Troy: Fall of a City

A visceral retelling of the fall of Troy in eight parts, written by David Farr, who wrote the award-winning adaptation of The Night Manager.

Told from the perspective of the Trojan family at the heart of the siege, Troy: Fall of a City is an epic story of love, intrigue, betrayal and belonging.

Combining thrilling adventure with heart-breaking intimacy, it explores primal emotions, the psychological repercussions of human actions and life-changing decisions amid the devastation and destruction of war.

Following a fateful encounter with the gods, the life of young herdsman Paris changes forever. At the Troy city games he discovers something extraordinary about himself.

Then, on a trip to Sparta as a guest of Menelaus and Helen, he falls in love, with unpredictable and far-reaching consequences - provoking a conflict that threatens to bring an empire to its knees.

The series was filmed in Cape Town and features a number of local actors including Shamilla Miller, Christiaan Schoombie, Carl Beukes, Waldemar Schultz, Lemogang Tsipa, Peter Butler, Danny Keogh, Nina Milner, Jonathan Pienaar, Sivan Raphaely, Grant Swanby, Joe Vaz, Dorothy Ann Gould, Melissa Haiden, Pierre Malherbe, Bongo Mbutuma, Rea Rangaka and Erica Wessels.
