Netflix has finally made available to the public the first trailer for Blood Sisters, another Original it’s been working on with EbonyLife Films.
Blood Sisters, which is a four-part limited series, tells the story of two friends Sarah and Kemi. Sarah is engaged to her dream man, Kola. However, their seemingly idyllic union has a dark side – Kola is a physically abusive, controlling fiance. Despite Kemi’s vocal misgivings, Sarah is determined to press on with the wedding. On the day of the traditional engagement ceremony, tragedy strikes and Kemi accidentally kills Kola. Fearing that no one will believe that she acted in self-defense, the friends decide to cover up the death, unintentionally setting off a catastrophic series of events.
The production completed its principal photography last September and has been sitting high on many Nollywood lovers’ list of anticipated projects to watch this 2022.
Talking about Blood Sisters, CEO of EbonyLife Studios Mo Abudu says, “Blood Sisters is a crime thriller, which is a new genre for us, so the prospect was challenging but very exciting! It was also a particularly unique and intense experience as we shot during the pandemic, but we remained committed to the vision we share with Netflix – to tell authentic and exciting African stories with superb production values.”
