Agu S1

Directed by AMVCA-winning director Anis Halloway (Unmarried, Truth, Hustle), Agu is a six-part legal drama series that explores the lives of three Nigerians – Etim (Nollywood legend Kanayo O Kanayo), Pius (Nonso Odogwu), and Victoria (Ruby Okezie) – as they find themselves entangled in a court case for the murder of Jonathan, a close friend of Pius. 

Etim is a 50-year-old, well-read lawyer who is down on his luck and struggling with his career, not to mention an alcohol problem. After crossing paths with Pius, a believer in traditional worship who is accused of killing his friend in a forest, Etim jumps on the case as a chance to revive his dying career, going head to head with the ambitious prosecuting counsel, Victoria, with whom he shares a complicated history.

Nothing is as it seems on the case and, as the trial unfolds, the series sheds light on the characters’ complex relationships and dark secrets, while also exploring the struggle between belief systems.

Agu also stars Mofe Duncan, Ireti Doyle, Linda Ejiofor, Ego Nwosu, Vine Olugu, and ex-Big Brother Titans housemate Miracle.
