Mo Abudu Announces New EbonyLife Series “Baby Farm”
Renowned Nigerian filmmaker and EbonyLife CEO Mo Abudu has unveiled plans for a new scripted series titled “Baby Farm.”
Abudu took to Instagram over the weekend to share news that production will kick off on the highly-anticipated series this coming Monday, Jan. 22, 2024.
“A new series loading that you are all going to binge and love,” Abudu teased in her announcement post. “It’s called ‘BABY FARM.’ Logline: How far will you go to get the baby of your dreams?,” she captioned the Instagram post.
The concept for the series seems to explores the ethics behind surrogacy and wanting a child at all costs. Abudu expressed her excitement, “This kind of story, we have never done before!”
While full details are not yet released, early glimpses suggest “Baby Farm” will tackle weighty themes regarding reproductive rights and technology.
Abudu co-created the story along with writers Heidi Uye and Darrel Bristow-Bovey. The script was completed in late 2023.
The number of episodes in season one is still unconfirmed. But social media images point to a potential pidgin language component for the show. Production falls under the banner of Abudu’s EbonyLife Studios, which she founded in 2013.
For the prolific CEO and producer, “Baby Farm” adds to an already stacked 2024 slate. That includes content partnerships with Netflix with the recently released series “Wrath & Revenge” as well as forthcoming projects like “Oloture: The Journey ” which we anticipate this year.
With cameras set to roll imminently, fans eagerly await more details on the characters, casting and plot of Mo Abudu’s next buzzworthy series.
