Written/Directed by Don Okolo and Produced by Nkem Denchukwu. “BAYOU CITY KINGS – BCK, a six-part TV Series Pilot, is a story that revolves around Africa’s wealthiest trio in a race to outdo one another. BCK is close-cropped, no fat, raging spitfire drama-adventure! Only they come with spicy doses of cruelty, murder, greed, seduction, sex, and love, enough to keep them all within the bounds of all acceptable carnal relationships.”
