South Africa -- July 17, 2020 -- Netflix brings the next captivating South African Rom-Com to the world's screens with the upcoming title, Seriously Single. The comedy, featuring popular names Fulu Mugovhani, Tumi Morake, Bohang Moeko, and Yonda Thomas, will be released on Friday 31 July 2020 across the globe.

Set in Johannesburg, South Africa, Seriously Single tells the tale of the serial monogamist Dineo (Fulu Mugovhani), as she navigates the modern-day dating world alongside her best friend and partner in crime, the commitment-phobe Noni (Tumi Morake). When Dineo meets Lunga (Bohang Moeko) who appears to be the man of her dreams, she begins to uncover what she wants in life and love, as Noni unfolds her own story with Max (Yonda Thomas), the bar owner with a heart of gold. The wonderfully comedic misadventures of Dineo and Noni shows the beautiful power of having strong friendships.

Produced by the acclaimed Ramaphakela siblings Tshepo, Rethabile and Katleho from Burnt Onion productions, this new title is part of Netflix's strategy to intentionally amplify African voices and stories for a global audience. A product of the Emerging Black Filmmakers Transformation Fund jointly pioneered by the South African National Film and Video Foundation, the Department of Trade & Industry and the Industrial Development Corporation, Seriously Single is now part of Netflix's fast-growing slate of African content. Producers and co-directors Rethabile and Katleho Ramaphakela commented, "we are thrilled for the opportunity to partner with Netflix as we share our latest project with the world. As a seasoned production company, we relish this new adventure as we extend ourselves outside of Africa into the world. It truly is a time for Africa to own its voice and we're honoured to be part of this significant movement"

The title represents the support of African creativity exhibited through Netflix investing in the local production industry. Tumi Morake's return to Netflix's screens as the first African female to have her own stand-up comedy special, rings true to the themes presented in Seriously Single that empowers women of colour navigating this modern world of life and love. The arrival of the show on Netflix is also timely as the country enters Women's Month when South Africans commemorate their annual Women's Day on 9 August.

Netflix's Director of Licensing and Co-productions in Africa, Ben Amadasun, has already made revolutionary strides in adding a wide variety of exciting licensed titles from the continent. "With every quality local title we license, we come closer to our goal of making Netflix the home of the best-in-class African content for our members," says Amadasun, adding, "Our acquisition of Seriously Single from Indigenous Film Distribution will not only contribute towards the growth in diversity, genre variety and quality of African content on the service but also demonstrate the opportunities available for content creators across the continent to collaborate with us to take their great quality content to a global audience."

On launch day, the 31st of July, rom-com fans worldwide can look forward to watching Seriously Single in a massive virtual watch party. The lead actors Fulu, Tumi, Bohang, and Yonda will be joined by co-stars in celebration as the world salutes black excellence.
