Versatile actress and movie producer Yvonne Nelson, is set to thrill Ghanaians with an exciting TV series scheduled to hit the screens in a month’s time.
In an interview with Showbiz last Thursday, the obviously excited Yvonne said she is thrilled about her new project and can’t wait to release it.
According to Yvonne, 90 per cent of the cast are all new people who do not have any acting experience, “the only known faces in there are Regina of GHOne and Live FM, Jason of GHOne, Pappy Kojo and myself, everyone else is totally new, “ she said.
Though she would not disclose the title of the upcoming series produced by Lieve for now, she stressed that it is centered around young people and it’s something that will appeal to the youth.
“When I was shooting If Tomorrow Never Comes, a young person of about 19 years approached me and suggested that my next project has to be around young people, I gave it a thought and here we are with this project”, the Executive Producer of the TV series explained.
“The writer is Richie who gave the story a body but the concept is from me, it is something that will appeal to the youth,” she said.
Touching on some of the challenges she went through while shooting the series, Yvonne said, “It was very challenging for me. I always want to challenge myself and it involved a lot of money which I single-handedly had to fund.”
She added that it felt like she was shooting three movies at the same time but at the end of the day, it all turned out fine because everybody on set did well considering that most of them had not acted before.
On what viewers should expect, Yvonne said, “it is going to be very exciting. People will be glued to their sets. It is also going to be on DStv so that people outside Ghana can also have the opportunity to watch it. The pictures are really good, Ghanaians should be patient and watch out for it.”
The series is produced by Lieve and the Executive Producer is Yvonne Nelson.
