The Black Door is a South African television drama series created by Mandla N and Mpumelelo Nhlapho. It is an e.tv original production produced by Blackbrain Pictures for e.tv. The series stars Linda Sebezo, Zamani Mbatha, Velephi Mnisi, and Gabisile Tshabalala, among others.
The series focuses on Khaya (Zamani Mbatha), a long-distance truck driver who has a dream of owning a bus driving business with his brother, Chuma (Thobani Nzuza).
The story begins with a long-distance truck driver, Khaya (played by Zamani Mbatha), who shares a dream of owning a fleet of buses with his older brother, Chuma (played by Thobani Nzuza).
By day, Chuma is the deacon of a church, and by night, he works as a sex worker at The Black Door, an exclusive adult entertainment brothel. When he learns of his brother’s death at the hands of the owner of The Black Door, Rebecca (Linda Sebezo) over missing money that was supposed to be delivered, Khaya is forced to join the world of sex, drugs, and dodgy dealings.
Mandla N, one of the executive directors of the series, describes it as more than just full-frontal sex and nudity and says it tells a story of sex workers and their daily lives. The series aims to bring awareness and break stigmas about the profession.
