Filming has wrapped on the Showmax Original Dam, a small-town psychological thriller shot in the Eastern Cape.
Lea Vivier (Wonderlus, Fynskrif) stars as Yola Fischer, who returns from Chile to the Eastern Cape to bury her father, only to be tormented by spirits in the farmhouse she has inherited. But with her mother institutionalised, and her meds running out, Yola has to wonder if the spirits are real or just in her head?
Pallance Dladla (Shadow, Isibaya) co-stars as Themba, her love interest, a biker on the run.
Neil Sandilands returned from Hollywood for the series - his first South African role since 2013's Die Ballade Van Robbie De Wee.
"It's the story of a family - and a town - with dark secrets, and about how what you push down will eventually rise up," says Alex Yazbek (The Wild, Unmarried, Isibaya), a four-time SAFTA winner who is writing and directing the eight-part series.
