GHANAIAN FILMMAKER Leila Djansi’s latest award-winning television series, ’40 & Single’, is set to be aired in Ghana for the first time since its production.
Africa’s Leading Pay TV service provider StarTimes will premiere the series on December 2, 2018.
The TV series, which won the Audience Award for Episodic Pilot at the 2018 LA Film Festival, will be aired exclusively in HD on StarTimes’ Adepa TV channel 247.
Leila’s 40 & Single features Hollywood movie stars Vanessa Williams, Leon Robinson, John Savage and Miranda Bailey as well as ace Ghanaian actors such as David Dontoh, Fred Amugi, Adjetey Annan, John Dumelo, Rama Brew, Grace Omaboe, Doris Sackitey, Nikki Samonas, Joselyn Dumas, Luckie E. Lawson, Marie Humbert, and Deon Matthews.
40 and Single is an invitation into the tumultuous life of Ebaner Temple — a bi-racial, bi-sexual, single, bridal fashion designer. We witness her manoeuvre life in the African city of Accra, Ghana, where race and colourism have significant colonial roots and neo-colonial implications.
Ebaner’s life and the lives of her clients intertwine as they explore the new age of the African woman, her independence and her challenges in a patriarchal society.
StarTimes will use the six episode TV series to entertain its cherished subscribers during the festive season. The presence of top Hollywood actors and actresses with Ghana’s finest and veteran acts gives the movie a lot to desire.
