As we enter a new season in TV-ville, we're inundated with a number of viewing choices thanks to Mzansi Magic. We've all already geared up for the new seasons of The Ranakas, Papa Penny Ahee, All Access Mzansi, Lockdown and more but we're going to have to add a new thrilling drama to the schedule.
Ferguson Films, the incredibly popular producers behind shows such as Rockville, Igazi and Mzansi Magic’s popular telenovela, The Queen present a new drama series called 'The Imposter' - a story about identical twins torn apart by evil.
According to DSTV, 'The Imposter' is a 13-part drama that follows a story of twin sisters, Mantwa and Matshepo Tau who find themselves at war as a consequence of a moment that changed their lives.
How exactly does this happen? One of the sisters breaks out of prison after spending seventeen years and takes over the wonderful life of her identical twin who is responsible for her incarceration.
Thishiwe Ziqubu takes the lead portraying the role of the twins alongside Mpumi Mpama (as Reginald), Khulu Skenjana (as Caesar), Omuhle Gela (as Lerato), Zenzo Nqobe (as Junior), Mary Twala (as Gogo), Owen Sejake (as Warden Moloisi) to name a few.
“We are excited with the reception our dramas have received from the viewers thus far. Our partnership with Ferguson Films has ensured that we attract an even larger audience. The Imposter is ground-breaking and it comes packed with all the ingredients of a great story touching on themes such as love, betrayal, revenge, secrets and manipulation,” says Reneilwe Sema, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
The Imposter premiers on Sunday, 8 October 2017 at 20:00 on Mzansi Magic, DSTV Channel 161.
