CNN talks to Mo Abudu on Partnership with Sony to produce “The Dahomey Warriors” | Watch!



In a recent interview with CNN, the CEO of EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu spoke to Isha Sesay about her forthcoming series, The Dahomey Warriors.

Mo revealed that six years ago the channel came across amazing stories, including one about female elephant hunters in 1645, who developed into a feared fighting force and bodyguard to the ruler of the west African kingdom of Dahomey (part of modern-day Benin).

In addition, the media guru stated that development of the project led to the search for a suitable global production partner, which resulted in the partnership with Sony Pictures Television in late March, stressing that The Dahomey Warriors will be the first of many stories that will come to our screens, as a result of the deal with Sony.
