Finally, Showmax unveiled a surprise teaser of its next original series in Kenya, a 13-part thriller series that will debut later in 2022.

While more details are still under wraps, it follows twin sisters, Linda and Nicole, at war after a betrayal that changes their lives forever. 

Years later, one of the sisters breaks out of prison and takes over the seemingly wonderful life of her identical twin, with disastrous consequences. 

The 30-second teaser features Kalasha Award-winning actress Serah Ndanu (Sumu la Penzi, Pieces of Us) in the double role of Linda and Nicole. 

The series is helmed by Abdi Shuria (known for his works as a cinematographer for 2021’s hit Nafsi and Ayaanle), King Muriuki (The XYZ Show) and Abu Melita. 

This is the fourth Showmax Original title in Kenya after Crime and Justice, the coming-of-age film Baba Twins; and Single Kiasi.
