About the Show

Agent is a South African comedy-drama television series which revolves around a former footballer who tries to make it as a player agent in the world of African soccer, carrying a secret from his past which threatens to destroy everything.

The series is a take on the business end of soccer as seen through the eyes of fierce, mercurial football agent Slindile "Blaze" Magoba (Kay Sibiya), who is wrestling with a fatal secret he buried six years ago, on the brink of breaking big or losing everything.

Blaze is a former professional football player whose career ended prematurely due to an injury. He has since reinvented himself as a football agent who actually cares about his clients.

Agent is set in the concrete jungle of modern day Johannesburg and is powered by a soundscape that includes vintage '70s funk, psychedelic alternative ballads and contemporary African and South African hip hop.

The series explores the kind of wheeling and dealing that goes on in the modern game, how sociopathic rival agents, megalomaniac club owners, scheming professional football players and their gold-digging football wags, compromised club managers, and duplicitous witch-doctors, shamelessly hustle and negotiate inside the corridors of world football power.

Agent also stars Sisanda Henna as Lesego 'Ace' Moleko, the biggest striker in the country with an ego that knows no bounds. He wears the number 9 shirt and his personalised numberplate reads "God".

He is Blaze's number one client, but also his biggest headache as he lurches from one scandal to the next.

Anthony Oseyemi plays Christopher Kilembe, the most powerful sports lawyer. He is ruthless, relentless and always at the top of his game.

The cast also included Pamela Nomvete as Godi Zulu, Zweli Dube as Phumlani Mbebe, Tarryn Wyngaard as Nathalie Isaacs, Makgotso M as Delilah Skosana, Paballo Moganedi as Kim Moyo and Owen Sejake as Walter Mbebe.

Others cast members include Manie Malone as Nina Sankara, Thabo Malema as Vuyo Moyo, Robert Mpisi as Monte Skosana, Virgile Bramly as Jean-Pierre Yasbeck, Yannick Konan as Herve Toure, Michaella Russell as Mila Dior, Vinaya Sungkur as Jade Singh, Sarah Kozlowski as Zoe Zante and Gabriella Cirillo as Jackie East.

Agent was created and written by Athos Kyriakides and is a co-production between Cinebar Studios, CANAL+ International and Collective Dream Studios. The executive producers are Danie Halgryn and Andrea Habermeyer.

Producers include Jeremy Nathan, Cécile Gerardin, Michelle Wheatley and Rudy Halgryn.

Directors include Athos Kyriakides, Sean Els and Jon Rabaud and the writing team includes Athos Kyriakides, Nonzi Bogatsu, Elan Gamaker and Salah Sabiti.

The original score and sound design is by Alex Joseph.
