SHOW­MAX ORIG­I­NALS

TV Plus (South Africa) - - SHOWMAX -

Show­max’s first-ever orig­i­nal drama se­ries, the mur­der mys­tery The Girl From St Agnes (2019), will launch this month. It’s set in a posh girls’ board­ing school in Ix­opo in KZN, and in­formed by se­ries pro­ducer Har­riet Gavshon’s (whose cred­its in­clude In­ter­sex­ions, Hopeville, iNum­ber Num­ber and 4Play: Sex Tips 4 Girls) own South African board­ing school ex­pe­ri­ences, so it will be full of lo­cal flavour. But the big drama of the sea­son won’t be who stole Brenda’s tuck money. Af­ter pop­u­lar girl Lexi Sum­merveld (Jane De Wet) is found dead at the base of an old mill, drama teacher Kate Bal­lard (Nina Mil­ner) doesn’t buy the school’s cover-up story that Lexi’s death was an ac­ci­dent. And the deeper she digs, the more sus­pects will come to light, es­pe­cially when Lexi’s death links into South Africa’s #MeToo con­ver­sa­tion. Look out for more siz­zling orig­i­nals com­ing up in 2019!

Lexi’s death isn’t as clear cut as ev­ery­one thinks.

Kate needs to know what re­ally hap­pened to her dead stu­dent in The Girl From St Agnes.
