The production company which is the brainchild of Mzansi's power couple and media moguls Shona and Connie Ferguson, has been working hard to bring fresh content. Even though Shona is against opening up the industry they are open to introducing new faces this year. 

"The term “recycling actors” is very insulting to actors in our industry. Actors act. That’s what they do for a living. Saying because they’ve been on 1 project they should be cast away and someone new must be cast is unfair. I have never cared for this particular phrase “open up the industry” because it's what we do every day of our lives. We open up the industry to new and old talent. We open up the industry to the world."

Taking to Instagram, Shona announced that they are looking for new lead actors to star in their shows. The production company produces numerous shows such as Igazi, The Queen, and Rockville. Shona said those who are interested should send their short bio and a 1-minute monologue to an email he shared on his Instagram post.

So do you have what it takes?
