Danai Gurira is flying the Zimbabwean flag high once again after landing a lucrative new role in upcoming HBO series, Americanah. She will be joined by a familiar face, as Lupita Nyong'o has been commissioned to executively produce the piece.

Americanah the series will be based on the book of the same title by author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The book tells the story of two young teenage girls whose paths are separated by their tertiary education choices. One friend makes her way to the UK while the other heads off to America.

Danai will be starring in HBO's adaptation of the popular novel and she expreseed her excitement at reuniting with Lupita when she wrote,

“Through Americanah, Chimamanda brought the African female voice into mainstream consciousness in an unprecedented way. It is intellectually incisive, indicting, yet full of humor, and riddled with humanity. She makes unheard voices familiar, universal and yet palpably specific,” said Gurira. “I am honored to bring her incredible novel to life on the screen.

I’m thrilled to collaborate once again with Lupita who brings her astounding ability as a performer and producer shepherding this project, along with HBO Max’s unbridled enthusiasm to bring this groundbreaking narrative to the TV audience.”
