Netflix Original star-studded crime thriller, ‘Shanty Town’ has been set for a release in January.
Following the announcement earlier this year that the platform had acquired the feature film-turned-limited series, the show is set to premiere exclusively on the streamer on January 20, 2022.
Dimeji Ajibola (Ratnik) while announcing the release of the limited series expressed excitement while congratulating everyone involved in the making of the series.
“The date is set. #shantytownthemovie is coming to @naijaonnetflix as Original Series. This is a win for the entire cast and crew. Congratulations.”
‘Shanty Town’ was written by Xavier Ighorodje and Donald Tombia, and the story follows a group of courtesans attempting to flee the clutches of a notorious kingpin. Political corruption and blood ties make escape nearly impossible.
Chidi Mokeme stars as the lead in the Chinenye Nworah-produced film alongside Richard Mofe-Damijo, Sola Sobowale, Shaffy Bello, Ini Edo, Uche Jombo, Nse Ikpe-Etim, and Toyin Abraham.
‘Shanty Town’ will premiere on Netflix on January 20, 2023.
