Sunshine Avenue is a microcosm of the world. It is set in an upmarket neighbourhood in Africa – Cosmopolitan, funny and full of verve.
Imagine an avenue full of smart and beautiful people.
Imagine a place full of wit, humour, suspense and shenanigans in equal measure.
Sunshine Avenue could be found in New York, London, Johannesburg or Shanghai.
It has its unique African identity though, as is depicted in:
- The spoken word – the English spoken is distinctly African with a smattering of several dialects
- The soundscape – Guttural, raw, urban din, passionate
- Architecture – A kaleidoscope depicting varying influences
- Lifestyle is diverse, steeped in African culture - full of colour, glamorous fashion, exotic cuisine and distinct characters
A 24 minute satirical drama series, it mimics real life situations woven around:
- A femme fatal beauty spa owner
- The neighbourhood pastor – a con-artist who has undergone reformation and a divine calling
- A feisty but long suffering home-maker
- A handsome beau well-liked by all the women
- A wannabe diva with brains –well liked and hated equally in the Umoja house
- A mini-supermarket – the melting pot
