Nigeria’s EbonyLife TV and Disney Media Distribution EMEA say they will co-produce a new series called “Desperate Housewives Africa.”

EbonyLife TV’s CEO Mo Abudu says the series will have “an African soul” featuring a cast of new and established pan-African talent that will showcase fashion by Nigerian dress designers. It is to air in summer 2014.

In a joint statement Monday, Abudu said the African version of the popular series will be filmed on location in a gated community of the upscale Lekki suburb in Lagos, Nigeria’s bustling economic hub.
