This January, Mzansi Magic will premiere its latest show in the Sunday prime time slot, Killer Front Page, a suspenseful new show that challenges ambition, ethics, and cold-blooded murder. Produced by Barkers Media – who produced the drama How to Manifest a Man – this series will add the drama which is synonymous with Sunday evenings on Mzansi Magic.
What lies at the center of Killer Front Page is Sol Mojalefa Phiri, played by Lemogang Tsipa, a journalist whose stale career takes an unexpected turn. Affected by his father’s disappearance and motivated by a childhood promise to become the best in his field, Sol’s desperation for recognition makes him fabricate a front-page story.
The show follows the ups and downs of Sol, who, on the way to journalistic greatness, becomes involved in a web of lies, crime, and unexpected romance. His rivalry with colleague Black Gert, played by Emmanuel Gweva, and his clash with detective Sis Connie, played by Linda Sokhulu, deepen the drama, driving a suspenseful story.
As Sol’s articles gain him respect and fame, his relationships and values spiral out of control, leading to a consequence that is as unexpected as it is inevitable. DStv Compact subscribers will be left wondering: Just how far can one go to achieve a dream?
“With this series, we are delving into new spaces as far as productions are concerned, with the aim of not only entertaining, but also setting trends,” says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels. “We hope that this will bring some more drama and intrigue to our Sunday night line-up and will be appreciated by our Mzansi audiences.”
Tune in to Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) for the premiere of Killer Front Page on Sunday, 14 January at 8pm, and witness the tense yet surprisingly entertaining story of Sol Mojalefa Phiri on your home of local. You can also catch it on DStv Catch Up or you can stream it on DStv Stream anywhere
