CRIMSON – A Web Series Inspired by Nigeria’s Intriguing Political History

CRIMSON is a series of short ‘factitious’ thrillers based on events in Nigeria’s history. It is inspired by the need to throw light on some of the darkest days of our history as a nation, the need to celebrate freedom of information and strengthen investigative journalism.

Consisting of three episodes, Amazing GraceYour Cup of Tea and Ink, Piss & Blood, the story is centered around Akin, an A-list detective and henchman of a notorious dictator who realizes that dedication to his duty may cause him more than he bargained. He encounters three political prisoners and in his bid to crack them he comes face to face with his own demons.
