Phathu Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon produced the South African television series The River. It's an M-Net original produced by Tshedza Pictures for DStv's general entertainment subscription channel 1Magic, and it's accessible to watch on Showmax, Naspers' subscription-based video-on-demand service. Reruns began showing on Mzansi Magic in 2019 at 19:00 on weekdays (Monday through Friday). Sindi Dlathu, the show's lead actress, was named co-executive producer for the show's fourth season in 2021.
The drama series is set in Pretoria, South Africa, against the backdrop of the country's mining industry. A diamond discovery in the river that runs through the impoverished hamlet of Refilwe and the luxurious Silver Lakes neighborhood swiftly becomes a curse.
The River follows Khanyisa Diamonds mine owner Lindiwe Dlamini-Dikana, who is vicious and calculated, and the lengths to which she will go to protect her family and maintain her opulent lifestyle. Lindiwe Dikana is the mother of Andile and Mbali Dikana and the stepmother of Nomonde Dikana. She is married to provincial police commissioner Zweli Dikana. In Pretoria East, South Africa, the Dikanas live in a mansion.
Poverty-stricken citizens dwell in the township of Refilwe, where Khanyisa Diamonds is located, and many of them work at the mine. Malefu Mokoena and her three children, Thuso, Dimpho, and Itumeleng, live in Refilwe with their family.
Seriti Films' Gomora is a South African television drama series. It's an M-Net original production for Mzansi Magic, M-local Net's interest channel. Isthembiso, which was not renewed for a fourth season, will be replaced by the drama series. The series depicts the narrative of two families with two very different lifestyles, and how a catastrophe brings their lives together. The series is set in the Alexandra municipality, which gives the show its name. Mzansi Magic's Gomora airs Monday through Friday at 19h30.
The series follows two families: one of a guy who has amassed wealth and success by unlawful methods through a bank he runs, and the other of a well-respected community leader who is struggling to make ends meet. In a botched hijacking attempt, their two worlds intersect, sending their worlds into a total downward spiral.
The series explores social and economic issues, as well as the inequality between lower and upper-class elements of South African society, with their contrast brought to life through one of the most inventive filmmaking approaches.
