The producers of the film are South Africa’s adored ‘first family’ of TV production, Shona and Connie Ferguson alongside Samad Davis of U.S based Visionary Media Inc.

It is no secret that everything that the media moguls touche always turns to gold and we are here for it. In 2011 they launched their production company, Ferguson Films.  The company has produced multiple hit series for Mzansi Magic, which includes Rockville, iGazi, The Gift The Throne, The Herd, The Queen, and The Imposter and now they have this new baby.

According to a statement released by Netflix SA, the 6-part series delves into the legacy building, fragmented family structures, treacherous brotherhoods, and the effects of crime and African masculinities on families and society at large. Loyalties will be tested, with long-held secrets threatening to shatter the fragile facade.

In this thrilling test of loyalties under the gritty, concentrated populous of the crime-ridden streets of the city of Johannesburg, unravels another first for local audiences, a palpable action-drama series with a layer of dark fantasy and a sinister aspect of the African occult.

The power couple recently shared a snippet of the series on Instagram and the trailer is already giving many goosebumps. The trailer introduces the series' cast to the masses and it boasts some of Mzansi's renowned and award-winning actors.

Shona portrays the character of Simon “Vader” Masire, a member of the KOJ brotherhood and the eldest of the Masire siblings. As the smoother and charming brother, prolific businessman Simon leads the family business. However, under the lavish suits and ties is a man hiding a deep dark secret. 

Zolisa Xaluva portrays the role of Mogomotsi “Mo” Masire, Simon’s young brother and an ex-convict who finds himself having to choose between the life that got him in jail and honouring his responsibilities to the legacy of a crime family and older brother he loves.
 
Joining the ensemble cast is TK Sebothoma as the spoilt and privileged Tlotlo Masire, Buhle Samuels as the gorgeous and supportive wife to Simon, Angela Masire, and Tsholofelo Matshaba as the straight-talking detective who’s obsessed with bringing down the Kings of Joburg. Adding to the impressive cast is SK Khoza as Cyrus, Abdul Khoza as Lester, Nnekwa Tsajwa as Sting, and Cindy Mahlangu as Phumzi.
 

As the countdown has begun we are already waiting with bated breath for the premiere, may the 4th be with y'all.
