AGENT HITS SABC 1 SUNDAY PRIME TIME
The highly anticipated drama series AGENT is coming to SABC 1 in the Sunday-night 21h30 timeslot, starting 08 March 2020.
Agent represents an interesting take on the business end of soccer as seen through the eyes of a fierce, mercurial football agent, Slindile “Blaze” Magoba - played by our very own Kay Sibiya - wrestling with a fatal secret he buried six years ago, on the brink of breaking big or losing everything. Blaze is a former professional football player whose career ended prematurely due to an injury. He has since reinvented himself as a football agent who actually cares about his clients.
The series’ star-studded cast include popular South African actors such as Pamela Nomvete (Godi Zulu), Zweli Dube (Phumlani Mbebe), Tarryn Wyngaard (Nathalie Isaacs), Makgotso M (Delilah Skosana), Paballo Moganedi (Kim Moyo) and Owen Sejake as Walter Mbebe.
Agent also stars the multi-talented Sisanda Henna portraying a character Lesego ‘Ace’ Moleko who is a biggest striker in the country with an ego that knows no bounds. He wears the number 9 shirt & his personalized number plate reads “God”. He is Blaze’s number one client, but also his biggest headache as he lurches from one scandal to the next.
Anthony Oseyemi plays ‘Christopher Kilembe’ the most powerful sports lawyer. He is ruthless, relentless and always at the top of his game.
Set in the concrete jungle of modern day Johannesburg and powered by an iconic soundscape that includes vintage 70’s funk, psychedelic alternative ballads, and contemporary African and South African hip hop, Agent explores the kind of wheeling and dealing that goes on in the modern game, how sociopathic rival agents, megalomaniac club owners, scheming professional football players and their gold-digging football wags, compromised club managers, and duplicitous witch-doctors, shamelessly hustle and negotiate inside the corridors of world football power.
Others cast members include: Manie Malone (Nina Sankara), Thabo Malema (Vuyo Moyo), Robert Mpisi (Monte Skosana), Virgile Bramly (Jean-Pierre Yasbeck), , Yannick Konan (Herve Toure), Michaella Russell (Mila Dior), Vinaya Sungkur (Jade Singh) Sarah Kozlowski (Zoe Zante) and Gabriella Cirillo (Jackie East).
