Lifestyle channel Red TV, launched by United Bank for Africa (UBA), is set to debut new drama Public Figure on its YouTube platform on May 19.
The show is a tale of power, fame and lust and will feature award-winning Ghanaian actors including Van Vicker, Dela Seade, Kingsley Yamoah, Aaron Adatsi and Daisy Little. Eddie Seddoh is directing and associate producers include Obina Okerekeocha and Olufemi Bamigbetan.
The lifestyle channel said: “This time we bring you something really shiny from the Gold Coast. Prepare to be entertained like never before.”
Red TV is also behind other recently launched series, such as The Men’s Club, Inspector K and Our Best Friend’s Wedding.
The most recent series, Assistant Madams, was announced in January. The story revolves around the lives of three aspiring female Lagos socialites and their journey to ‘big girl’ status.
“Red TV was birthed by the UBA to support the creative industry in Nigeria and also across the African continent,” said the channel’s exec producer Bola Atta, speaking at the Assistant Madams launch in Lagos recently.
“For about four years now, we have been creating employment through entertainment. The potential revenue that can be generated in this industry is often underestimated and it is only in recent times that more people have had the courage to leave traditional professions and embrace the creatives. We want to encourage talented and creative professionals to pursue their dreams and to confidently feel that they are contributing to economic growth.”
