About the Show

The Queen is a South African telenovela created and produced by Ferguson Films about a dedicated wife, mother and successful businesswoman who is forced to do the unthinkable when her husband's secret comes to light.

Harriet Khoza (Connie Ferguson) has lived her whole life as a spoiled trophy wife, but tragedy strikes her family and she is forced to take over a family empire and bring unity to a family at war with itself, whilst hiding a deadly secret that can tear the whole family apart.

It is this concealed lie that sets into motion a series of events that will see Harriet battling forces that are out to destroy the life she has grown accustomed to.

Produced by Fergusons Films and set in the contrasting worlds of the rich in Waterfall and the middle-class of Tembisa, The Queen strips bare the insatiable lust for power amongst the wealthy and the victims that find themselves at their mercy.

It also uncovers the power struggles women are faced with in business and at home, due to cultural practices and beliefs.

The series not only exposes the flaws and weaknesses of the powerful, but also holds a mirror up to society by posing the question: How far are humans willing to go to protect their livelihood and what they believe to be rightfully theirs?

Created by Ferguson Films, The Queen is executive produced by Connie Ferguson and Shona Ferguson, with producers Lauren Nell and Amanda Quwe. The pilot episode was written by Phathu Makwarela and directed by Andries van der Merwe. Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon are the series head writers. The theme music and score is by Joel Assaizky.
