I’m so excited to remind you about the series of the season, Tsikamutanda! The new fantasy series will consist of 5 episodes, set in the modern day Bulawayo. This series follows the life of Ralph who seems to be caught between worlds: aching to find his way through his disjointed past and still living a lie, Ralph battles with what is morally right.
The production started on the 27th of November, this consisted of scouting locations, contracting actors and working on the script. The cast and crew threw themselves into the production, working collaboratively to come up with a mind blowing visual epic. Some scenes needed to be built from scratch and the team was subjected to early shooting commitments.
The series airs on the 31st of March, I’ll introduce you to the recurring cast in the meantime.
