SABC 1 is getting a new drama series DIAMOND CITY, which premieres this week.
The drama series tells a story of Zandile (played by Noxee Maqashalala), South Africa’s most prolific female public prosecutor. She is a star, an inspiration and a proud, no-nonsense law enforcer who is rising up the ranks of the legal profession at light speed. There’s no knowing how high she’ll go – until the day she is arrested for murder.
The hero has fallen and the public is in shock. She goes from an officer of the law to a criminal. From hero to outcast! From the top of the world to the depths of despair!
Now Zandile finds herself arriving at the gates of the very prison where she has been sending the guilty to. And one question keeps going through her mind, over and over again: How did this happen? She is innocent…and yet, here she is.
But soul searching is a luxury Zandi cannot afford now. She is immediately thrown into the harsh and brutal world of Diamond City. The reality of the situation is worse than she could have ever imagined. Not only are the conditions appalling, the guards abusive and the hopelessness crushing. She is also about to face a number of women whom she last saw when she was the one who got them sent to jail.
Diamond City will premiere on Sunday, 14 October 2018 on the 20h00 slot.
Lead cast: Noxee Maqashalala (Zandile), Thabang Molaba (Mak), Lehlohonolo Makoko (Skhosana), Angela Sithole (Pearl), Ilse Klink (Abida), and Makgano Mamabolo (Rosina).
