Naija Vamp will become Nigeria’s first Vampire-based TV series.
Nigerian/American actress, Yetide Badaki, in collaboration with American producer and director, Prentice Penny, is set to produce a new Nigerian TV series titled Naija Vamp.
Badaki, who is best known for playing Bilquis on the Starz series, American Gods, will be working on the project alongside Penny, Sebastian Jones, Chris Pollack, and Alex Soler.
The series, which will become Nigeria’s first Vampire-based TV series, centres on Bisi, a Nigerian vampire protagonist, who is on a journey of self-acceptance by the society. The series revolves around love and coming-of-age.
Penny noted that, “Yetide has created something extraordinary in Naija Vamp. It feels like the perfect blend of horror and comedy from a perspective we don’t get to see enough but need more of.”
At the moment, there has yet to be announced a release date for the series.
