Becoming Abi

Becoming Abi, a six-episode workplace comedy-drama created, written and co-directed by its star, Bolu Essien, will debut on streaming platform Netflix this autumn.

Produced by Essien’s production company Evolving Light Studios, the series is inspired by her experiences working in an advertising firm and looks at life as a professional in Nigeria. It will debut on October 28.

Essien, who plays the lead role, said: “To think my first big project is exactly about my journey to this point, I still can’t fathom it. God, indeed, is the greatest planner. When the details are out, you’ll understand more.

“To the crew who worked with me to bring my baby to life, thank you. I have called you all to thank you at different times but this is so if you stumble on my page, you’ll know how much I appreciate you. To the cast who took on the characters, if we get to do season two, I’ll bring everyone back, that’s how solid you guys were. Professional and committed.”

The show is directed by Terrel Ejem and the cast also includes Benita Okojie, Seun Ajayi, Biodun Stephen, Akah Nnani, Juliana Olayode, Ifeanyi Kalu and Idowu Philips.
