After the success of highly anticipated movie, Olobiri, Rogers Ofime has again completed a hilarious comedy series tagged Zone 222.
According to information gathered by Pulse, the road to the making of the TV comedy series began with an audition for the cast of the series that held on March 1, 2015 after which seven young actors emerged eligible for the cast.
The emerged actors for the comedy series include Tomiwa Kukoyi, Papa Sam, Jayeola Muyiwa, Anthony Igwe, Vannesa Ogboru, Eden Attai and Patrick Diabuah.
According to sources, the cast and crew moved to the Obafemi Awolowo University where the location was set and shooting commenced.
It was further gathered that Zone 222 is themed around the lives of seven students on a University campus- their struggles, follies and daily lives on campus.
ZONE 222 is a comedy series that depicts characters of all sorts on our various university campuses across the country and it is a much watch production for all and sundry.
ZONE 222 soap series were all shot at the University of Ife campus and its environs. Kudos must be given to both the cast and crew of this wonderful project for having done a very good job with the supervision of their director Rogers Ofime.
The production was adapted for television from a book entitled “Love Is Blind” written by Mufu Onifade. This play has been staged severally for NANTAP Arts week and for the university students on our various campuses.
Serializing this book for television is a very good move in the right direction as the audience will not only laugh but will be informed and educated as well. All the characters involved in this project have done justice to their given roles as they have interpreted them very well in terms of characterization.
ZONE 222 will be premiered on the 1st of June 2016 on Africa Magic Urban Channel 153 on DSTV. It will be aired from Monday to Friday at 8:30 pm with the repeat broadcast at 9:30 am local time. While the international time is at 21:30 CAT on the same channel with repeat broadcast at 10:30 CAT.
NATIVE MEDIA has produced other wonderful projects for television in the past which are still currently showing on DSTV. According to Eric Ossai who is the series producer for the company and also for this project, they have done other projects like The Johnsons, ToronGiwa, Hotel Majestic, Hush and this new baby called ZONE 222.
From my own assessment, this project will go very far because of its potentials of educating, informing and making its audience to laugh. The goal behind any comedy is to make its audience laugh which ZONE 222 has already met. Pretty soon, the characters in this production will soon become household names because of the quality of this production.
Conclusively, my thump up for the cast and crew of this wonderful project as i say more grease to your elbows and more feathers to your caps.
