Molefi Lebone, executive producer, says that e.tv is committed to exposing new talent in quality local shows. “Imbewu: The Seed features new talent from KwaZulu-Natal that we know will make an impact on our television screens,” he says.
“The move to have these fresh faces share the screen with iconic industry veterans is one which assures the future of South Africa’s acting talent pool”.
This is the story:
One side of the Bhengu family has been keeping a secret from the other for many years, with treachery and tumult never more than a step away.
Brothers Ngcolosi and Phakade are both honourable men, but one will feel betrayed when he learns of a deep secret that could leave a stain on the legacy he hopes to leave for his four children.
The potential fallout is certain to provoke controversial questions about values and legacies, relevant to all South African cultures.
The world of Imbewu: The Seed is a reflection of the unique interaction between rural and urban lifestyles in South Africa.
It will also showcase the struggles and conflicts between home and corporate settings and the emotional tension created by the economic gap between the haves and the have-nots.
