Netflix Signs Deal for “Blood & Water”, Their Second Original Series from South Africa

Netflix has signed a deal with Gambit Films to create their second South African series “Blood & Water”. The new series is described as a teen-led drama which follows a local teen uncovering her family’s secret past and navigating the complicated world of a South African high school. The series will start production later this year with a global launch in 2020.

Gambit Films and I are so excited to be working with Netflix on this explosive young adult drama, with not only a cool look at strong female leads but also a powerful mystery at its core. As a director who loves genre, this series combines the best of so many and isn’t shy to delve into the real issues of youth culture, whilst jam-packing it with twists that will keep viewers guessing.

– Nosipho Dumisa, Director
