David Oyelowo to produce biafra TV show

David Oyelowo, one of Nigeria’s most talented exports to the British movie industry, is currently spearheading efforts to adapt the story of the Nigerian Civil War into a limited series for the BBC. 

Titled Biafra, the series is expected to tell the heavy story through the eyes of a young, black British woman.  

The series is a collaboration between David Oyelowo’s Yoruba Saxon Productions, Argo Films, and Fremantle.

The CEO of Argo films, Richard Johns, had this to say about the production:

“I could not have wished for a better first scripted project. It’s an incredibly powerful story about discovering and reclaiming a lost identity and a forgotten history.”
