Exploring a rigged society
Set in contemporary Nigeria, The Hidden serves as a mirror to a society plagued by corruption and inequality.

As the series progresses, layers are peeled back, revealing a world that is both inspirational and foreboding. Vibrant quotes, engaging books, a kaleidoscope of colors, an extensive garden, and a serene yet bustling cityscape create a dynamic backdrop for 'The Hidden.' The diverse ethnicities and dialects further enrich the tapestry of this gripping drama.
Ominous, foreboding, and off-kilter
The Hidden sets a distinct tone that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. The series masterfully weaves an atmosphere of ominous anticipation and foreboding, leaving audiences unsure of what lies ahead.
