Netflix Announces Mo Abudu’s “Baby Farm”

Mo Abudu, the boss of EbonyLife TV, will oversee the production of Baby Farm, a series about Adanna, a young pregnant woman who unintentionally gives her unborn twins to a well-known NGO, only to realize she is trapped in a dark baby farm.

Exploring Identity: Postcards Project Overview

Rita Dominic stars in the series alongside Joseph Benjamin, Onyinye Odokoro, Genoveva Umeh, Langley Kirkwood, and Jenny Stead.

Hamisha Daryani Ahuja produces and directs another scripted project called Postcards. This follows four Nigerians in India as they discover their identity through a journey of self-discovery.

Bolanle Austen-Peters directs and produces the period feature House of Ga’a, set in the 18th century old Oyo Empire. The film biopic, based on real events, tells the story of Bashorun Ga’a, a feared prime minister and kingmaker.

These three new projects were revealed at an International Women’s Day event in Lagos, Nigeria, called ‘Her Voice, Our Story’, which gathered prominent figures from the Nigerian film community.

Speakers at the event included Dorothy Ghettuba, Netflix Director of Content in Africa, alongside Bolanle Austen-Peters (Man of God), Hamisha Daryani Ahuja (Namaste Wahala), Chichi Nworah (Shanty Town), and Peace Hyde (Young Famous & African).

Expanding the Netflix Africa Slate Amid Industry Competition

“At Netflix, we aim to represent diverse lives through our stories,” said Dorothy Ghettuba of Netflix. “That’s why we’re committed not only to the stories we tell but also to the storytellers and audiences we serve. We’re excited to collaborate with these talented women in the creative industry to bring their stories to life and celebrate our culture.

The titles, including the returning series Blood & Water, are added to the Netflix Africa slate. This announcement coincides with an intense competition between Netflix and local streamer Showmax, which faces a $1.77B takeover bid from France’s Canal+.

Africa’s streaming industry has faced challenges this year, notably with Prime Video’s decision to withdraw from producing original content, following a series of global cutbacks.
