Shot on location in Lagos, set in the glittering and dynamic world of film production, Nigeria's most successful soap opera Tinsel marries all the elements of drama, intrigue, romance, deception, betrayal and triumph into one thrilling 'must watch' series.

Now in it's fourth season, Tinsel continues to track the story of two rival film production houses whose fierce battles for box-office dominance sees them taking their rivalry from film-sets to industry boardrooms and everywhere in between.

This drama series centres around the energetic and enigmatic Fred Ade-Williams, founder of Nigeria’s biggest independent film company “Reel Studios” who gets drawn into a battle of wills with daring newcomer Brenda “Nana” Mensah, whose beauty and intelligence is only surpassed by her drive to transform her film company “Odyssey Pictures” into a dominant force.. And she will stop at nothing. Brenda has installed a “weak link” in Fred’s company… a mole, and her exploitation of it sparks off a corporate war that vibrates through the entire film industry.

What starts out as a power struggle between two influential studio owners soon grows disastrously out of control. No one is immune and everything is put to the test as these titans clash and destinies are changed, forever. With so much at stake, will Fred’s refusal to sink to his opponent’s level cost him everything he’s ever held dear?
