Description

Zero Tolerance is a South African police procedural television series which follows the adventures of an elite crime-fighting police unit similar to the Scorpions.

The series is based on over four years of research and development into crime and crime fighting in South Africa.

Zero Tolerance's heroine, Denzela Ledwaba, played by Moshidi Motshegwa, is a young, charismatic woman determined to make a difference.

But she is also human, complex and believable, a single mother struggling to save her disintegrating marriage and to make the right emotional choices for herself and her son.

Other than tackling crime, relevant issues like racial intolerance and family problems are also dealt with.

Creative input during the development of the series was given by two of America's most influential, Emmy-award winning writers - David Simon and David Mills - who have written and produced for Homicide: Life on the Street, NYPD Blue, ER, The Corner and Picket Fences.

The series was nominated for an International Emmy Award in 2004. It also received 12 drama nominations at the inaugural South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs) in 2006, winning two: Best Actress (Moshidi Motshegwa) and Best Cinematographer (Trevor Brown).

Zero Tolerance was co-created by Sara and Hilary Blecher, co-developed by Indra de Lanerolle and produced by Ochre Moving Pictures and Cinga Productions. The executive series producer was Hilary Blecher and the executive producer was Indra de Lanerolle. The executive producer for SABC2 was Rosa Keet. The composer was Philip Miller.
