Looking to strengthen its arrival in Nigeria, Netflix is teaming up with Mo Abudu‘s EbonyLife to make more visual content for the streaming platform.
According to Variety, the multi-title deal will lead to the creation of two original series and multiple branded movies.
The partnership will see a film adaptation of Death and the King’s Horseman (a play by Nobel Prize winner Wole Soyinka) and a series based on Lola Shoneyin‘s bestselling debut novel The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives.
One of the unnamed projects will premiere on the streaming platform in 2020. More details on the rest of the EbonyLife slate will be revealed at a later time.
Mo Abudu became a household me in the 2000s with her daytime talk show Moments With Mo. Since then, she has risen to become one of the most prominent and trusted names in Nigerian entertainment.
In 2018, EbonyLife struck a three-series deal with Sony Pictures Television, with the first project set to tell the story of the female warriors of the ancient West African kingdom of Dahomey.
