M-Net's hit show Trackers makes its debut in the US on Friday, 5 June on Cinemax.
The exhilarating five-part series, based on the book by Deon Meyer, weaves together various storylines that focus on black rhinos, the CIA, organised crime, diamond smuggling, state security and an international terrorist plot to attack Cape Town.
Locally the show – which is available on Showmax - shattered viewership records to become the most popular show on M-Net in 2019.
The series filmed entirely in South Africa is a co-production between M-Net and Cinemax, which is HBO's sister network, and the German broadcaster ZDF.
Trackers stars James Gracie, Thapelo Mokoena, Rolanda Marais, Brendan Daniels, Sandi Schultz, Sisanda Henna, Jill Middelkop, Trix Vivier, Jerry Mofokeng, Grace Olifant, Albert Maritz and Ed Stoppard.
"Beyond enjoying an exciting and compelling drama, US audiences are going to be treated to stunning visuals and soundscapes, the likes of which they've not seen before. Trackers showcases the vibrant, eclectic cultural mix that epitomises South Africa. The landscapes, cityscapes, languages and music make Trackers a feast for the eyes and ears of international viewers," says James Gracie who plays Lemmer.
Trix Vivier, who plays Flea, adds: "Thrilled that a US audience can share in South African storytelling at its best - through the thriller-political-narrative of Deon Meyer that so paradoxically exposes our cultures and underworld crime scenes."
