Thespians Sello Maake Ka Ncube and Lerato Mvelase star alongside each other as husband and wife in The Station, a new drama series on Mzansi Magic. The DStv show will see power dynamics unfold between four employees who suddenly become shareholders of a filling station.
The 13-part drama series on screens from 5 April 2021 at 8pm.
Scheming and backstabbing
When Don (Owen Sejake) leaves his station to his four employees, a lot of scheming and backstabbing comes into play as they all try to take control of the company.
A clash of personalities and hostility amongst each other threatens to destroy the legacy left by Don, who was known as a successful businessman with a passion for giving back to the community.
The show will also see actor Siphamandla Ndhludhlu star as Ceasar, a young man determined to see the business succeed to improve his socio-economic conditions and support his father Themba (Ernest Ndlovu), who is wheelchair-bound. But with Diliza (Aubrey Mmakola) threatening to take control of the filling station and run it to the ground, will Cynthia (Lerato Mvelase), Fix (Sello Maake Ka Nncube) and Ceasar be able to stop him?
“This is a classic South African story. Everyday people find themselves inheriting fortunes from their bosses or family members and the defining factor is how they are able to navigate through their easily acquired riches,” says Nomsa Philiso, the Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
“What makes this drama series a must watch is that despite its non-stop action, plotting and twists and turns, viewers will be exposed to content that someone around them, be it a relative, friend or neighbour, has had to live through. With the gripping storyline and an impressive cast, this promises to be one of the hottest dramas to premiere this April 2021,” she concludes.
