Netflix will soon debut another African original globally, Blood & Water—a young adult drama series set in Cape Town, South Africa. The company also previously announced its first Nigerian original series by acclaimed Nigerian director, Akin Omotoso as well as an animated project, Mama K’s Team Four, a children’s animated series from Zambia.

African producers who’ve spoken with Netflix executives say it has one eye on the African diaspora around the world as their data shows African movies and new TV series are being watched globally.

Netflix added more than 15.8 million subscribers around the world in the first quarter as more people stayed home due to coronavirus lockdowns and precautions. African industry watchers say there’s increasing anecdotal evidence Netflix is winning subscribers across Africa. The numbers are still thought to be relatively small because Netflix does not yet break out Africa from its Europe, Middle East and Africa region where it added nearly 7 million subscribers.
