Think CSI! Joke Silva, Bimbo Akintola, Keppy Ekpeyong-Bassey star in “Lasgidi Cops”



Lasgidi Cops - BN Movies & TV - July 2014 - 01
Coming soon to the TV screens is a series titled – Lasgidi Cops.

Just like international crime thriller series like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Criminal Minds, this one is full of suspense, twisted plots and drama. But a different story line.

In Lasgidi Cops, the characters try to uncover a plot to organize a crime to ultimately take over the government of the state.

Starring in the series are acclaimed actors including Joke Silva (Commissioner of Police), Keppy Ekpeyong-Bassey (Lawyer) and Bimbo Akintola (Chief of Prosecution), as well as rising talents such as Kehinde Bankole (Journalist), Wole Ojo (Strategist), Adesua Etomi (The Chameleon), Kelechi Udegbe (The Go-to-Guy) and Olumide Oworu (The Hacker)

The series is produced by Ola, with direction by Ani Ekins and Ola Naresh as the Director of Photography. It will broadcast on TV stations across Africa, Europe and North America, as well as on online and mobile platforms.

The trailer will be released soon.

Check out the promo photos for the cast!

    Kehinde Bankole doesn’t look like herself

      I think because it’s because THAT IS NOT Kehinde Bankole. And for her to be described as a rising star? Hmmm………

    The j in joke Silva is not capalized, it is bothersome. Produced by Ola, Ola what? Ola Rotimi? Ola Balogun?? Who’s the screenwriter?

    This press release is pretty vague. Seems like they are riding on the cast to sell the series. And then it would be viewed in Africa, Europe, sounds like they haven’t gotten that covered yet! Hope it’s well thought out, directed and scripted.

    If Joke and Bimbo are in it then it must be good because I know they rarely star in nollywood mediocrity. That Etomi chic is stunning. Good to see new faces. Sick of the old cargos

    It’s not about the cast alone, directing is key and post production together with continuity cannot be over-emphasised. Hope it will also survive the test of times as other naija series sha o.
    Bring it onboard!….*can’t wait*

    nice…………..:) but am little disappointed,i thought the name lasgidi cops would probably refer to law enforcers solving crimes, like csi but apart 4rm Joke as the commissioner,the hacker and chameleon, the rest of the major cast, lawyer,prosecutor,journalist,etc point to courtroom drama and politics. I love all thrillers o and would love the series either way, but just saying the name ‘lasgidi cops’ may not be painting the right (whole)picture.

    aargh. i would really hate it if they copy Law and Order and those investigative shows. i don’t see this being good. good cast but the story and acting might be too much and exaggerated. fingers crossed
