Netflix partners with Inkblot Productions to produce untitled YA series

Inkblot Productions

Since Netflix announced its partnership with INKBLOT productions to create a yet to be titled drama series today, many questions have been on the lips of fans: 

●      When will it air?

●      What role will Funke Akindele play?

●      Who exactly are Inkblot Productions and why did Netflix pick them to helm such a big project?

Basically, Netflix we know, and Funke Akindele we know, but Inkblot?

Answers to the first 2 questions will be revealed at a later date. But we can answer the third question right now.

INKBLOT productions, a film production company based in Lagos, Nigeria, was founded in 2010 by Chinaza Onuzo, Zulumoke Oyibo and Damola Ademola and Omotayo Adeola, a group of (then) industry outsiders with a common goal; To create quality, commercially viable films and television shows for the Nigerian and international audience. Prior to founding Inkblot, this trio were white-collar professionals – Chinaza is in finance and private equity, Zulu is a lawyer and Damola works in Advertising and marketing; with only a love for film

The company’s first-ever production was a web series titled “Knock Knock” and premiered in December 2013. In the seven years since, they’ve released 12 feature-length films and have worked with a wide variety of directors (Niyi Akinmolayan, Kemi Adetiba, Tope Oshin etc) and actors (Funke Akindele Bello, RMD, Ramsey Nouah, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, Tina Mba, Jim Iyke, etc).

11 of Inkblot’s movies are currently streaming on Netflix, 2 of them (Wedding Party 1 & 2) rank first and second on the list of the highest-grossing Nigerian movies of all time, and 2 of their movies (The Wedding Party and Arbitration) were featured at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2016.

Now that you know a bit more about Inkblot productions’ stellar credentials, it’s clear to see that their partnership with Netflix is a match made in TV heaven.
