The hot-selling Italian mafia series Gomorrah continues its international roll-out. Beta Film has sold the Sky Italia mega-hit to M-Net, the biggest subscription TV network in Africa, where it will be screened from 1 April 2017 on the new foreign language TV series block on M-Net 101, M-Net’s flagship channel. The South Africa–based, MultiChoice Group-owned TV service has only recently opened up to European productions and will broadcast the show in its original version with English subtitles as well as subtitles in local languages throughout the continent.

According to a report in New Telegraph, Nollywood movie ’76 has been one of the highest grossing films at the box office and has made US$2 million in sales and distribution across Africa.
