Season 1

Killer Front Page is a South African television drama series which revolves around a journalist who fabricates a front page story in order to boost his flagging career.

The suspenseful series challenges ambition, ethics and cold-blooded murder.

At the centre of the series is Sol Mojalefa Phiri (Lemogang Tsipa), a journalist whose stale career takes an unexpected turn.

Affected by his father's disappearance and motivated by a childhood promise to become the best in his field, Sol's desperation for recognition makes him fabricate a front page story.

The show follows the ups and downs of Sol, who, on the way to journalistic greatness, becomes involved in a web of lies, crime and unexpected romance.

His rivalry with colleague Black Gert (Emmanuel Gweva) and his clash with detective Sis Connie (Linda Sokhulu) deepen the drama.

As Sol's articles gain him respect and fame, his relationships and values spiral out of control, leading to a consequence that is as unexpected as it is inevitable.

The narrative will leave you wondering: just how far can one go to achieve a dream?

Killer Front Page was created by Thulani Mahlangu and is produced by Barkers Media and Grandja Productions.

The executive producers are Thulani Mahlangu, Reneilwe Sema and Mpho Lengane.

The head writer is Shitshembiso Mabasa. Directors include Twiggy Matiwana and Sandile Mdluli.

Original music was composed by Ngwatainmnent. The title theme song music was composed by Lwanda Gogwana.
