Vernacular (Culturally specific to the world of the story)
Zambezi Magic (channel 162) is looking for a new 52 part drama series which depicts the authentic African experience.The drama must be based in the Copperbelt and depict the true livelihood and experiences of those living in the Copperbelt.
The drama series must touch on interesting 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 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 slate.
Thinking outside of the norm, while staying true to the authentic nuances of the Copperbelt:
This drama series must be family friendly and inspirational yet remain rooted in story and encourage appointment viewing.
Please Note: Only submissions from writers based in the Copperbelt will be considered.
