The long-awaited High Rollers, SABC3’s riveting new local drama series, debuts tomorrow (April 2) at 20h30. The new 26-part drama series, created by the Rous House Production team of producing and directing brothers Luke and Josh Rous, is the first to be commissioned by the channel for a number of years.

High Rollers features A-list stars of stage and screen led by Brümilda van Rensburg, Justin Strydom, Antony Coleman, Rolanda Marais, Fezile Mpela, Xolile Tshabalala, Carmel Fisher, Carine Rous and Vilje Maritz and is set against the backdrop of the glamorous and backstabbing world of gambling.

The series is an inter-generational family drama centring on three “brothers” – the Machiavellian casino kingpin David (Coleman), his flawed and volatile older brother Paul (Strydom) and David’s trusted right-hand man Thato “TT” Mogale (Mpela) – who are divided by their love for money, family and God.

“SABC3 is extremely excited to be advancing the public broadcaster’s proud tradition of quality English television drama with this exceptional new series,” says Risuna Mayimele, SABC3’s Marketing Manager.
