The mix of crime and love and corruption and freedom that has come in the wake of the birth of democracy in South Africa takes the spotlight in this brand new, homegrown drama series on Mzansi Magic.
Produced by Penguin Pictures, Saints and Sinners stars a superb line-up of acting talent, including, Nthati Moshesh, Tumisho Masha, Nomphilo Gwala, S’dumo Mtshali, Tshepo Maseko, Warren Masemola, Sibulele Gcilitshana, Yonda Thomas and Siyabonga Radebe.
This gripping family drama centers on the lives of two very different families, living in the south of Johannesburg.
One of these families is the upwardly mobile Khumalos. Headed by matriarch Mamohato and her two attractive daughters, Phindi and Boni, the Khumalo family lives in the upmarket suburb of Bassonia. The other family is that of hard-working Lulama and Thabang Moloiswa who live in a modest home in Diepkloof with their adored son, 12-year-old Tshepiso.
Last week's episode set the scene for the series when an armed robbery set off a tragic chain of events that tore both families apart.
Here is what to look forward to this week.
It’s a difficult time for the Moloiswas’ as Lulama and Thabang find their lives changed forever. Meanwhile, things are tense in the Khumalo household as Mamohato puts pressure on Ndumiso. Will Phindi and Siya's coffee date go according to plan and has Nkosi really turned over a new leaf?
Make a date with Saints and Sinners this Sunday, 17 August 2014 at 20:00 on Mzansi Magic – Channel 161 and watch as the drama unfolds in the lives of the Khumalos and the Moloiswas.
