For its upcoming young adult series “Far From Home,” which premieres on December 16, Netflix has released a first-look video.
The Dami Elebe-penned film “Far From Home” tells the tale of Ishaya (Mike Afolarin), a charismatic adolescent and gifted artist from a low-income family whose dreams suddenly seem within reach after receiving a coveted scholarship to the most prestigious school in the nation, which thrusts him into the affluent world of Nigeria’s elite. Ishaya’s newfound prominence and, eventually, the security of his family are threatened by a massive secret that is still being kept.
Funke Akindele, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, Bolanle Ninalowo, Bucci Franklin, Bimbo Akintola, Linda Ejiofor, Chioma Akpotha, Femi Branch, Carol King, and Ufuoma Mcdermott are just a few of the rising stars who will appear in the five-part series. The vanguard of rising artists includes Mike Afolarin, Elma Mbadiwe, Genoveva Umeh, Gbubemi Ejeye, Olumide Oworu, and Natse Jemide.
Principal filming for the Netflix original was completed early this year, two years after Inkblot Productions originally disclosed the partnership.
We’re thrilled to be teaming with Netflix to create this remarkable program on a worldwide scale for and about young Nigerians, says Far From Home co-creator and founder of Inkblot Productions Chinaza Onuzo.
“Working with such an amazing cast and crew to tell this unique story about making your way in the world and chasing your dreams no matter your status in life is such a privilege and honor.”
The global premiere of “Far From Home” is set for December 16, 2022.
