A co-production between Wananchi Programming and Kenyan production company Awali Entertainment for the Zuku Entertainment channel – formerly Zuku Afrika, State House is a modern day political drama set in Nairobi’s presidential residence. The 12 x 30 minute series was made in the capital and features well-known East-African actors.
Zuku Entertainment’s commission of State House follows the platform’s recent premiere of Groove Theory, a mix of music and drama that was directed for the stage and filmed for television.
“State House is Kenya’s answer to The West Wing. It is an excellent example of high quality locally produced Kenyan drama,” said Hannelie Bekker, managing director of Wananchi Programming.
“The first ever series to dramatise the inner workings of a living and breathing East African political institution, State House demonstrates Zuku’s ongoing commitment to investing in unique and original content, which delivers relevant and compelling stories for our audience. Zuku Entertainment’s ambition is to be the home of thrilling drama and entertainment, and State House provides all this and more.”
