TRACKERS Debuts June 5, Exclusively On CINEMAX

An adaptation of internationally acclaimed author Deon Meyer's crime novel, the six-episode drama series TRACKERS, shot entirely in South Africa and debuting FRIDAY, JUNE 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), deftly interweaves three story strands into a sophisticated action-packed thriller that covers the length and breadth of the country, explosively colliding in Cape Town in a violent conspiracy involving organized crime, smuggled diamonds, state security, black rhinos, the CIA and an international terrorist plot.

TRACKERS stars James Gracie ("Siberia," "The Gamechangers"), Rolanda Marais ("Lied van die Lappop"), Ed Stoppard ("Knightfall," "The Pianist"), Sandi Schultz ("NYPD Blue," "City of Angels"), Brendon Daniels ("Arendsvlei," "Lockdown"), Trix Vivier ("Sterlopers," "Waterfront"), Thapelo Mokoena ("Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom"), and Sisanda Henna ("Tsha Tsha," "This Life").

All six episodes are directed by Jyri Kähönen ("Bordertown") and shot by cinematographer Ivan Strasburg ("13 Reasons Why," HBO's "Generation Kill," "Treme").

Upcoming episodes include:

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.

Episode 2

Debut date: FRIDAY, JUNE 12 (10:00-10:55 p.m. ET/PT)

As Lemmer (James Gracie), Lourens (Gerald Steyn), and Flea (Trix Vivier) drive on with their new cargo, Lemmer notices a car on their tail that promises to cause trouble. Still under threat of an agency shutdown, Janina (Sandi Schultz) continues to pursue all possible leads - and Milla (Rolanda Marais) proves herself to be a valuable asset, despite distracting threats from abandoned husband Christo (Morne Visser). After armed and dangerous heavy-hitter Inkunzi (Sissanda Henna) fails to intercept Osman's (Brendon Daniels) blood diamonds - which Flea had stashed in a fake rhino horn - Raj's (Meren Reddy) surveillance leads the team to a heated meeting between the two men. Later, Lucas Becker (Ed Stoppard), an American, gets violently carjacked in Cape Town.

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

Episode 3

Debut date: FRIDAY, JUNE 19 (10:00-11:01 p.m. ET/PT)

As Lucas (Ed Stoppard) chases down his carjackers in pursuit of a bag of stolen cash, he dogs Inkunzi (Sissanda Henna) for answers - and later, Milla's (Rolanda Marais) research puts her on Lucas's tail. After conferring with Ehrlichman in Zimbabwe, Lemmer (James Gracie) finds himself a few steps behind Inkunzi in a quest to track down the elusive Flea (Trix Vivier), while the PBI attempts to nab Flea - and her blood diamonds - for themselves. Amid ongoing surveillance of Osman (Brendon Daniels) and Daoud's (Emmanuel Castis) plans - and under pressure to locate the ominous shipment approaching Cape Town's shores - Janina (Sandi Schultz) considers Quinn's (Thapelo Mokoena) proposal to seek help from the CIA.

Adapted for Television by Robert Thorogood from the Novel by Deon Meyer; written by Jozua Malherbe, Amy Jephta & Kelsey Egan; directed by Jyri Kähönen.

Executive producers, Cobus van den Berg, Tim Theron, Jonathan Drake, Robert Thorogood, Deon Meyer; executive creative producer, Steve Maher; series producer, Rebecca Fuller-Campbell; directed by Jyri Kähönen; cinematography by Ivan Strasburg; adapted for television by Robert Thorogood from the novel by Deon Meyer; a Cinemax presentation of a Three River Fiction and Scene23 co-production in association with M-Net and ZDF.
