M-Net’s Trackers debuts June 5, Exclusively On CINEMAX.
An adaptation of internationally acclaimed author Deon Meyer’s crime novel, Trackers, shot entirely in South Africa premieres Friday, 5 June, on Cinemax (US).
Trackers deftly interweaves three story strands into a sophisticated action-packed thriller that covers the length and breadth of the country, explosively colliding in Cape Town in a violent conspiracy involving organized crime, smuggled diamonds, state security, black rhinos, the CIA and an international terrorist plot.
Master wordsmith Deon Meyer, whose multiple-award-winning crime novels have been translated into more than 20 languages, with millions of copies sold worldwide, serves as a supervising screenwriter and co-producer; British writer Robert Thorogood (Death in Paradise) is the showrunner. The team of South African writers on the project included the accomplished Mitchell’s Plain playwright, screenwriter and director Amy Jephta as well as local writer/directors Kelsey Egen and Jozua Malherbe.
Trackers stars proudly South African actors James Gracie, Rolanda Marais, Sandi Schultz, Brendon Daniels, Trix Vivier, Thapelo Mokoena, and Sisanda Henna, as well as UK actor Ed Stoppard. This hit series performed well on M-Net 101 in October/November last year and is currently available for South African viewers to watch on Showmax.
