Mzansi Magic Welcomes The Road

A new telenovela, THE ROAD, filled with Mzansi talents such as Muzi Mthabela, Nandi Ngoma, Tsholofelo Maseko, Moneoa Moshesh, Solomon Sebothoma, Sithembiso Khoza, Gail Mabalane, Neo Ntlatleng, Sthandiwe Kgoroge and many more will grace our screen at the end of August.

Paying tribute to the legendary sounds of the 50’s that gave South Africa some of its greatest musicians and most admired talents, contrasted with present day sounds, fashion and lifestyle is what THE ROAD aims to do.

Moving between iconic, ill-fated 1950’s era colliding with the energy of modern day Jozi, THE ROAD weaves a tantalising tale of past and present. An epic love story and a series of mysterious deaths collide when an evocative book written from the memories of an old man leads to the silver screen. And so begins THE ROAD.

M-Net Director for Local Interest Channels Nkateko Mabaso says “This is a major milestone for us.” THE ROAD is produced for Mzansi Magic by The Bomb Shelter.

Tune in for THE ROAD, August 2015, exclusive to Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161). For more information, visit
