The Estate is a South African television series set in Echelon Estate, a gated community with a golf course, clubhouse, gym, and all the facilities that such estates provide.
A neighbouring Thembalethu township community puts up a land claim against the estate and this raises themes of identity and heritage, truth vs lies, money (old and new), historical disempowerment and the fight for true economic freedom. Premiere episodes of The Estate air from Mondays to Fridays at 19h00.
