Hot off the heels of their crime-thriller film, Collision, Netflix has more entertainment in store for Mzansi. The streaming giant’s upcoming thriller series titled Justice Served is set to star some of Mzansi’s top actors including The River star Hlomla Dandala.
In the upcoming six-part series, Justice Served, South Africans are called on to decide the fate of a white man, Allan Harve, who is accused of killing a young black man. Local citizens only have a few hours to vote for his execution or exoneration.
The series is described as a “high-stakes drama” that unfolds in a hijacked courtroom while tensions and conflict fills the streets of South Africa which threatens to divide the country, families and friends.
Justice Served, set to premiere on 29 July, comes after Netflix’s successful titles Savage Beauty, Young Famous & African and Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star.
