Blood Psalms

In Ancient Africa, one thousand days after the fall of Atlantis, the five surviving tribes of Kemet face the end of the world.

Bokang Phelane (Keeping Score, Isidingo) has the role of a lifetime as Princess Zazi, a fiercely determined teenage princess who comes up against her own father as she tries to figure out her role in a deadly prophecy. 

Mothusi Magano, winner of four SAFTAs and an African Movie Academy Award, plays her father, mad King Letsha, while SAFTA winner and 2022 DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice nominee Zolisa Xaluva (Gomora, Knuckle City) plays General Toka, the head of her father’s Akachi army. 

Show creators Layla Swart and Jahmil X.T. Qubeka from Yellowbone Entertainment were responsible for South Africa’s 2020 Oscar entry, Knuckle City. The boxing drama was the most awarded film at the 2020 SAFTAs, where it took home six awards, including Best Director for Qubeka and Best Editor for Swart, and the most nominated film at the 2020 AMAAs, where it won two awards. 

The first two episodes premiere on Wednesday, 28 September, with new episodes coming on Wednesdays for ten weeks.
