“When I created Kings of Jo’burg I wanted to root the show in elements of love, family, conflict, and power.
The premise of the series is centered around the question, ‘Am I my brother’s keeper?’ and this narrative is explored in all 6 episodes.
The mystical and thriller side of the story is inspired by the folk tales that I grew up learning about from my late father, Peter Harry Ferguson.
These stories kept me up at night and gave me nightmares but I had to bring them to life in a tale of human conflict.
