra, Jaime Winstone, Sia Alipour, Rishi Nair, Mariska Ariya, Robert Eades, Moe Bar-El, Jonny Green , Sophie Reid, Demmy Ladipo, Priya Davdra  and Nikkita Chadha. 

In the first 30 minute episode out on June 15, Abdulla's mother is keen to show him off at the first Eid since he qualified as a junior doctor; unfortunately the new moon this year coincides with Halloween, and as a lifetime horror devotee he's desperate to go to his friends' costume party.
