For more than six years, characters from the fictional Cape Town suburb of Ruiterbosch have been on our screens tackling social issues - both controversial and sensational.

The series, named in honour of the Cape’s famed Southeaster wind, continues to grow from strength to strength, telling the stories of the community and its diverse residents of the fictional Cape Town suburb, Ruiterbosch.

What makes Suidooster so unique is that it’s filmed in Milnerton in Cape Town, and is also written by writers who live and come from the diverse communities from the City – with characters who are portrayed by actors who’ve lived around the Mother City for years. While on-screen inclusion and diversity is what makes Ruiterbosch work, behind the scenes the same applies. The soapie is produced by Gambit Films, an award-winning production company run by CEO and executive producer, Bradley Joshua.
