Home Affairs: A Love Story
The Williams-family is under one roof (yet again) for Pieter and Benita’s wedding weekend. At first glance all seems to be well. But unwanted guests – the family friend Greg and Benita’s mother Liezl (despite their best intentions) - have a way of increasing tension. In true Williams style all comes crashing down around the dinner table as more than one secret is exposed that threatens the family’s love for each other.
Watch it from Friday, 12 February at 20:00 on M-Net Movies 1 or on Showmax.
No Hiding Here
Soon after a very public exposé on his sexual affairs, Tertius (a famous television personality) swears his celibacy on live television. Still fighting hard to clear his name, he gets asked to MC the annual High-school beauty pageant in Heidelberg. Here, he faces his biggest challenge in the form of Dwayne, a local out of the closet teacher and possibly the love of his life.
Watch it exclusively on Showmax.
One Knight Kwa Mxolisi
When a once semi-successful rugby player opens a new restaurant, his friends come to celebrate his success. But after one too many vodkas and a few too many truth-bombs, illusions are shattered and friendships are tested. An ensemble cast, single location, linear narrative exploring friendships and facades on one fateful night at the Black and Blue, a new restaurant that Siya opens in a cosmopolitan suburb in Joburg.
