“I hope to introduce the world to four strong African girls who save the day in their own fun and crazy way,” creator Malenga Mulendema says.
Netflix has announced its first animated original series from Africa—Mama K’s Team 4.
Created by Zambian writer Malenga Mulendema, the series follows four teen girls living in the neo-futuristic African city of Lusaka, Zambia, where they get recruited by a retired secret agent who still strives to save the world. The series’ illustrator is Cameroon’s own Malcolm Wope, who was inspired by 90s R&B; and hip hop girl groups.
Mama K’s Team 4 is yet another addition to Netflix’s growing slate of original animated programming designed for kids and families everywhere.
