‘The World’s Strangest Jobs’ Sells Prime Video Rights to Africa | Trending Viral hub


Comedy documentary series “The World’s Strangest Jobs” from Johannesburg Mannequin Photosone of South Africa’s leading production, financing and distribution companies, has sold to main video rights to the African continent.

Mannequin is now looking to sell in all other territories. The eight-part series is hosted by comedian and actor Schalk Bezuidenhout. The popular South African comedian, a household name in the country of his birth, balances his SAFTA-winning acting work (“Hotel”) with his bread and butter as a comedian. Most recently, he was part of the Netflix comedy show, “Only Jokes Allowed.”

His latest work follows Bezuidenhout traveling the world in search of the ‘world’s strangest jobs’, discovering many from pet detectives in New York to rental boyfriends in Tokyo.

“We are thrilled that Prime Video has picked up this original show that will give audiences a front-row seat to races no one could imagine,” said Mannequin CEO Delon Bakker.

The continued push for streamers in the region is no surprise. In an Ampere Analysis report late last year, it was predicted that global streamers could drive 75% growth in the sub-Saharan Africa subscription video on demand (SVOD) market. With $220 million in annual revenue available by the end of 2027. The competitive landscape differs from many other parts of the world thanks to Showmax being a serious local competitor to global streaming platforms.

“The World’s Strangest Jobs” is produced by Delon Bakker and Kyle Ambrose of Mannequin Pictures. The company recently wrapped production on the theatrical film “London Calling,” directed by Allan Unger (“Bandit”) and starring Josh Duhamel (“Transformers”) and Rick Hoffman (“Suits”).

Highland Film Group is handling international sales for “London Calling.”
