WATERSHED ENTERTAINMENT, Producers of the much awaited television drama series “IN LOVE AND ASHES” have concluded plans to hit Nigerian tubes with the program that seeks to address the challenges of the insurgency that has ravaged parts of the North East in Nigeria using television as a medium of communication.
The series will be broadcast on NTA Network and Ebony Life TV. Broadcast of the program will last for eight weeks starting from 1st and 4th April 2018.
IN LOVE AND ASHES is a compelling eight-part drama series. It is a story about loss, regret, forgiveness, and the incredible human spirit and its capacity for healing. It is a narrative of hope in the face of disaster, a bitter-sweet tale that highlights the social, humanitarian and moral challenges that bedevil communities and their inhabitants that have experienced violent extremism in north eastern Nigeria.
Set in, Maiduguri, the series throws a cast that accentuated love over hate and draws the moral conclusion that to overcome the monster of insurgency, all stakeholders must rise above ethnic and religious differences and fight back the menace. Cast includes Anita Pam, Charles Etubiebi, Nafisat Abdullahi, Sani Danja, Tijjani Usman Faraga and Patience Ozokwor.
It is our firm conviction that media advocacy, especially using film and television as a tool for conflict resolution and integration in communities like those of the North East shall add important efforts made so far to restore humanity to the people. This is why we have also chosen to align with the #NotAnotherNigerian which allows Nigerians to jointly speak up about ways to counter violent extremism.
Popular Nigerian Artist 2Baba has recorded a soundtrack for the series titled “IN LOVE AND ASHES”. The video will be launched at the series premiere event scheduled to take place in Lagos.
The latest updates from the series will be posted on the ‘In Love and Ashes’ social media pages:
