Fans of the Mzansi Magic series The Queen will soon get added access to one of the most favoured soaps on DStv when it is extended to a Monday to Friday series, with five episodes each week.
According to Liz Dziva, publicity and public relations manager of MultiChoice Zimbabwe, suspense, intrigue, spice and comic relief will come aplenty from July 31, when viewers will be able to enjoy more of the Khoza family antics and the shenanigans of their friends and foes.
“The Brutus and Kgositsile meme Hall of Fame is about to receive more of these beloved characters’ quirky tongue-in-cheek humour and facial expressions when The Queen becomes a five-days-a-week show,” she said.
“The Queen has become one of Mzansi Magic’s most popular shows, running until now from Monday to Thursday. But its immense popularity demands that we make it a five-day a week show as it seems viewers just can’t get enough of the twists and turns in the story.”
To add to the entertainment value, a new, seasoned actress is joining the already stellar cast: Rami Chuene, who will add some heat to the Khoza pot, portraying the character of Gracious. Another new face will be that of well-known actor Thato Molamu (Greed and Desire), who plays successful up-and-coming prosecutor Bakang. Good-looking, charming and a hit with many women, there’s more to this sharp-shooting lawyer than meets the eye, as the Maake family is about to find out.
Old time favourite Magic Hlatshwayo returns as Kwanele’s supportive dad, Alpheus, who comes back to help his son find his feet again. Kgagiso starts a war against his family, but will he be able to see it to the end? Meanwhile, Harriet’s empire comes under threat from new fronts, and Kea is the hero who saves a loved one from a dangerous situation.
The Queen will air Monday to Friday at 9pm, starting Monday July 31, on Mzansi Magic, DStv Channel 161. For more, visit www.dstv.com
