New WebSeries Alert: Gerald Langiri's 'SHIT HAPPENS'

After the success of the web series 'In the forest' back in 2013/2014, award winning Kenyan actor Gerald Langiri is back with yet another edgy but hilarious web series called 'Shit Happens'.
Described as a shitty web series that takes you through the life of one man whose life goes through...well...shit, 'Shit Happens' is a hilarious web series which will leave you looking forward to the next episode.
Collaboration between Life Dream Production and A Pembe Tatu Films, the web series is also produced and directed by Gerald Langiri who also acts as the protagonist.
The 1st webisode (or shitisode as they call it) is titled official shit and we see G at word minding his own business until one of his work mate sends him a very not suitable youtube video. While G is watching and visibly enjoying this the office snitch (there is always one)catches him in the act and reports G to the CEO. A lot of misfortunes and misunderstandings follow G until he finally gets fired. Is it a case of mistaken identity or none the wiser? You be the judge.
The Script was written by Maina Mundi who is also the editor. Maina wrote the script in 2012 but never had it produced. He approached Gerald Langiri who he already had in mind to play protagonist. Upon receiving the script, Gerald is said to have laughed so hard and immediately wanted to work on it. Gerald however saw that this could be developed to something bigger that just a standalone short film and decided to turn it into a web series instead.
The guy behind the web series has vowed to produce episode every month and hope people will enjoy to watch it as much as they enjoyed shooting it. Welcome to alternative TV where some of the things on the show cannot be dared to be seen on Kenyan TV.
