TELEVISION channel Mzansi Magic has announced its new drama series, The Station coming this April starring some of SA's creme de la creme as its cast including Sello Maake Ka Ncube, Lerato Mvelase, Siphamandla Ndhludhlu and Ernest Ndlovu.
The new series will see power dynamics come to play between employees who suddenly become shareholders of a filling station left by its owner Don [Legendary Owen Sejake] to his four employees. A lot of scheming and backstabbing comes into play as they all try to take control of the station. But a clash of personalities and them working against each other threatens to destroy the legacy left by Don, their ex-boss who was known as a successful businessman with a passion for giving back to the community.
“This is a classic South African story. Everyday people find themselves inheriting fortunes from their bosses or family members and the defining factor is how they are able to navigate through their easily acquired riches,” says Nomsa Philiso, the Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
“What makes this drama series a must watch is that despite its non-stop action, plotting and twists and turns, viewers will be exposed to content that someone around them, be it a relative, friend or neighbour, has had to live through. With the gripping storyline and an impressive cast, this promises to be one of the hottest dramas to premiere this April,” she concludes.
The show will also see actor Siphamandla Ndhludhlu star as Ceasar, a young man determined to see the business succeed to improve his socio-economic conditions and support his father Themba [Ernest Ndlovu], who is wheelchair-bound. But with Diliza [Aubrey Mmakola] threatening to take control of the filling station and run it to the ground, will Cynthia [Lerato Mvelase], Fix [Sello Maake Ka Nncube] and Ceasar be able to stop him?
Watch this 13-part drama series on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) starting Monday, April 2021 at 20:00 CAT.
