Showmax has released the first trailer for the original horror series Pulse, picked by The Hollywood Reporter as one of the 25 buzziest series at this year’s MIPTV, a leading global TV market in Cannes, France.

Shot in South Africa and Mauritius, Pulse is about an international group of game creators who discover that survival is no longer just a game when an electromagnetic pulse bomb fries every electrical circuit in their office high-rise – and people’s heads.

“Pulse is unique in so many ways,” says Safta winner Tarryn Wyngaard (DAM). She plays Jaz, creator of a hit indie game that’s getting a mainstream reboot, for better or worse. “Stephen Clarke’s scripts were so incredibly out of this world and like nothing I’ve ever read before.”

Safta winner Thapelo Mokoena (Trackers) is playing against type as her ex, the reboot’s narcissistic producer.

Other cast members include Sven Ruygrok (Spud’s Rambo), Carel Nel (Raised by Wolves), with cameos from Albert Pretorius (Nêrens, Noord-Kaap), Laré Birk (Vir Altyd), and screen legend Frank Opperman (Dominee Tienie, Nêrens). 

The six-episode survival horror series is directed by multi-award-winner Sallas de Jager (Dominee Tienie, Free State), also known as the frontman of Sama-nominated Afrikaans folk-rock band Klopjag.

Pulse is the latest in a string of internationally acclaimed horrors emerging from South Africa, like the multi-award-winning Fried Barry and Gaia and the critically acclaimed Glasshouse.

The series premieres on the streaming service on 23 June.
