EbonyLife TV is set to produce Nigeria’s first legal drama series titled “Castle and Castle,” starring Richard Mofe-Damijo and Dakore Egbuson-Akande.
The series follows the story of a married couple, ‘Remi Castle’ and her husband ‘Tega’ – two lawyers who run a successful practice in Lagos. They met 20 years ago when he taught her in law school.
About legal drama series “Castle and Castle”
A former law professor, ‘Tega’ is passionate about human rights. However, as the years have gone by and the nature of the firm has changed, he has had to fight extra-hard to get such cases.
‘Remi’ is a beautiful, brilliant woman who loves her husband, but they have different legal interests – she prefers clients that have deep pockets and pay massive retainers.
Their marriage is put to the test, as a host of family issues crop up and affect their work.
“Castle and Castle” will take viewers through their lives and they band together against outsiders and fight each other when their individual desires clash.
Will their marriage survive or will it succumb to the pressures of their work environment?
