Support ZEMEN Drama

“ZEMEN” is being produced and broadcasted on Ethiopian Broadcasting Service EBS every Sundays and Tuesday twice a week (208 Episodes). Zemen drama is transmitted twice weekly, which makes is the first of its kind in the country in terms of producing two new episodes per week. On average it has an audience of over 15,000,000 in TV in weekly bases, with over 500,000 viewers online every Episode. ZEMEN has two main stories one focuses on family issues which is directly linked to the other story on irregular migration. Both the stories are interwoven and highly interlinked each other that attract viewers at all level.

The story of irregular migration is flowing from the sources in Ethiopia to the destination country's Saudi Arabia, labia and United States. Different pushing factors of irregular migration, such as lack of information, the expectation of migrants, the challenges of irregular migration and the anguish of migrants (such as risking life, dying, raping, organ stealing and etc) are clearly displayed on the drama. It also clearly depicted the route in which irregular migrations frequently takes place to Italy, the involvement of smugglers and their cruelty and brutality in handling the migrants, the wrong information from the diasporas, and the real life of irregular migrants in the destination country in Italy. The story, in general, will tell every ups and downs and challenges of young Ethiopians practicing irregular migration.

Producing Television series is becoming very difficult in Ethiopia b/c of lack of financial resources. Zemen is being produced by the support of only few people and very young talented individuals. The cost of production of Zemen is very high compared to the revenue collected. As the revenue is so small that we can't afford to lease or rent anything to produce Zemen. We have been exerting our utmost effort to produce and broadcast 68 episodes of Zemen drama since two years back. Recently we lack finance to proceed the production of Zemen, so we are kindly request our viewers to extend their little financial support for the production of Zemen drama. If we get some financial support we will assure you that we will come up with Season 3 of Zemen drama with better production, acting and story.
The little support and contribution from our viewers will make a difference. The little support we get the stronger we become to protect our culture, tradition and custom. Support Zemen be part of the family.
