Netflix has signed a deal to produce its second South African Original Series, Blood & Water.
“Blood & Water will be a teen-led drama which follows a local teen uncovering her family’s secret past and navigating the complicated world of a South African high school,” the company said in a press release.
The show will feature a local cast, and be directed by Nosipho Dumisa of Gambit Films.
“As a director who loves genre, this series combines the best of so many and isn’t shy to delve into the real issues of youth culture, whilst jam-packing it with twists that will keep viewers guessing,” Dumisa revealed.
Production for Blood & Water is set to start later this year. Netflix will launch the show globally in 2020.
“We are delighted to be investing further in African content and to partner with Nosipho and the team at Gambit Films to bring our second original series from South Africa to Netflix,” the company concluded.
