About Diamond City
Zandile is South Africa’s most prolific female public prosecutor. She is a star, an inspiration and a proud, no-nonsense law enforcer who is rising up the ranks of the legal profession at light speed.

There’s no knowing how high she’ll go - until the day she is arrested for murder.
The hero has fallen and the public is in shock. She goes from an officer of the law to a criminal. From hero to outcast! From the top of the world to the depths of despair!
Now Zandile finds herself arriving at the gates of the very prison where she has been sending the guilty to. And one question keeps going through her mind, over and over again: How did this happen? She is innocent…and yet, here she is.
But soul searching is a luxury Zandi cannot afford now. She is immediately thrown into the harsh and brutal world of Diamond City. The reality of the situation is worse than she could have ever imagined. Not only are the conditions appalling, the guards abusive and the hopelessness crushing. She is also about to face a number of women whom she last saw when she was the one who got them sent to jail.
“Producing Diamond City was a thrill from the get-go. The development team included lawyers, former prisoners, police and writers of course. At some point the reality of the story we are telling had me asking what lengths I would go to, to prove my innocence.
I am privileged to have been part of this process from its development, through to its production and I think audiences are in for a thrilling and captivating ride, where they will become so invested in the story, that they may become armchair detectives.” said Siphiwe Hlabangane the producer of Diamond City.
