Season 1

Arsenaal is a South African, Afrikaans-language thriller drama television series created, written and directed by Jan Scholtz and produced by his production company Scholtz Films which is set against the backdrop of investigative journalism, corrupt security companies and corrupt police.

The series tells the story of Jack Degenaar (Ian Roberts), an African-liberal professor and publisher of non-fiction books who suddenly becomes the prime suspect in a murder case.

Degenaar's problems begin when he is approached by Mike Winchester (Gys de Villiers), a dubious writer who has written a book exposing the criminal activities of a security firm, Transworld Security.

He also has to take the safety of his ex-wife, Addie Muller (Elzette Maarschalk), into account, as she is a journalist with a sixth sense when it comes to trouble and is determined to prove that her former husband has nothing to do with the sinister charges laid against him.

The 10-episode series features an ensemble cast that includes Ian Roberts (Degenaar), Elzette Maarschalk (Addie), Gys de Villiers (Winchester), Lieb Bester (Lindeque), Dirk Stoltz (Potgieter), Joe da Silva (Sonja), Marcel van Heerden (Valken), Nic de Jager (Niemoller), Paul Lückhoff (Bekker), Richard van der Westhuizen (Blake), Barbara Marie Venter (Splint), Shirley Ellis (Malherbe), Abri le Roux (Bach), Leon van Nierop (Radio News Reader) and George Ballot (Brooks).

The series is in Afrikaans with English subtitles.

Arsenaal was created, written, directed and executive produced by Jan Scholtz and for his production company Scholtz Films. The supervising producer was Rosa Keet.
