Showmax has released the trailer for its newest Nigerian original drama series, Flawsome.
Set to debut on the 10th of November 2022, Flawsome follows the lives of four friends played by Bisola Aiyeola, Ini Dima-Okojie, Sharon Ooja and Enado Odigie as they navigate their personal and professional lives while bound by the flawed yet unbreakable ties they share.
Bisola Aiyeola, winner of the 2018 AMVCA trailblazer award portrays the role of hard working heiress Ifeyinwa, who has worked her whole life towards becoming the CEO of her fathers company after his demise, only to discover that she is not her fathers choice candidate. Ramat, played by Ini Dima-Okojie appears to have a flawless marriage, great career and perfect middle class life, but things are not what they appear to be. Sharon Ooja takes on the role of Ivie, a curious young woman who abandons medicine and surgery for a career in fashion design and dreams of a big city girl life. Enado Odigie plays Dolapo, a career-driven woman who continues to beat the odds as she moves steadily up the corporate ladder with the biggest clients in her portfolio.
In Flawsome, these young women portray a compelling, flawed and heartbreakingly human story where they work hard, scheme, fall in and out of love, while nurturing both big and small dreams. Despite their inconsistent individual circumstances, one thing remains the same, their loyalty to each other and their devotion to the hustle.
The 13-part drama series, created and directed by Tola Odunsi, also stars Gabriel Afolayan, John Dumelo, Baaj Adebule, Iretiola Doyle, Toyin Abraham, Chris Attoh, Ali Nuhu, Joselyn Dumas and Shine Rosman. Speaking on the new series, Dr Busola Tejumola, executive head of Content and West Africa Channels at MultiChoice Nigeria said, “Flawsome explores friendship, relationships, career and some of the most important issues that affect young women across the world, and particularly in Nigeria, today.”
Film producer, Tola Odunsi, who is popular for the hugely acclaimed web series The Men’s Club, takes the reins on Flawsome, and will be bringing the ingenuity that he has come to be known for into play in the Showmax Original. “With Flawsome, it was important to create not just a glossy show but one with real depth that the audience would find very relatable,” said Odunsi. Shot in the metropolitan city of Lagos, Flawsome comes hot on the heels of Diiche, Showmax’s first Nigerian Original limited series and joins the growing line-up of local content on the streaming platform.
