Morula produced Jozi-H, a medical drama inspired by Johannesburg General Hospital. The drama series created by Mfundi Vundla is a Canadian-South Africa Co-production.

This edgy pace-setting drama has all the elements that make for exciting television viewing.

The resident doctors of Jozi-H all have one thing in common: There is never a dull moment in their lives. With thrilling elements such as romance, unorthodox medical practices, and the opportunity to play God, these doctors are bound to keep any viewer captivated.

Jozi-H takes place on a frontier, where modern western medicine meets traditional African healing; where groundbreaking HIV/AIDS research leads the way in search of a cure; where diseases no longer found in the first world remain a deadly challenge; and the volume of violent crime forces interns to become world experts on trauma in weeks, rather than years.
