Season 1

Kings of Jo'burg is a South African fantasy action drama web series which follows the Masire brothers who rule the crime-ridden streets of the city of Johannesburg.

The Masire brothers rule Johannesburg's criminal underworld, but a supernatural family curse and a tangled web of betrayal threaten to destroy them.

Shona Ferguson stars as Simon "Vader" Masire, a member of the KOJ brotherhood and the eldest of the Masire siblings.

As the smoother and charming brother, prolific businessman Simon leads the family business. However, under the lavish suits and ties is a man hiding a deep dark secret.

Zolisa Xaluva portrays the role of Mogomotsi "Mo" Masire, Simon's young brother and an ex-convict who finds himself having to choose between the life that got him in jail, and honouring his responsibilities to the legacy of a crime family and older brother he loves.

Joining the ensemble cast is TK Sebothoma as the spoilt and privileged Tlotlo Masire; Buhle Samuels as the gorgeous and supportive wife to Simon, Angela Masire; and Tsholofelo Matshaba as the straight-talking detective who's obsessed with bringing down the Kings of Joburg.

Adding to the cast is SK Khoza as Cyrus, Abdul Khoza as Lester, Nnekwa Tsajwa as Sting and Cindy Mahlangu as Phumzi.

The six-part series delves into legacy building, fragmented family structures, treacherous brotherhoods and the effects of crime and African masculinities on families and society at large.

Loyalties will be tested, with long held secrets threatening to shatter the fragile facade.

Kings of Jo'burb was created and executive produced by Shona Ferguson, with Ferguson Films. Samad Davis and Connie Ferguson are also executive producers.

The first episode was directed by Andries van der Merwe. Story development is by Shona Ferguson and Linda Bere.

The title theme and original score is by Joel Assaizky.
