A new 10-part series is coming your way this January 2021, courtesy of M-Net. It is aptly titled (Lioness) as it stars a beast in every right. Shannon Esra takes on another lead role that further demonstrates the actress’ range.
Having already made appearances in some of South Africa’s most watched telenovelas (The Queen, The River, The Throne and, most recently, Gomora), the 36 year old actress brings to life the character Sam, who loses her children, her lover, and her freedom when she is framed for fraud.
Lioness is created and produced by Ochre Moving Pictures, which has brought you riveting content for years in eTV’s Scandal and Mzansi Magic shows like Greed and Desires and two seasons of Housekeepers.
Here’s a sneak peak at what you can expect on the show:
Just as the trailer clearly depicts, the M-Net original series follows Sam, as she comes to grips with her abrupt arrest in front of her children. She is forced to reach into the depths of her baser instincts in order to fight for her family against her ex husband.
Don’t forget to watch the thriller, which premieres on Thursday, 28 January 2021.
