SABC2 has secured the rights to broadcast the action drama series, Transito, making its debut on SABC TV on 25 October 2016 at 20h00.
The transmission of Transito on SABC2 follows a successful licensing deal between the channel and Kyknet.
Featuring the cream of the crop in the entertainment industry, including Jody Abrahams, Stephan Ludik, Michelle Burgers and Cedwyn Joel, the story unfolds when a botched transit robbery leads to murder, drama and violence.
When a special forces soldier Francois Brink, portrayed by Stephan Ludik, arrives at the scene of a transit robbery, five robbers and one security guard are already dead. There is another guard dying, the money chests are there, ready to be loaded. Who will know? Who will ever suspect him? If you have nothing, you have nothing to lose. But while he’s loading the seriously heavy loot onto his bakkie, someone is filming him on video.
Transito introduces another character to us, Patrys le Roux played by actress Milan Murray. Patrys’ hand painted linen is not selling too well and her shop is in financial trouble therefore the transit vehicle is her only hope, her escape, her single ticket to fiscal freedom. But now someone’s taken the money and her entire future depends on getting it back.
Gerard Rudolf appears as Priester, hired gunman employed by Kruger (Michelle Burgers), an abalone smuggler. Priester and Kruger had R2.5m cash in the transit vehicle and they want it back, even if it means killing everybody in the process.
Jody Abrahams plays the role of Tommy Falk, the owner of Falcon Security, the company that owns the transit vehicle.
The thorn in everybody’s flesh is detective superintendent Joseph Moroka played by Cedwyn Joel and his sidekick Halgryn (Andre Weideman) of Serious and Violent Crimes. Maroka is a methodical, patient policeman who can read a crime scene like a book.
Transito airs Tuesdays at 20H00 on SABC2.
