MultiChoice’s Showmax is gearing up to premiere Crime and Justice Lagos, Nigeria’s new police procedural and crime drama series, on Thursday, 8 December 2022, with new episodes to be released every Thursday for six weeks.
Set against the backdrop of Lagos, Crime and Justice explores the activities of the fictional Serious and Special Crimes Unit (SSCU) headed by its charismatic boss, Deputy Commissioner of Police Femi Biboye and made up of an elite team of top detectives led by Superintendent Kelechi’ KC’ Farasin and Superintendent Danladi Dikko.
Speaking about the show, Dr Busola Tejumola, Executive Head of Content and West Africa Channels at MultiChoice Nigeria, said, “Crime and Justice Lagos is unlike any other Nigerian Original we have put out. We’ve created a crime series that captures the city’s pulse – from its glitzy clubs to its grimy ghettos – through the lens of law enforcement agents tasked with keeping its citizens safe. Each episode mirrors real crime stories that audiences will connect with and will give them a lot to ponder about.”
The series features William Benson, Folu Storms, Jammal Ibrahim, Nollywood veterans, Uche Mac-Auley, Paul Adams and Femi Durojaiye, with other emerging talents including Margaret Osuome, Ejirooghene “Jyro” Asagba and Makinde Adeniran, with Yinka Edward as Executive Producer.
Crime and Justice Lagos is the third Showmax Nigerian Original released by the streaming platform since it established its physical operations in Nigeria this year.
Other Showmax Nigerian Originals currently streaming include Flawsome and Diiche, the docu-series Journey of the Beats, the comedy series Ghana Jollof, the reality TV series I am LAYCON and the record-breaking Nigerian instalment of The Real Housewives of Lagos.
