Nnedi Okorafor is creating a TV series company for Africanfuturist stories. The multi-awarded novelist revealed this on Facebook via a post on 16 April.
The company’s name is Africanfuturism Productions, Inc.
In a reply to a comment by the writer and University of Manchester lecturer Geoff Ryman, she wrote: “TV series are my focus right now. Film is too restrictive.”
Here are screenshots of her post and comment.
No further plans have been revealed by the writer, whose 2011 World Fantasy Award-winning novella Who Fears Death is being adapted for HBO by A Song of Ice and Fire series author George R.R. Martin.
We cannot wait to learn more about this project.
Congratulations to Nnedi Okorafor.
