The Governor TV series

"The Governor" is the riveting tale of Angela Ochello, the Deputy Governor of Savannah State, who with no governorship ambitions finds herself suddenly entangled in a web of political intrigue after the untimely death of the incumbent Governor.

As audiences embark on this journey with Angela, they get to see how with the help of her trusted Chief of Staff, she learns how to maneuver through the rough and shark-infested waters of politics whilst balancing the demands of her matrimonial home.

Set in Savannah, a coastal state in Western Africa established in 1964 and extremely rich in iron ore, "The Governor" will take viewers through the shadowy often gruesome corridors of power.

Can Angela stand up to her rivals and assume her place as Governor? Will the fear of losing her husband cause her to forfeit this opportunity?

Written by Yinka Ogun, Debo Oluwatuminu and Tunde Babalola and directed by Ema Edosio, the lead character ‘Angela Ochello’ is played by British-Nigerian actress Caroline Chikezie.

The upcoming series also stars Bimbo Manuel, Baaj Adebule, Kachi Nnochiri, and Simi Adejumo among others.

Ebonylife TV is set to premiere the series on Thursday July 7, 2016 at  9PM WAT.

The 13-episode series will air Thursdays exclusively on EbonyLife TV (DSTV Channel 165).
