Mandela TV drama films in South Africa

New TV miniseries Madiba will tell the story of the iconic leader Nelson Mandela and is filming on location in South Africa.

Produced and financed by Blue Ice Pictures of Toronto, the series is entitled Madiba, which was the Thembu clan to which Mandela belonged and a name by which he was also known.

American actor Laurence Fishburne stars as Mandela with co-stars including fellow US actor Orlando Jones and Britain’s David Harewood.

Production will span the next seven weeks, with filming locations including Johannesburg, Cape Town and the infamous Robben Island where Mandela was imprisoned for nearly 20 years.

“Madiba is an ambitious and epic event series that tells an incredibly emotional and courageous story that is highly relevant in today’s world,” said Daniel March, managing partner of Dynamic Television, which will distribute the series globally. 

“This is a very talented creative team that has worked tirelessly to bring this important event to life and we’re honoured to have the opportunity to connect Madiba with audiences around the world.”

Idris Elba played the South African leader three years ago in the film biopic Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom (pictured), which charted Mandela’s life from childhood through to his election as president in 1994. 

Before that, Morgan Freeman took on the role for Clint Eastwood’s 2009 drama Invictus, which focussed on the story of South Africa’s seminal Rugby World Cup competition win in 1995.
