Drama series, SHADOW, by South African writer-director Gareth Crocker caused a stir when it was released on Netflix in March this year and it turned the spotlight onto the potential of the emerging markets in Africa.

Variety reported that ‘a scramble for Africa’ is afoot and described it as one of the world’s biggest developing markets. With a reputation as a world-class production hub, South Africa is well-placed to make the most of the attention by originating projects as well as providing services.

NV Studios is based in South Africa and the US. Witney Tucker, Head of Scripted and Acquisitions tells ConnectED on the company’s ambitions to capitalise on the interest in the region.
