Prime Video announces South Africa’s first scripted series, In Your Dreams, launching on 24 November

Prime Video South Africa’s first scripted series combines fantasy with classic action-adventure, featuring the living dead, cursed statues, and three unforgettable friends. Launching on 24 November, the six-part series will join global titles such as The Boys, Citadel, Die Hart, Harlem, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, as well as local movies such as Atlantis, The Fury, and Umbrella Men 2, all for R79 per month on Prime Video.

In Your Dreams centers on down-at-heel best friends and business partners Lloyd (Kiroshan Naidoo) and Marcus (Jesse Suntele), who accidentally awaken an ancient spirit when they encounter Marcus’ schoolboy crush, adventuring relic hunter and antiquities dealer Dineo (Didintle Khunou).

With horrifying and hilarious results, the malevolent spirit will show our intrepid adventurers what they’re truly willing to do to make their most heartfelt dreams come true. A parable about the power of family – both the ones we’re born into and the ones we create ourselves – the series spans across mystical caves and sacred burial grounds to modern cities and the African bushveldt.

In Your Dreams’ cast includes Didintle Khunou, Kiroshan Naidoo, Jesse Suntele, Sello Maake Ka Ncube, Thando Thabethe, Khabonina Qubeka, Anthony Oseyemi, Tshamano Sebe and Nqobile Sipamla.

The series is produced by independent African production company Motion Story (Shadow, Dead Places).
