Season 1

Die Uwe Pottie Potgieter (translated as Yours Truly, Pottie Potgieter) is a South African, Afrikaans-language television sitcom written by Dana Snyman and based on his one-man play of the same name, about the life of Pottie Potgieter - a middle aged Afrikaans man who is stuck at home while his wife is working as a nurse in Saudi Arabia to support the family.

The series follows the misadventures of Pottie (Frank Opperman) as he tries to find a job. His mother-in-law, Baby (Elize Cawood), has moved in with him trying to help his son, 17-year-old Sebastiaan (Kaz McFadden) through matric.

Pottie's friend Tiny (Ben Kruger) also lost his job and has not told his wife four months after being fired. He goes to Pottie's house everyday to prevent his wife from being suspicious.

Sebastiaan is very bad at maths and his association with a new girlfriend he met at extra maths classes, 18-year-old Tascha (Cherie van der Merwe), only makes matters worse.

Pottie and mother-in-law don't get along at all. She resents the fact that he is jobless and blames him that her daughter is in Saudi Arabia.

The series is about all the ordinary Afrikaans family trying to cope with ordinary issues.
