Nigeria's first original series is coming to Netflix.
The EbonyLife Studios production directed by acclaimed Nigerian filmmakers Biyi Bandele and Kenneth Gyang is a four-part crime thriller limited series that will debut globally and exclusively on Netflix on the 5th of May 2022
Blood Sisters tells the story of two friends Kemi (Nancy Isime) and Sarah (Ini Dima-Okojie) who is engaged to her dream man Kola (Deyemi Okanlawon.) Sarah and Kola’s seemingly idyllic union has a dark side and despite Kemi’s vocal misgivings, Sarah is determined to press on with the wedding. What follows is a heart-stopping series of catastrophic events marked by murder, love, betrayal and the test of friendship.
The thrilling drama explores themes like intra-family relationships, physical and substance abuse, love, commitment and relationships, as well as the test of friendships when held up against challenging circumstances. The limited series is set against the bustling backdrop of Lagos and it's also an ode to life in the city as it brilliantly juxtaposes the various socio-economic divides in Africa’s most famous commercial and social hub.
Blood Sisters also features a roll call of Nollywood’s finest, including screen legends and industry pioneers Ramsey Nouah, Kate Henshaw, Uche Jombo, Segun Arinze and Joke Silva as well as film heavyweights Nancy Isime, Ini Dima-Okojie and Deyemi Okanlawon, amongst others. Fan favourites returning to the screen include Wale Ojo, Gabriel Afolayan, Kehinde Bankole, Daniel Etim Effiong, Keppy Ekpenyong-Bassey, Maurice Sam, Ibrahim Suleiman, Toke Makinwa and Okey Uzoeshi.
