Be a part of a groundbreaking new Australian TV show being produced by SL8IT Productions in partnership with VODO. Deadside is a supernatural TV show based on Voodoo mythology. Combining drama, action and comedy, deadside is as entertaining as it is addictive TV viewing.
Set in the western suburbs of Sydney, the show centers around Sara, a lonely teenage girl with a special gift. She is obsessed with death and the occult, particularly Voodoo mythology. She plays around with Tarot cards, Ouija boards, and recently has started hearing voices. Her friends make fun of her, her brother thinks she’s crazy and her parents want to commit her into a mental asylum. She doesn’t fit in anywhere and wishes all her problems would go away. Then one day a young man named Boli Shah contacts her.
Shah warns her that she is in danger, that a man named Baron Samedi wants her dead because she is an ancient Voodoo warrior named Ogunte. Samedi, guardian of the underworld, has risen into the world of the living. His aim is to destroy all the paths leading to Yemalla, the goddess of liveside, so he can kill her and let deadside rise up and take over the world.
Sara is Ogunte, the warrior path to Yemalla. She is the only one who can cross over to deadside, she is the only one that can stop him.
