EbonyLife TV has announced the release date for Nigeria’s first legal drama series titled “Castle and Castle,” starring Richard Mofe-Damijo and Dakore Akande.
The series will be exclusive to the network’s Video on demand platform, EbonyLife ON, from July 1, 2018.
The series follows the story of a married couple, ‘Remi Castle’ and her husband ‘Tega’ – two lawyers who met 20 years ago when he taught her in law school.
A former law professor, ‘Tega’ is passionate about human rights. However, as the years have gone by and the nature of the firm has changed, he has had to fight extra-hard to get such cases.
‘Remi’ is a beautiful, brilliant woman who loves her husband, but they have different legal interests – she prefers clients that have deep pockets and pay massive retainers. Their marriage is put to the test, as a host of family issues crop up and affect their work.
“Castle and Castle” will take viewers through their lives and they band together against outsiders and fight each other when their individual desires clash.
Will their marriage survive or will it succumb to the pressures of their work environment?
Produced by Isioma Osaje and Temidayo Abudu, “Castle and Castle” is directed by Niyi Akinmolayan, Tope Oshin and Kenneth Gyang.
The series also features Eku Edewor, Deyemi Okanlawon, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Dorcas Shola Fapson, Ade Laoye, Diipo Ayo-Adeusi, Anee Icha, Denola Grey among others.
