Ghanaian actress, Nana Ghana will play a recurring role in an upcoming thriller series by streaming giants, Netflix.
The series titled What/If explores the ripple effects of what happens when acceptable people start doing unacceptable things. The first season focuses on a mysterious woman’s lucrative but dubious offer to a cash-strapped pair of San Francisco newlyweds.
Academy Award winner, Renée Zellweger is one of the lead characters of the production. She plays a shrewd, mercurial venture capitalist whose success, and carefully managed public persona, are the result of a searing devotion to her unapologetic post-feminist doctrine — as exemplified by the title of a best-selling book she wrote, At Any Cost.
The series is written by Mike Kelley, directed by Phillip Noyce and produced by Page Fright, Atlas Entertainment and Compari Entertainment in association with Warner Bros Television.
Executive producing the series are Kelley, who also showruns, and Melissa Loy via Page Fright, Alex Gartner and Charles Roven via Atlas Entertainment and Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke via Compari Entertainment. Jackie Levine of Compari Entertainment serves as co-executive producer.
Noyce is directing and executive producing the first two episodes.
Ghana made her film festival debut at the 2016 Cannes film festival, premiering her short film WATER WARRIOR.
She won ‘Best Director at the Oregon Film Festival for her short movie ‘ELECTING.’ She also directed a documentary ‘LA Woman Rising’ produced by Rosario Dawson.
Her IMDb page describes her as “an artist with an appetite for life and experience and a deep curiosity for about human story , poetry and human behavior.
