‘Crazy, Lovely, Cool’ is Nollywood’s first TV show on Netflix

Netflix has acquired Obi Emelonye’s TV show, Crazy, Lovely, Cool, making it the first Nigerian show to stream on the platform. The 10-episode show, which explores Nigerian university life, first aired in the United Kingdom on May 28, 2017. The series is a coming-of-age show that follows young undergraduates who are brought together by a shocking revelation from a gossip blog.

Crazy, Lovely, Cool is written by Kemi Adesoye, who penned Kunle Afolayan’s The Figurine. Its star-studded cast includes Swanky JKA, Enyinna Nwigwe, Wale Ojo, Yetunde Oduwole, Daniel Davids, and Adesua Etomi.

Swanky—the charming lead in Living in Bondage: Breaking Free—plays Gattuso, the enforcer of the most famous gang on campus, SS Confraternity. Etomi plays Funmi, a blogger, bachelorette, and a reluctant politician. Nwigwe plays Izu, a private investigator, blogger, and entrepreneur.

Crazy, Lovely, Cool starts showing on Netflix from December 15, 2019.
