The upcoming eight-part thriller, Red Link is based on author Angela Makholwa-Moabelo’s best-selling debut novel. The author was raised in the East Rand township of Tembisa, worked as a journalist, and reported mostly on crime in the 1990s.


“I’m excited there is less trepidation on my side than you would expect. It’s been a great pleasure because I’ve been in the writer’s room. I’m an executive producer on the show, so I’m involved in the decision-making,” says Makholwa-Moabelo.
