Nigeria and Disney Set To Produce “Desperate Housewives Africa”

(AllHipHop News) There are unsatisfied housewives in the world and apparently it is The Walt Disney Company’s global duty to give them their shine. Announced today, Nigeria’s EbonyLife TV and Disney Media Distribution EMEA will co-produce the new series Desperate Housewives Africa.

The show would feature “an African soul” and will provide “the opportunity to engage African audiences through locally relevant and entertaining storytelling” according to a joint statement. The show will also act as a vehicle to promote Nigerian dress designers and feature pan-African acting talent.

The U.S. version of “Desperate Housewives” was broadcasted on The Walt Disney Company-owned ABC channel and ran from 2004-2012. Its series finale scored 11.1 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among its core demographic (adults 18-49).

There are other versions of Desperate Housewives that have been produced in Turkey, Argentina,Brazil and the United States in Spanish.

Desperate Housewives Africa is set to premiere in the summer of 2014.

  • I am confused, so are African people demanding to see a full cast of white women on there networks, or are they asking for an African version with a full cast of black women?

    • dfwricwil

      I was wondering the same thing. All I see is white women and I know dam well it’s some sisters over there somewhere…SMH!
      I hope this is just a promo.

      • Knowing how our African people think, I am sure they want to see a the original cast with all WHITE women…lol…(joke)

      • Immortal

        That would be too much like right huh? I bet this would all be based in South Africa and the only wife that is black on the show is the married “help”.

    • RBG4Life

      Im glad, let them make f*cking fools of themselves some. God knows we’ve done enough!

    • Good question. You will see a selection of big booty women with permed hair and bleaching their skin to match the color tone of Beyonce.
