The couple recently announced that they have inked a partnership with the international streaming service Netflix, on their upcoming series, Kings of Joburg and they are elated about reaching a new milestone in their careers.
The 6-part series delves into the legacy building, fragmented family structures, treacherous brotherhoods, and the effects of crime and African masculinities on families and society at large. Loyalties will be tested, with long-held secrets threatening to shatter the fragile facade.
Connie Ferguson said with this series they are taking Mzansi and Africa to the world.
“We’re living in exciting times where the world is becoming smaller and smaller. What used to be out of reach is now a stone throw away! With Kings Of Joburg, we are taking South Africa and Africa to the world and bringing the world to South Africa. It’s the United States Of The World show, bringing together talent from America and the continent! It was an honor to work with Netflix to bring to life this passion project we are truly proud of, ” she explained. Happy anniversary to the couple.
