Dineo Moeketsi has been posting Instagram images on set of a mystery show and now we know what it is!
Mzansi Magic’s new telenovela, The Queen, is a fast-paced telenovela about a dedicated wife, mother and successful businesswoman, Harriet Khoza (Connie Ferguson) who is forced to do the unthinkable when her husband’s (Treasure Tshabalala) secret comes to light.
According to Mzansi Magic “Harriet has lived her whole life as a spoiled trophy wife, but tragedy strikes her family and she is forced to take over a family empire and bring unity to a family at war with itself, while hiding a deadly secret that can tear the whole family apart. It is this concealed lie that sets into motion a series of events that will see Harriet battling forces that are out to destroy the life she has grown accustomed to.”
The Queen joins a slew of recent productions from The Fergusons Films stable.
Set in the contrasting worlds of the rich in Waterfall Estate and the middle-class of Tembisa, The Queen strips bare the insatiable lust for power amongst the wealthy and the victims that find themselves at their mercy. It also uncovers the power struggles women are faced with in business and at home, due to cultural practices and beliefs.
“Women are powerful beings. They can build empires, make homes and with the same passion that they can build, they can also tear everything apart. This new telenovela will not only expose the flaws and weaknesses of the powerful – but will also hold a mirror up to society by posing the question: How far are humans willing to go to protect their livelihood and what they believe to be rightfully theirs?” said Reneilwe Sema, Head of Drama at M-Net for Local Entertainment Channels in a statement.
The show also features an impressive ensemble cast with the likes of Sello Maake Ka-Ncube, Sthembiso “SK” Khoza, Natasha Thahane, Mara Louw, Themba Ndaba, Shona Ferguson, Mbali Nkosi, Dineo Moeketsi, Loyiso MacDonald, Zenzo Ngqobe, Zandile Msutwana and Slindile Nodangala.
The Queen will debut on Monday, 1 August 2016 at 21:00 on Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161).
