"Legacy is a show about the beautiful, the truthful and the ugly of South Africa today," creator and executive producer Phathu Makwarela tells Channel24's TV editor Leandra Engelbrecht during a Zoom interview.

On Monday, 21 September M-Net's daily telenovela Legacy launches; it's the channel's first one in years, a fact that didn't escape Phatu and his writing partner, Gwydion Beynon, when they first pitched to the broadcaster.

The writing duo is behind Tshedza Pictures and together their writing credits include Igazi, Muvhango, Jacob's Cross, Zone 14, Skeem Saam, The Queen, Rockville and Uzalo.
