Legacy is a South African telenovela which follows the wealthy Price household, a family at war with itself after the patriarch announces he is stepping down, creating a power vacuum.
An upmarket investment empire was established by Sebastian Price (Deon Lotz), the patriarch of the super-wealthy Price family, decades ago, when he was in his early twenties.
Now he is a silver fox approaching retirement and it is clear that a family member will soon have to take over the reins. But who will it be? And, at what cost?
Sebastian's bitter ex-wife and ruthless first-born daughter will do whatever it takes to ensure that Sebastian's second wife, Dineo, does not push her playboy son into the position of CEO.
The power struggle turns nasty. A witches' brew of betrayal, secrets, lies and revenge.
Stepping into the roles of the current Mrs Price - Dineo - is Kgomotso Christopher; while Sebastian's ex-wife Angelique, a former lawyer who is now a woman of leisure, is played by Michelle Botes.
Mary-anne Barlow plays Felicity, Sebastian's eldest daughter - the villain everybody loves to hate. Felicity has a firm eye on the CEO position in her dad's upmarket investment company.
But first, she has to deal with a complicated hurdle, the only male heir to the Legacy Investments throne: SJ (Anton David Jeftha), Elizabeth's problematic playboy half-brother.
Felicity and SJ are not the only Price siblings, however. Sebastian has three daughters from his first wife: Felicity, Elisabeth and Alexandra, better known as Lexi.
Middle sister Elisabeth is played by Reandi Grey, while Jay Anstey takes on the role of Lexi, the youngest Price sister.
Fun-loving, care-free Lexi is the complete opposite of her two older siblings. She was barely a toddler when her parents divorced, and, not surprisingly, she always finds herself compelled to take her mother's side in quibbles and disagreements.
Middle sister Elisabeth is the calmer and most organised one out of the sisters. When in doubt or crisis, the Price family always rely on Elisabeth to make things happen.
The counterpoint to the Price family is the down-to-Earth Potgieter family faced with the harsh realities of staying afloat against a tide drama and disappointments.
Patriarch Willem Potgieter (played by Dawid Minnaar) is a recovering alcoholic who bears the scars of the Border War, which drove him to the bottle.
His ego is bruised, his future looks bleak and, having lost his job as a technician at the energy company, he couldn't ensure optimum care for his wife after she was admitted to a public hospital with terminal breast cancer.
But the explosive drama that follows is sparked by Willem's son and daughter, Stefan (Sean-Marco Vorster) and Petra (Trix Vivier), whose lives become entwined with those of the Prices.
Sexy and dangerous Stefan left the police force under odd circumstances and is now working as Sebastian Price's limo driver.
Petra is beautiful, young, idealistic and, in the parlance of our times, "woke"... and jobless.
While following the life and times of the super-wealthy Price family and the down-to-Earth Potgieters, much of the drama and intrigue will play out at the Price's elite investment company.
Siyabonga Thwala plays Msizi Zulu, an ambitious board member who also is the head honcho at Legacy Media and L24 News.
Like Felicity – the company founder's opportunistic daughter - Msizi also has his eye on the coveted position of CEO. Felicity should take note, because nothing will stop him from landing his dream job.
In the role of Nirvana Perumal - Legacy's sharp, witty and tough Investment board chairperson – is Leeanda Reddy.
John, the longest serving employee at the company – in fact, the guy who was there when the doors opened – is brought to life by Don Mlangeni Nawa.
Legacy is an M-Net Original Production created, written and executive produced by Phathu Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon and produced by Tshedza Pictures.
Storyliners include Gillian Breslin, Daniel Buckland, Caroline Kganyago-Relefeta and Sue Nyathi. The directors are Johnny Barbuzano, Krijay Govender, Catharine Cooke and Gwydion Beynon.
