Zambezi Magic (channel 162) is looking for a new 120 part drama series which depicts authentic ‘African’ experiences.The drama must be based in Zambia and showcase the true livelihood and experiences of those living in the country.
The drama series must touch on engrossing and compelling themes, while staying true to the specific world it depicts. It must touch on social commentary without being too didactic.
The drama series must deliver conflict, laughter, tears and create an unparalleled emotional connection with the audience. At the core of our new drama must be unique and new stories, different from our current content slate. The premise of the drama must be strong enough to carry 120 episodes, straying from repetitive narratives.
Proposals that are replicas of our current drama slate will not be considered.
Exploring new and fresh ideas that tap into the nuances of the market, please bear the following in mind:
This drama series must be family friendly and inspirational yet remain rooted in story and encourage appointment viewing.
Only submissions from writers based in Zambia will be considered.
