African Movie Channel starts production

International pay TV operator African Movie Channel has set up an in-house production division to develop and produce more of its own movies and TV series.

African Movie Channel Original Productions (AMCOP) will focus on African storytelling by home-grown talent and will leverage its existing relationships with prominent Nigerian producers, the company said.

AMCOP is aiming to add more than 20 exclusively owned movies to its library before the end of 2018 and is working with filmmakers including Jade Osiberu, Paul Igwe, Ola Producer, Ema Edosio and Daniel Oriahi. The first AMCOP product is set to begin airing on African Movie Channel in December.

As well as African Movie Channel, the company also runs the AMC Series and Nolly Africa networks. It started producing programmes in 2016, with titles including AMC Movie Talk, Nollywood 360, Screen Patrol and Bloggers Round Table. It produced its first drama series, Asunder, last December.

“As a global player, it has always been important that the content we create is of superior quality, and we have made sure we partnered with filmmakers and actors who are of the highest calibre to join us on this journey,” said Yvonne Dublin-Green, African Movie Channel’s head of channels.
