Netflix has unveiled a slate of female-led African projects to coincide with International Women’s Month. Netflix is backing three projects from female filmmakers in Nigeria and Africa including the series Baby Farm, executive produced by EbonyLife’s Mo Abudu.

EbonyLife TV boss Mo Abudu will exec produce Baby Farm, a series following Adanna, a young pregnant woman, who unknowingly entrusts her unborn twins to a high-profile NGO, only to discover she’s become a prisoner of a sinister baby farm.

Rita Dominic leads a cast that includes Joseph Benjamin, Onyinye Odokoro, Genoveva Umeh, Langley Kirkwood, and Jenny Stead.

The slate also includes House of Ga’a by Bolanle Austen-Peters, whose 2022 drama, Man Of God was also released by Netflix. Her new feature film is set in the 18th 18th-century Oyo Empire and follows a ferocious prime minister who becomes more powerful than the kings he enthroned.

Austen-Peters is producing alongside Joseph Umoibom. The cast includes Femi Branch, Mike Afolarin, Funke Akindele, Toyin Abraham, and Ibrahim Chatta.

The third project is Postcards, a series exploring four Nigerians in India who go on a journey of love and self-acceptance. It is directed and written by Hamisha Daryani Ahuja and stars Sola Sobowale, Tobi Bakre, Rajniesh Duggall, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Rahama Sadau, and Nancy Isime.

The three projects were unveiled at an International Women’s Day event in Lagos, Nigeria, dubbed ‘Her Voice, Our Story’, which brought together leading lights from the Nigerian film community.

All three projects will be released on the streamer in 2024.
