An adaptation of internationally acclaimed author Deon Meyer’s crime novel, Trackers debuts same time as the U.S. on Saturday, 6 June at 10am exclusively on HBO GO and CINEMAX (Astro Ch 412 HD) with same day encore at 10pm on CINEMAX.
Shot entirely in South Africa, this series deftly interweaves three story strands into a sophisticated action-packed thriller that covers the length and breadth of the country, explosively colliding in Cape Town in a violent conspiracy involving organised crime, smuggled diamonds, state security, black rhinos, the CIA and an international terrorist plot. New episode premieres every Saturday at the same time.
Trackers stars James Gracie (“Siberia,” “The Gamechangers”), Rolanda Marais (“Lied van di Lappop”), Ed Stoppard (“Knightfall,” “The Pianist”), Sandi Schultz (“NYPD Blue,” “City of Angels”), Brendon Daniels (“Arendsvlei,” “Lockdown”), Trix Vivier (“Sterlopers,” “Waterfront”), Thapelo Mokoena (“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”), and Sisanda Henna (“Tsha Tsha,” “This Life”).
All six episodes are directed by Jyri Kähönen (“Bordertown”) and shot by cinematographer Ivan Strasburg (“13 Reasons Why,” HBO’s “Generation Kill,” “Treme”). Check out the trailer here.
