Nollywood veteran Richard Mofe Damijo has announced his first TV series.

According to the actor, it took him almost five years of dreaming, strategising and planning to make his dream of starring in a TV series a reality.

"It has been an uphill journey as I am as challenged if not even more so than most people who have taken up similar ventures," he wrote.

While RMD didn't reveal the title of the TV series, he announced that filming started on Monday, September 11, 2017.

He announced this feat via his official Instagram page.

New ventures are never easy. From conception to execution it's fraught with all kinds of challenges and emotional roller coaster. Here am not now even talking money or the resources. Just dealing with the moments of self doubt, nay-sayers, criticisms some constructive, others condemning, some destructive many reassuring. Sometimes it is a battle to keep the negatives down and stay in prayer and trust God to be God. You would think that after all these years in the business me wanting to do a TV series of my own would not be a big deal right? Lie. It has been an uphill journey as I am as challenged if not even more so than most people who have taken up similar ventures. I am my own worst critic and i set standards for myself that sometimes my partners call unfair but hey, it is what it is. Anyways, long story short, after approximately 5 years of dreaming, strategising and planning, cameras finally rolled today for my new TV series. I couldn't have done it without people like my baby of life Jumobi Mofe-Damijo @rogersofime @ninacool22 @sirfumze @mudiafrica1 @kingjfranklyn @afrinollystudios @ujejuh @taradurotoye @houseoftara_intl @ejiroamostafiri @victoriandee @interiorspecificsltd @moabudu @maitezeron @menaajakpovi and my wonderful team of creative minions who work tirelessly day and night to make Papa Bear look good. Thank you guys, God bless and enlarge your coast. For every other person wherever you are trying to start something, no matter how small or big and has doubts, just know you are not alone. We all have fears and doubts, it is what you do with them that matters. I have learned to trust the Spirit of God and He helps me ride mine, master it and let it become an inspiration to do more. Welcome to the wonderful world of The X Family. Thank you @ikogbonna for gifting me this beautiful top from #9jaurban
