iNaija... The Shondrella Adventures (TV Show Pilot)

"An African-American woman living in Los Angeles (L.A) has a dream in which she finds herself in a desert, sitting astride a camel. When she awakes, she is no longer the person she was when we went to sleep. She is instead consumed by a desire to embark on a voyage of discovery into her past (Africa). In what could forgivably have been mistaken as the fictional plot of a movie, The Shondrella Adventures is the very real tale of a dream that inspired African-American actress Shondrella Avery-Kester (‘Girls Behaving Badly’ (2002 – 2005), Napoleon Dynamite’ (2004),  ‘Déjà Vu' (2006), ‘The Secret Life of Bees' (2008), ‘Our Family Wedding' (2009), ‘Gillian in Georgia’ (2010)) to embark on a journey of discovery. The Shondrella Adventures is a mockumentary series set in Nigeria, chronicling Shondrella’s real life experiences. The series is scheduled for a 2011 shoot." - Tolu Ogunlesi
This one kinda reminds me of Ricky Gervais' Sky 1 TV show, 'An Idiot Abroad'. Well actually not kinda, more like alot! The key word to note here is this is a mockumentary so don't take it  too literally please! The scene at the fabric shop was priceless to say the very least! When the shop assistant said, "O de nice o! O Nice! Ori e o kan pe ni (she's nice but she's NOT right in the head), I almost died laughing!
