High Rollers Returns To SABC3 As A Telenovela

PRESS RELEASE: SABC3’s riveting local drama series High Rollers not only returns to our screens for a brand new season but also as a telenovela. This glamorous and backstabbing world of gambling can now be seen thrice a week, Monday to Wednesday at 19:30 from June 29.

Season 2 of High Rollers is once again shot on location at Emperor’s Palace and brings you the high quality drama viewers came to expect from last season’s hour long episodes, except this season viewers get it 3 times a week in half hour dynamite packages. High Rollers is created by the Rous House Productions team of producing and directing brothers, Luke and Josh Rous. Josh Rous directed the box office hit rom-com Semi Soet as well as the drama Discreet and the duo have been responsible for a number of SAFTA winning television productions such as Ga Re Dumele, Gauteng Maboneng and City Ses’la.

Joining the formidable cast of High Rollers, viewers have a host of South Africa’s best acting talent to look forward to in season 2 including Thabang, a technological whizz-kid using his talents to rip the casino off played by Maps Maponyone, and Thabang’s adrenaline hungry girlfriend Bonnie played by Khanya Mkangisa. Then there is “Uncle Dent” played by Terance Bridgett, Michelle’s long lost relative who arrives to help Michelle out of the trouble she’s gotten herself but manages to make things worse when old wounds are reopened and Denton discovers what really happened to his brother and Michelle’s father Rafiq.  Detective Mhambi played by Motlatji Ditodi helps steer the Kings through a difficult kidnapping saga while a pair of orphans, Thandi played by Thishiwe Ziqubu and Muzi played by Thabo Andrew Rametsi, have a score to settle with TT.

Season two of High Rollers kicks off with the three brothers Paul (Justin Strydom), David (Antony Coleman) and TT (Fezile Mpela) estranged when Paul, finally in control of Kings Casino, fires David and TT, and sets his sights on selling the casino to the highest bidder, which in his mind will set the King family on the right path again. But now that Paul has wrestled control from his brothers, can he truly part with it? With new alliances being formed, who will team up with whom?

David is hell bent on getting back what he believes is rightfully his, but he and Analine’s (Rolanda Marais) world is thrown into crises when Marcus is kidnapped. As the kidnapping saga unfolds we see David and Analine, who were all but divorced at the end of last season, slowly but surely being drawn closer together again. Will Analine and David reconcile and if so where does that leave Paul?

TT also faces some turmoil in his private life. He needs to man up against his dominating wife Gugu (Xolile Tshabalala) and show her who the man of the house is. Especially when she pushes him to go to war with the King brothers now that Helena (Brumilda Van Rensburg) has given TT the land the casino is built on and essentially made TT King’s Casino’s landlord.  Gugu takes things into her own hands by hiring a “fake” Sangoma to predict that TT will one day be the King of Kings. TT is not superstitious but then the predictions start coming true he can’t ignore the secret desire he’s harbored to be in control of his brothers any more. But playing with fate sets Gugu on a path of self-destruction that can only end badly.

After Esme (Carine Rous) was forced to break off her relationship with Ben (Vilje Maritz) by David or see Ben go to jail for her crime, the newlyweds face a split neither of them really wants. But when Ben sinks into the bottle as well as Tallulah’s (Hayley Owen) shoulder to cry on, is there really any hope for Ben and Esme or will it be a story of like father like son?

Dhanny (Mayuri Naidu) and Ravi’s (Jai Prakash) new relationship starts out smoothly, but soon hits the rocks as Ravi has no clue how to treat a lady, and Dhanny certainly wants to be treated right. Watching Ravi learn how to be a boyfriend is cringe-worthy but adorable, but can he keep Dhanny’s interests or will he fall victim to another.

The Stakes Have Never Been Higher! especially when the unwritten code of brotherhood starts to fall apart. Tune in to High Rollers on SABC3, from Monday, 29th June 2015 at 7.30pm, to see which way the dice falls.
