Following up on its uber-popular comedy TV series, “Jenifa’s Diary”, Funke Akindele’s SceneOne Productions has released the first teaser for a new series, Industreet, a musical drama that will star K-Switch, Linda Ejifor and Lydia Forson.
Directed by Abdul Rasheed Bello (or JJC as he is better known), the upcoming TV musical drama will focus on survival in the entertainment industry, and on the hustle in the ghetto.
According to Akindele, who serves as producer, and will also star in the new series, Industreet is inspired by her musician husband, JJC.
The series will also star Charles Okocha, Mo-Easy, Freeze of Cool FM, Tina Mba, Kunle Coker, Akah Nnani among others.
We don’t know if it’s just us but, the series already looks like it shares some eerie similarities with “Empire,” FOX’s musical drama that stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, after all, who doesn’t love a good musical drama right?
No official word on a release date or even where we can catch the new series yet, but we expect all that to be cleared up in the coming weeks. We’ll keep our ears to the ground and bring you word on where and when you can catch it as soon as it gets out.
In the meantime though, enjoy the short teaser below.
