‘Justice Served’ is a six-part thriller starring the likes of Hlomla Dandala, Lerato Mvelase and Pallance Dladla.

The series follows the story of South Africans being called on to decide the fate of a white man, Allan Harve, who is accused of killing a young black man.

Local citizens only have a few hours to vote for his execution or exoneration.

The series is described as a “high-stakes drama” that unfolds in a hijacked courtroom while tensions and conflict fill the streets of South Africa - this threatening to divide the nation.

With what's happening in South Africa right now, I really wanted to engage South Africans in very complexed and difficult conversations.

I really wanted to look at the consequences that might happen if we push ourselves too far.
