Judas Kiss is a South African television drama series which revolves around a limelight-loving businessman who turns his construction company into a reality show, betraying his architect wife, who in turn seeks revenge on him.
Judas Muhali (Marcus Mabusela) is the charming, street-smart husband to architect Nandi (Angela Sithole) and the brand manager of their construction business.
He spins Nandi's architectural designs into garnering building contracts worth millions.
As part of a strategy to make sure the company is the talk of the town (and aided by his love of the spotlight), Marcus turns the business into a reality show, propelling them to the status of celebrity power couple.
Nandi, however, is the opposite of her attention-seeking husband - she does everything by the book and hates the limelight.
The Muhali family, including son Mulaifa (Karabo Oberem) and daughter Gugulethu (Andile Masia), finds themselves in the spotlight from the outside world after Judas lands a contract to design and build a a house for the owner of a major soccer club.
Amidst all this, Nandi catches Marcus in a compromising position with none other than her sister Zamazulu (Mbalenhle Mavimbela), who has betrayed her in the worst possible way.
The Muhali home is turned into a war zone as Nandi prepares and serves her husband the one meal best served cold: revenge...
Other cast members in the series include Kabelo Moalusi, Cedric Fourie, Makhosazana Ndlovu, Hastings Muravha and Hayley Owen.
Judas Kiss was created by Kelton Sinyosi and directed by Norman Maake.
The head writer is Ayanda Halimana with a writing team including Nontuthuzelo Magoxo, Fidel Namisi, Lentsoe Serote, Zola Hlungwani and Kelton Sinyosi.
