“We are happy to have our web series get international recognition ofcourse. We started the series as a joke, to be honest but the reception that we received from episode 1 was enormous and we decided to continue doing other episodes.” Says Gerald Langiri, the producer who also doubles up as the director and main actor of the show.
“I wrote the script in 2012 and had Gerald in mind to play the role of the main guy. It was meant to be a short film but Gerald saw the script and thought it would make a nice web series and he wasn’t wrong. The beauty about this story is it can take any turn. We were a little skeptical of what Kenyans would think of the use of the word ”Shit” but we are happy that it has been accepted. “Says the Writer and Editor of the show, George Maina Mundi.
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.
Now into its 4th Episode, the series can be found on youtube or on their Facebook page “Shit Happens original TV series” where they release an episode per month to which they say they owe it to limited resources but they wont mind releasing episodes more frequent if they get a sponsor on board.
There are also rumors of a movie in the making from the Web Series creators.
