What to expect on ‘Straat’

The series has a stellar cast and storylines with enough twists and turns to keep viewers glued to their screens.

According to a Press Release, all the drama happens in a middle-class neighbourhood where residents are debating to have a wall built around them to keep the danger out. Little do they know that a whistleblower in witness protection has just moved in.

“The criminal Anton Videns (Frank Opperman), the big boss of a financial institution, and his partners are in deep trouble. A whistleblower is going to testify against them, and they will do anything to stop him. The whistleblower, an IT genius, lives in Aarbei Street under witness protection and the assumed name Robert Muller (Nico Panagio).

“Zelda Postma (Amalia Uys) resides in the same dead-end street and is a bright attorney tasked with keeping Robert safe. She’s assisted by another neighbour, Potifar Vorster (Morné Visser), or Pote, as everybody calls him. Pote is a retired policeman, and he and his wife, the nurse Lorrie (Marisa Drummond), are the only other people in Aarbei Street who know Robert is under witness protection. “

Straat will premiere at 8 pm on Tuesday, 17 October, on kykNET (DStv channel 144) with a talented cast that includes Kate Normington, Josias Moleele and Kiroshan Naidoo, Kevin Smith, Melt Sieberhagen, Mandri Sutherland and Celeste Loots.
