Office Games

Based on the Nolly Book "Business of Love" by Pamela Moeng

Broadcast: 31 July, 2012
Starring: Keitumetse Moepang and Neo Mothopeng
Director: Myrto Makrides

Naledi Moagi (Keitumetse Moepang) was really excited to land a job at one of the top marketing consultancies in the country. The downside is that it also happens to be where her very first childhood crush works.

But the good-looking and arrogant Tumi Moeketsi (Neo Mothopeng) is not just any old colleague; he is the grandson of the founder of the company. After years abroad, he's back to help his grandfather run the family business.

Tumi and Naledi are soon thrown together to work on an important pitch but Tumi doesn't hide his disdain for what he sees as another gold-digger out to mine the family's wealth. Will he be proved right? Or will Naledi convince him otherwise?

Either way, it seems the office games have just begun...

Meet Mapule Nkosi (Lerato Motshwarakgole) - an aspiring chef at a top hotel. The only problem is that her life reads like a crazy recipe for an untried dish.

Take one serving of a flamboyant new flatmate, add to that a hectic new job with a large pinch of pressure, mix with a teensy tiny crush on her new boss, sprinkle with a dusting of a crazy family back home and cook over very high heat.

As the new chef on the block, Mapule is excited about the job but knows she has a lot to prove - particularly to her new boss, the delectable but fiery Daniel Akila (Anthony Oseyemi).

When she first comes face to face with him, is it a case of too many cooks spoil the broth? Or is it a recipe for love? Watch Mapule juggle all the ingredients in her life and see what she finally cooks up.

So when her boss offers her the chance to take over one of the most popular columns in the magazine – she jumps.

Her first assignment requires her to go undercover and write an explosive expose on wealthy businessman, Luasi Nkosi (Clayton Misoya). Thuli plans a risky and covert operation to infiltrate his life.
