Code 13

Drama series which follows a detective tasked with rounding up escaped convicts, only to be baulked by crime, corruption and betrayal at the highest level.

Set in the gritty heart of Joburg, Code 13 follows the story of Bheki Ndlovu (Zolisa Xaluva), a no-nonsense Jozi detective with a knack for connecting the dots and solving complex cases.

Together with a hard-edged police unit, he is tasked with recapturing six of the city's most dangerous criminals who escaped while in custody from a police van.

However, this already challenging case presents him with hurdle after hurdle at every turn as his efforts reveal a web of corruption, betrayal, and secrets at the very top.

Moreover, Bheki's work life is not the only one that seems to be 'adventure-packed', but his personal life plays a significant role as he tries to balance the two, especially when his love interest turns out to be a colleague.

The big question is: can Bheki trust his team of over-qualified and egotistical law enforcers to recapture this group of dangerous escapees and expose a web of corruption that reaches the highest levels of power before the city descends into irreversible chaos?

The series also stars Lunathi Mampofu as Bongi Nkosi, a police detective and Bheki's love interest; Aluve Mjali as Marcus 'Mamba' Moagi, a highly skilled hacker; and Primo Baloyi as Veli 'Veja' Mohalanyane, who is deeply connected to the community - which makes him a reliable informant.

Other cast members in the series include Zikhona Bali as Azania, Saint Seseli as Patrick and Thami Mngqolo as Dr Pitso.

Code 13 is produced by Seriti Films.

Die Fakulteit

Sitcom revolving around a group of stereotypical characters from school who grew up to become the same characters, this time in charge of a school.

The story was inspired by the question: "Where are the real adults?"

These are the typical high school movie archetypes - the jock, the nerd, the hot girl, the dreamer and the unlikely best friend.

Fast forward 10 years and these characters are still grappling with the same challenges, now finding themselves as incapable adults.

Suddenly, they are thrust into positions of authority as the faculty of an entire school, setting the stage for the narrative.

Taking place in a fictional high school in the vibrant city of modern-day Johannesburg, this setting presents a myriad of hurdles for the characters to overcome.

Die Fakulteit is produced by Coolerbox Brothers, with executive producers Marno Koen and Michael van Zyl.

The series is directed by George van Rooyen.
