Braydan Heart is the production’s director, editor and producer.

It has a star-studded line-up of the city’s crème de la crème, Qeqe Mntambo, Ben Chest, Asaph, Babongile Sikhonjwa, Calvin Madula and Randall Ncube, among others.

Heart said the drama series explores romantic relationships.

“Soulmate is a Zimbabwean, young adult drama series that explores concepts and themes associated with young adults.

The series is about two lovers, Phumza and Locratia, who will take viewers on a journey that will reveal how they ended up becoming soulmates.

“Amid their respective narrations, viewers will come face-to -face with the romantic man that Phumza is and how his wandering eye leads to ups and downs in his relationship with the beautiful Locratia,” Heart said.

“The series uses a flash-forward that involves a mystery element with most episodes taking placing in three timelines.”

He said it was pleasing that their business relationship with ZTN is a blossoming one that will certainly revive the country’s film industry.

“We had a meeting with ZTN and they fell in love with the production.

It felt like it was meant to be, you know, just like soulmates.

We’re confident that this relationship is the start of more great things to come as we move to put the country’s film industry on an international platform,” said Heart.
