Nigerian agency Mace Entertainment and broadcaster Zee World have held a press screening for Deceptive Measures, their Nigerian adaptation of an Indian scripted format.
The show runs to 104 half-hour episodes and is the first local version of successful Indian drama Pavitra Rishta.

The new show will star Nollywood actor Mike Godson who signed a deal with Bollywood producers last year to feature in an English-language TV series on Zee World, the South Africa-based Bollywood channel.
He later met Rani Rajesh, director of Spectrum Film in Indonesia, Ijeoma Onah, founder of NIFS and Manoj Jagtiani, Mace Entertainment’s CEO, and Deceptive Measures was launched.
