e.tv broadcasts a new local daily drama, Imbewu: The Seed. The tv series portrays how in a modern society which worships wealth and rewards ruthless acts of power, the Bhengu family must live in the shadow of a potent secret stemming from ancient traditional practice.
The show features a host of new local talent, alongside icons Leleti Khumalo and Thembi Mtshali-Jones. One of the families central to the plot of the shows is the Bhengu family, comprising Leleti Khumalo, Thembi Mtshali-Jones and Mpumelelo Bhulose amongst other local stars.
Molefe Lebone, the 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.”
Imbewu: The Seed is produced by Grapevine Productions, which is a joint venture between Anant Singh’s Videovision Entertainment, Duma Ndlovu’s Word Of Mouth Pictures and Luyks Productions.
