Akwaaba Magic has once again proven itself as the leading local television channel in Ghana. Since its launch, it has delivered premium content that has kept viewers glued to their screens 24/7/365. Just when we thought that the channel could not surpass itself, we learned that it is set to launch yet another riveting investigative drama series titled - Inspector Bediako, this December.
In a statement released this week, Kennedy Dankyi-Appah, Channel Head for Akwaaba Magic stated that “the 1990’s Ghanaian detective drama series remained one of the most loved TV series ever produced in Ghana and that since the end of its production, calls continued to pour in for its continuation, thus, creating a fertile ground for the remake”. “Our mandate as a channel is to continue to find content that resonates with the audience,” Dankyi-Appah added.
“The riveting dramatic serving recounts the journey of Isaac Kwame Bediako (also referred to as Ike on the show) stepping into his father’s (the highly reputable and prominent Inspector Bediako Snr.) shoes. Under the watchful eyes of his superiors and envious colleagues, Isaac must match up or live to regret ever stepping forward to join the profession his father revered in,” said Dankyi-Appah. “Viewers can expect to witness a whirlwind of themes centered around heroism, patriotism, love, secrets, as well as greed and betrayal that most viewers can relate to,” he concluded.
The channel expressed its excitement with working alongside major players within the content curation space, like Ivan Quashigah - a multi-talented filmmaker with a vast amount of experience in the industry. Quashigah has produced and directed award winning shows which include Things we do for Love, YOLO and To Have and To Hold. Viewers are also set to be spoiled with a good mix of well-known stars, like: Anthony Woode (Isaac Kwame Bediako Junior), Brian Angels (Adjetey aka Blade), Darlyn Adu-Gyamfi (Oye Otoo), Naa Dedei Botchwey (Ike’s love interest), Oscar Provencal (Inspector Bediako Snr), Vincent McCauley (Gandlaf Morpkorpkor also known as Mo K on the show), a computer genius who aids Isaac and his team to bring criminals to the book, and Richard Kweku Asante a.k.a. Kalybos (Nasiru) the forensic scientist.
