Cape Town - SABC3 will be launching a new drama series set against the backdrop of the high stakes world surrounding gambling.

It has been confirmed that the show, titled High Rollers, is set to premiere on Tuesday 2 April at 20:30 on SABC3. The show has also been commissioned for 26 one-hour episodes by SABC3.

SABC3 has announced that the show will be the first drama series that the channel has created in quite some time, following other successful shows such as Jozi H which was quite popular on local screens a few years ago.

'Several A-listers'

High Rollers is said to give viewers a glimpse into the dark world of gambling, family drama and moral questions, centering itself around the lives of three brothers David, Paul and Thato "TT" Mogale and their dealings with luxurious casino's and high stakes gambling.

The show is created by Rous House Production and produced by the directing duo Luke and Josh Rous, who produced local films such as Semi-Soet, Discreet and television shows like City Ses'la.

Erfsondes-writer and creator Henriëtta Gryfenberg will head the writing team on the series.

No word has been given about who has been cast in the series, but SABC3 has hinted on their Facebook-page that "several A-listers of SA's stage and screen" will be seen on the show.
