A new journey begins

The MultiChoice team has delivered another spectacular production.

25 October 2019 | Art and Entertainment

Hosted by Nico Panagio, the premiere of Trackers took place last week at Monte Casino in Johannesburg.

Trackers is a much-hyped six-part series that will start airing this Sunday, 27 October, at 20:00 on DStv's M-Net (channel 101).

The series is based on Afrikaans author Deon Meyer's crime novel of the same name.

“We are celebrating something special. I did not expect anything less from the sensation that is Deon Meyer,” said Panagio at the launch event. This is the second time Meyer's work has been adapted for mainstream television.

Meyer described Trackers as a South African homegrown production, saying he has had other works adapted, but this one is better.

“It is one of the most complex novels, so I had challenges,” Meyer admitted.

Trackers highlights organised crime in Cape Town, which entails the smuggling of diamonds and rhinos from neighbouring countries.

The star-studded cast includes Rolanda Marais, James Gracie, Thapelo Mokoena, Sandi Schultz, Brendon Daniels, Sisanda Henna, Trix Vivier and Jill Middlekop.

Sandi Schultz's character name is Janina, the director of the presidential bureau of intelligence. Janina works closely with Mokoena's character called Quin Makebe.

Another interesting character you should look forward to in this series is Julius Shabangu, also known as Inkunzi. This character is brought to life by Henna. Inkunzi is the go-to crime boss in Cape Town, who makes things happen and lives a lavish lifestyle.

Overall, if the first episode is anything to go by, Trackers is an excellent production and we can't wait to see how the story unfolds in the remaining episodes.

It is commendable for M-Net that they once again looked for an excellent concept and brilliant writing, while casting some of the best within the movie industry.

Some of the high-profile media personalities who graced the red carpet at the launch included Anele Mdoda, Claire Mawisa and Tumi Morake.
