See no evil, speak no evil, hear noe evil – the Listener is here…
Drama lovers get ready for the second season of The Listener which airs on Zuku TV and Smart TV this April.
March 11 2011 – If you are a lover of South African television crime-drama then you can look forward to the riveting season 2 of The Listener, exclusive to Zuku TV and Smart TV from April 23 rd.
The series follows the life of 20-something paramedic Toby Logan (Craig Olejnik) who puts his telepathic ability of being able to tune in to other peoples’ conversations to good use –solving crime and, on odd occasion, eavesdropping on behalf of a friend or two.
After a successful first season, the lone wolf Logan is back on track with plenty to listen out for.
And there’s also much more to hide.
No one but Dr Mukai his child psychiatrist knows his stunning secret. And she vows to keep things quiet – so as to not destroy her career and for the world to not view Logan as an ‘oddball’.
Kicking off episode one, we find Toby Logan fighting his gift in the wake of his guilt over the murder of close friend Detective Charlie Marks (Lisa Marcos), and the disappearance of his mother Maya (Lara Jean Chorostecki).
This after he saves potential drown victim Lynn Kendall (Rekha Sharma of Battlestar Galactica and V) who may be involved in a corporate espionage and murder plot.
To make matters worse, Logan’s connection with the amnesiac Kendall comes under the microscope when investigated by Sergeant Michelle McCluskey (Lauren Lee Smith of CSI and The L Word), as does his more than co-incidental connection with past criminal cases.
Self-styled ladies’ man and speed-freak Osman Bey (Ennis Esmer) continues in his role as Toby’s wheelman.
Full of wit and wisdom and a compulsive story-teller, Bey plays the reliable friend and partner who accepts Logan for who he is.
Season 2 sees Logan step up his game and embrace his powers. Until he hits a crossroad: safeguard his secret and face the music, or tell the truth to Sergeant McCluskey in the hope she turns a blind eye to the truth.
But will she listen?
