The Naked Convos is moving beyond its online community set-up and tries to claim a stake in the TV world.
Titled 'Our Best Friend's Wedding' the web series is a "Romantic Dramedy about a young man who, when his thirtieth birthday approaches, panics at still being unmarried, buys a ring on a whim, recruits his two girlfriends to help, draws a list of potential candidates and sets off a series of events that leads to a wedding."
The series stars Oreka Godis, Kunle Remi, and Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi (which kind of makes sense because the BEAT FM OAP has been involved in TNC from day one). The web series will be shown on Accelerate TV.
For fans of the online community, it is a no brainer that they would watch the web series. The Naked Convos has managed to create a hub of loyalists that are hooked on all their articles and posts.
For people who are not familiar with the brand, the quality of web series will be the determining factor if they watch or not.
As TNC moves into TV territory, they should consider doing documentaries and video essays on love, relationships and Nigerian couples. This might suit them more as a brand that encourages openness and discussion.
