Ziman, also a New York Best Selling Author, director, and philanthropist explained that the ‘Cape Town’ series was based on the novel, “Dead Before Dying” by Deon Meyer. The novel offers a glimpse into how the lawlessness and political unrest of South Africa has made ‘Cape Town’ a destination for sex-traffickers in which they harbor their victims. Kodjoe chose to turn the book into a series in an effort to help shine the light on the many dark truths and realities of sex-trafficking.
Kodjoe, who also plays the role of Sanctus Snookan in ‘Cape Town,’ is an Austrian-born actor of German and Ghanaian descent. Kodjoe chose to work on the series in order to share with the world various content and cultures from other countries.
