From the creators of Scandal! comes e.tv’s hot new drama series, Harvest. Based on the premise of three strong women in a ‘man’s world’, Harvest covers all the aspects of family, love and betrayal in a cutthroat illegal business sector.
The explosive drama series, follows the story of three women, Celia, Clementine and Tshepiso who are forced to take over an illegal business when their husbands are tragically murdered. The wives (now Widows) have to continue running the illegal business, which is under the guise of a global frozen foods empire.
Viewers will also see the likes of Muzi Mathebula as Richard, a man who harbours a deep secret, Mutodi Neshehe as Mandla, Celia’s lousy husband, Simphiwe Mini as Zimba, Clementine’s genial and loving husband and Nat Ramabulana as Mxolisi, Tshepiso’s newly ‘acquired husband’.
MEET THE CAST
Celia ( Masasa Mbageni)
The Anti-Hero and CEO: Celia Mahlamvu Jele (30s) was born in the Eastern Cape. She’s feisty, and in her youth, crossed many lines that she kept from her husband in order to keep the family afloat. She bribed cops, slept with criminals and did whatever she had to, to keep the wheels turning. It was worth it - or so she thought - because it meant Mandla, her husband, got his MBA, and then with the help of some unlikely friends, they built an international business.
Clementine (Vatiswa Ndara)
Clementine Mfona (40s) is an opinionated, strong-willed woman, set in her ways, and capable of bearing long grudges. Her hard exterior hides a loving heart, though. She’s based in the Eastern Cape and though she appears to be ‘just a farm girl’, she’s hard as nails with a wry sense of humour and a vicious and violent past. Clementine is Celia’s closest ally, but if she can be turned against her, she will become her greatest enemy.
Tshepiso (Khanya Mkangisa)
Tshepiso Ndlovu is in her 20’S. She’s the gorgeous trophy wife whose grief for her husband, and realization of her own lack of independence, nearly leads to her death. A startling realisation makes her fight for her place amongst the new business partners in an attempt to hold onto her husband’s legacy. She doesn’t know she’s been lied to, and what the business is truly about - and Celia keeps it that way by putting her in charge of CSI.
Richard (Muzi Mathebula)
Charming, strong, sensual, muscular and dangerous, Richard’s not a family man, but has a failed marriage and an estranged son. He has known Celia, and her deceased husband, for a long time. He enters our series as a mysterious force of destruction, but as time passes, we learn how he fits into the puzzle of everyone’s lives, why he has come for revenge, and what he truly loves and desires.
Lizzie (Petronella Tshuma)
Lizzy is an enigma. She has a chameleon-like personality, but harbours a secret that drives her violent, erratic and dangerously crazy behaviour. She cons her way into the business, becoming the daughter Celia never had, but always there for one plan: revenge. When she realises Celia’s regrets, can Lizzie ever forgive? Or see how similar she and Celia truly are?
Harvest will premiere on Monday, 1 May 2017 at 9:30PM on e.tv and eHD.
