New South African sport drama the Agent premieres today at SBS On Demand.
The Agent showcases ‘the business end’ of soccer, as seen through the eyes of a mercurial, charismatic football agent and former professional football player, wrestling with a fatal secret he buried six years ago, on the brink of breaking big or losing everything.
Hot-shot soccer agent Slindile ‘Blaze’ Magoba (Khumbulani Kay Sibiya) has 18-hours before the transfer window shuts to save his football agency from the axe and his clients from being poached by a ruthless rival agent.
He juggles this while trying to make sense of a drunken and passionate one-night stand with a female detective. She could threaten a secret he buried with his star client, six years ago.
The series is a fun, light-hearted look into the glamourous world of football and football agents.
In English, Zulu, and Xhosa with English subtitles.
