Episode 1

Debut date: FRIDAY, JUNE 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)

In rural Loxton, South Africa, Lemmer (James Gracie) reluctantly embarks on a shadowy smuggling operation. Meanwhile, Cape Town's Presidential Bureau of Intelligence launches a high-stakes, covert investigation into a terrorist plot after a police informant blows the whistle on a meeting between local Islamic extremists and Suleiman Daoud (Emmanuel Castis), a senior Al Qaeda operative. As PBI chief Janina Mentz (Sandi Schultz) carefully directs the sting, special agent Quinn (Thapelo Mokoena) is eager to make an arrest - and Milla (Rolanda Marais), a housewife who's escaped an abusive suburban existence, lands a job as a researcher on the team.

Adapted for Television by Robert Thorogood from the Novel by Deon Meyer; written by Jozua Malherbe & René van Rooyen; directed by Jyri Kähönen.
