Thought you were too cool for school? Wait ‘till you meet the glamorous cool-kids of Parkhurst College in the first-look trailer for the Netflix African Original, Blood & Water – the much anticipated 6 part Young Adult Drama series that delves deep into the tapestry of youth and identity culture.
You’d be excused for thinking that life for these uber-privileged high-schoolers revolves around parties, passion and a healthy dose of gossip, but beneath the surface runs a mystery that has every one of them firmly in its grip. Are people who they say they are? Is the head-girl-elect as perfect as she seems? Will Puleng ever find out the truth about her missing sister, abducted as a newborn? Is blood really thicker than water?
Blood & Water premiers globally in 190 countries on 20 May 2020.
About Blood & Water
At Parkhurst College, a prestigious inner-city school for Cape Town’s elite scholars and academic overachievers, we’ll follow the exploits of the intelligent, proactive and impulsive 16- year-old Puleng Khumalo, as she engineers her transfer to the school to investigate the 17-year- old cold case of her abducted-at-birth older sister she’s never met.
