Desperate Housewives Africa
Nigeria’s EbonyLife TV and Disney Media Distribution will co-produce a new series called Desperate Housewives Africa. EbonyLife TV’s CEO Mo Abudu says the series will have “an African soul” featuring a cast of new and established pan-African talent that will showcase fashion by Nigerian dress designers. Desperate Housewives Africa will air in summer 2014.

In a joint statement Monday, Abudu said the African version of the popular series will be filmed in Lekki Lagos, Nigeria.

Disney EMEA general manager Giovanni Mastrangelo said it offers “the opportunity to engage African audiences through locally relevant and entertaining storytelling.”
