Nigeria will soon have its own Wisteria Lane.

EbonyLife TV and Disney Media Distribution EMEA released a joint statement Monday announcing they will co-produce Desperate Housewives Africa, a new series with “an African soul” based on the ABC comedy-drama hit that aired in the U.S. for nearly a decade.

The African version will be filmed on location in a gated upscale community outside Lagos, Nigeria. The show, premiering next summer, will include a pan-African cast and showcase fashion from Nigerian designers.

Oh geez, I didn't know that Nigeria counted as the whole of Africa. Call things by their name. This is Desperate Housewives Nigeria. Africa is not a country!

This is one of those "yeye" dey smell that these oyinbo people use to corrupt our values. They never stop trying, and there as we all know "willing" victims, who want to be known and seen in the most contemptible manner.

 <!--Google is paying 85$ per hour! Just work for few hours & spend more time with friends and family. Yesterday I bought a top of the range Lancia after having made $8755 this month . Its the most-financialy rewarding I've had. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it

@KathyAnon Ebony Life TV is a pan-African station, even though its studios are in Nigeria. That's why the show is named that way. It will feature actors from various countries on the continent...
