An upcoming new 13-part television series set in an alternate "Pan-African universe," where all sorts of unexplainable, paranormal dark threats rule.

Here, a specialized Police Occult Unit led by ambitious young detective Alice Kunene, together with seasoned veteran Harkness, and their high-tech detective team, situated in a cavernous, dingy basement, called Room 9 (other teams disparagingly refer to this team as “Zombie Cops”), hunt down the "perpetrators of evil," both in the world of the living and of the dead.

Welcome to the playground of the Devil, where Satanic cults, Muti murders, the Tokoloshe, Demons, Poltergeists, Zombies, Werewolves, Aliens, Vampires, and even a Mermaid, are all on the menu.

Zethu Dlomo, David Butler, Anthony Oseyemi, Angela Ludek, and Elné Pretorius make up the starring cast.

Some of the creators behind the new series should be names you recognize, like Charlie Vundla (he directed last year's South African crime drama, How To Steal 2 Million), and Darrell Roodt (director of Winnie).

Room 9 premieres on South African TV network SABC1, on Thursday, November 8, at 8.30pm. Maybe it'll travel.

    I dig the concept and main star seem very likeable. I wonder if she could crossover into big films.

    Production values aren't great but it looks interesting.
