Fatal Seduction follows the story of the failing marriage of Nandi and Leonard, where suspicions escalate as one spouse seeks solace in extra-marital affairs.
Filmed in Cape Town, the plot unfolds as Nandi embarks on an eventful weekend getaway from her husband with her troubled best friend, Brenda. While on the trip, she meets an alluring young man, Jacob, who ignites her sexual desires, causing her to question the truth about those closest to her. Past lies and secrets gradually surface, entangling Nandi in a web of deception where nothing is as it seems.
The series boasts an impressive ensemble cast, with Thapelo Mokoena, best known as the presenter for the debut season of South African adaptation of the reality competition, “Fear Factor,” and Isidingo series actress, Kgomotso Christopher, playing the troubled couple, Leonard and Nandi.
