M-Net Improves Drama Stable With 'Legacy' - A New Telenovela
Multichoice M-Net is bringing onboard a new telenovela called "Legacy" in a bid to drive-up content on its drama stable. The show will be flighted on its South Africa channel from September 2020.
M-Net Channels director, Mr Jan du Plessis welcomed Legacy, saying it is the first time in as many years that M-Net has had a daily drama on. He described the telenovela as a cross between the HBO's show 'Succession' and 'The Bold and The Beautiful."
Produced by Tshedza Pictures, Legacy's storyline is around Sebastian Price, the wealthy founder of a successful investment empire who, about to retire, goes into the dilemma of succession - leading to plots and twist of power struggles, betrayals and acts of revenge.
Created by Gwydion Beyno and Phathu Makwarela from Tshedza Pictures, the telenovela is directed by Krijay Govender, Catharine Cooke and Johnny Barbuzano. M-net promises that Legacy - full of top-flight, talented stars - will retain a long-lasting legacy for its gripping plots and innovative ways of filming.
