Local Drama Series to Hit the Screens


By Frederick Philander


The first 13 episodes of the country’s first television drama series is scheduled to be broadcast on prime time NBC viewing next month, it was announced in a press release this week.

Titled, The Ties That Bind, the 26-part series is produced by Optimedia, a local film company that was short-listed with two other local film companies in the commission system of the NBC some time last year.

A question mark still hangs over the budget for the 26-part series.

Speculation is rife in the film fraternity that the amount allocated to the project can be in the vicinity of N$5 million, bearing in mind that an episode could cost as much as N$200??????’??
