EbonyLife TV launches two new productions this month


EbonyLife TV hosted a Media and VIP cocktail event at Terra Kulture,
Victoria Island, Lagos to premiere two new productions – New Horizon and
Married to the game on March 7, 2014.

New Horizons is a powerfully emotional and pulsating flick that
spotlights the plight of women across Africa who have to bear the pains
of domestic abuse, a crime far too familiar but rarely spoken about.

Starring Nollywood’s hottest Divas, Funke Akindele, Rita Dominic, Kate
Henshaw-Nuttal and Uche Jombo, New Horizons is the story of triumph over
abuse of these four women from different walks of life who meet together
within a self help group for women. They help each other get over and
through their various challenges and arrive at a new horizon in their
individual lives.

Executive Chairman and CEO of EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu said “I feel a huge
sense of accomplishment at the premiere of New Horizons. As the world
celebrates World Women’s Day tomorrow, March 8, we dedicate the short
movie to all the women of Nigeria, Africa and the world at large who may
be going through this terrible scourge. We are happy to put this dark
subject on the table for discussion so that there can be hope for many.
For us, it may be the premiere of the movie; but for all women of
Africa, it may just be the beginning of a new era; an era of
self-discovery, awareness, belief, hope and confidence.”

Guests at the premiere event included Tosyn Buknor, Ebuka Obi- Uchendu,
Alex Ekubo, Oreka Godis, Noble Igwe, Yemi Alade, Ikechukwu, Adams
Ibrahim, Zainab Balogun Olisa Adibua, Lanre Olushola, and many more.

Married to the Game (MTTG), a suspense-filled, cutting edge drama
thriller was also premiered at the event; starring Alex Ekubo and
Leonora Okine as lead characters. The series was produced by EbonyLife
TV and directed by Walter “Waltbanger” Taylor winner of AMVCA Best Short
Film 2014.

Walter “Waltbanger” Taylaur said “Married to the Game is a roller
coaster ride of a drama series; distinct in its blend of a cleverly
crafted script, visually engaging cinematography and exceptional acting
performances. It brings to African audiences a fresh and cutting edge
approach to television viewing.”

The series tells a story of newlyweds Vincent and Gloria Coker who are
headed toward a blissful future together. Gloria (Leonora Okine) marries
Doctor Vincent (Alex Ekubo) in a bid to appease her father, who is
unhappy because of her total lack of interest in becoming a doctor and
inheriting his hospital. The tale, however, takes a new twist when the
couple runs over a stranger after their wedding reception.
