Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer stars in the trailer of M-Net’s new international co-production, White Lies, which premieres on 7 March.


Award-winning actress Natalie Dormer, who starred in Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games and more, as well as Four Corners star Brendon Daniels come together to star in White Lies.

The drama is M-Net’s new international co-production, which dives into crime, passion, drugs and double-dealing in a divided city.

White Lies is an urgent exploration of power and privilege, inequality and identity, with an end-to-end array of characters – all entangled in a riveting, twisted murder mystery. Investigative journalist Edie Hansen (Dormer) is stunned by the murder of her estranged brother in a home invasion. She is rapidly pulled into the nightmarish aftermath when she’s reunited with her orphaned teenage niece and nephew in the most difficult of circumstances,” according to M-Net.

As Edie hunts for the killer across the complicated, beautiful city of Cape Town, she crosses from the leafy Southern Suburbs of white privilege to the poverty-ravaged badlands and back again, discovering that evil knows no boundaries – and it doesn’t discriminate.

The story dissects an inward-looking, affluent community structured around a very personal psychological and emotional journey in the vein of bingeable shows like Big Little Lies and Sharp ObjectsWhite Lies is at once a gripping mystery, a complex family drama and a searing examination of a deeply divided society struggling to reckon with the sins of its past.


The drama is produced by Harriet Gavshon and Nimrod Geva for Quizzical Pictures. Dormer and Darrel Bristow-Bovey serve as executive producers. The series’ lead director is The Wound’s John Trengove alongside Thati Pele (Lerato), Catharine Cooke (Reyka) and Christiaan Olwagen (Poppie Nongena, Kanarie).

The eight-part series premieres on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) on 7 March at 20:00. So, take a look at the trailer…
