Congratulations to the The Girl From St Agnes on their milestone.
Showmax Original drama, The Girl From St Agnes, was released a few days ago and its already breaking records.
The murder mystery drama, which is Showmax’s first original series, has beaten out every other show on their site as well as Showmax’s previous Original, Tali’s Wedding Diary, becoming most-watched show on its debut.
The Girl From St Agnes is an intriguing new drama about a popular student who is found dead at a prestigious all-girls boarding school in the Midlands, KZN and stars Robert Hobbs, Monte Carlo, Zakeeya Patel, Makgotso M, Celeste Khumalo and more local talent.
Speaking about this, Candice Fangueiro, Head of Content for the Connected Video division of MultiChoice, which houses Showmax, said: “We’re over the moon. This shows without a shadow of a doubt that local content is a major differentiator, and it also shows that African productions can not only hold their own against the best in the world but they can actually come out on top.”
“We’d, of course, hoped that The Girl from St Agnes would get loads of views, but what we didn’t expect was how many people have already watched the entire series. That’s eight one-hour episodes in less than 24 hours – a serious testament to how binge-worthy the show is.” Added Fangueiro.
