Digital lifestyle and entertainment platform Accelerate TV and award-winning Nigerian director Yemi ‘Film Boy’ Morafa are working on a new drama series scheduled to debut in the next couple of months.
The as-yet untitled series is written by Cheta Chukwu and Dami Elebe and directed by Morafa and stars Mawuli Gavor, Joke Silva, Ibrahim Suleiman and Theresa Edem.
Although there is little information about the series, Nigerian streamer Accelerate TV said on Instagram: “Accelerate Drama Series… Coming soon.”
Moraya is best known for his work on original film Africa Magic’s Battleground and Something Wicked, a feature released in 2017. In 2018, his short film ENO was screened at the Africa International Film Festival and he directed thriller City of Bastards in 2019.
African online lifestyle channel RedTV is set to premiere its new web drama series The Men’s Club.
Directed by Tola Odunsi, executive director at Urban Vision, and written by Dami Elebe, the series features Nollywood stars including Ayoola Ayolola, Etim Effiong, Enado Odigie, Baaj Adebule, Sharon Ooja and Grace Ajilore.
It details the journey of four men, their experiences dealing with women, how men generally think and how the world’s opinion of men can be redefined. The characters are a reflection of a typical Lagos man, according to RedTV.
The show will debut today on RedTV, which is backed by the United Bank for Africa.
