Nollywood continues to grow and grow! Out of the industry is a branch that has developed among Africans living in diaspora, the USA specifically. This is industry is called Nollywood USA and is growing in leaps and bounds. Out from there has come a hilarious comedy titled ‘LAPD African Cops’ produced by Nollywood USA producer/director pioneer, Pascal Atuma!
Hollywood-based Nigerian Pascal Atuma is creating waves in Los Angeles with his newly wrapped up comedy flick LAPD African Cops, written and directed by him in continuation of his efforts to bridge the gap between Hollywood and Nollywood. This Hollywood production was produced by Dr. Oscar Atuma & Pascal Atuma, and co-produced by Ime Etuk.
Synposis: The movie is a story of two Africans who came to America and joined the Los Angeles Police Department. They were commissioned and sent out to the streets of Los Angeles, instead of them using the LAPD rules and regulations to judge the American streets; they decided to judge the streets using African culture, norms and values.
