Season 1

eKasi: Our Stories features five aspirational, gritty local dramas.

Set in Soweto, a township bristling with economic optimism, the dramas reflect the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the community using a backdrop of strong township vigor and visual texture.

The dramas capture many moments which define day to day township experiences. They are told from authentic township settings which have been etched in the collective memory of many South Africans.

The five-week schedule was filmed at various locations in Soweto by Seleke Communications. According to writer and director Vusi Twala, shooting the dramas in a township environment "allowed us to explore a wealth of images in telling socially relevant stories which are uniquely South African, yet universally appealing."

The dramas - Secret Lovers, Mama's Boy, Abducted, A Good Wife and Chasing the Truth - explore the challenges emerging through the pain of a complex and fragmented society. The stories weave in elements of greed, jealousy, societal values, cultural and gender issues.

The series features several well-known South African actors including Magic Hlatshwayo (Samuel in Mama's Boy), Treasure Tshabalala (Uncle Godfrey in Mama's Boy), Carol Behane (Portia in Secret Lovers), Owen Sejake (Tony in Chasing the Truth) and Ernest Ndlovu (Kate's father on A Good Wife).

All five Season 1 dramas were written and directed by Vusi Twala and produced by Seleke Communications.
