Season 1

Top Actor SA (renamed Top Actor Africa for Season 2) is a South African reality competition series produced by Urban Brew Studios in partnership with Samad Davis, in which 12 up-and-coming actors compete in weekly challenges to win a career-launching prize package and the title of "Top Actor SA".

BET handpicked 12 actors in the country to battle it out on camera in front of big industry names from Hollywood and South Africa. At stake? The chance to win the title "Top Actor SA" and a prize package that includes R100,000, international management representation and a professional role in an upcoming South Africa television/movie production.

The contestants will have to show guts and determination to get through a series of themed challenges as the judges test their acting skills in key acting disciplines from Romance to Horror, Comedy, Soap, Action, Theatre and more.

Living under one roof, there will be drama in the house and on the screen as the contestants compete against each other in grueling acting challenges, all while facing the grim prospect of elimination every week.

The executive producer of the series is Samad Davis, with series producer Camilla Andersen. The series director was Justin Pavlova-Hawkes.
