Mo Abudu Talks to CNN About Partnership With Sony To Create Female Warriors Series

Mo Abudu, CEO of EbonyLife TV, spoke to Isha Sesayabout her forthcoming series, The Dahomey WarriorsIn an interview with CNN.

She explained 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).

Mo added that development of the project led to the search for a suitable global production partner, which resulted in the deal 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.
