Enterprise Entertainment, based in North Palm Beach, Florida, is producing an original television limited docu-series called “CAPE TO CAIRO Africa Transcending” based on the romantic true story of Ewart Scott Grogan, who from 1898 to 1900 trekked the African continent from south to north to win the hand in marriage of the woman he loved by charting a railroad for British Colonial Imperialist Cecil Rhodes.

This limited docu-series will compare Africa across three generations of Grogan family members in the years 1898-1900 when Ewart Scott Grogan trekked from Cape to Cairo, in the 1980s years when Tony Grogan repeated the trek (filmed in 16mm) and in present times when Lauren Grogan repeated the Cape to Cairo trek last year in 2018 (filmed in 4k).

The original 1898 to 1900 Cape to Cairo trek will be re-created using actors we are now seeking with filming to take place in 2019.

The following are some of the story elements to be re-created with actors:

On his two year ultimate survival challenge, Scott Grogan encountered incredible adventure and several near-death experiences with his buddy Eddie and his wise African guide Makanjira.

In Cape to Cairo, black and white worlds collide in tumultuous conflict and eventually learn from each other the value of reconciliation and mutual respect.

At the time of this epic story, the British Empire expansion was at its peak under the reign of Queen Victoria. Her royal European competitors such as King Leopold of Belgium “scrambled” for power and wealth by colonizing the “Dark Continent” of Africa.

Empire-building was the preoccupation of Scott and his Victorian country men. After reaching Cairo, Scott married his true love and went on to be a prosperous, pioneer settler in Kenya.

Makanjira returned to South Africa by steamship and was reunited with his wife and family.
