Daily Sun inspires new supernatural TV series

2012-10-04 07:13

A new South African television series drawing on supernatural events is set to start soon.

The Times reported that “Room 9”, a 13-part-show, will premiere on SABC 1 on November 8 at 8:30pm and be televised every Thursday.

The show details eerie happenings, including domestic workers being killed by tokoloshes and cases investigated by detectives with extra-sensory perception.

The show was shot in Industria, Johannesburg, earlier this year.

It is set in the New Azania police department, which solves supernatural cases other units have rejected.

Screen veteran Darrell Roodt said the series was set in the future, and that stories in the Daily Sun newspaper had inspired him to write it.

» Daily Sun is a sister paper of City Press.
