Synopsis

"Scam thy neighbour."

Chandies is a colloquial term that means "trouble" and is also the name of the sitcom where a naive church community takes in two inept, desperate conmen who repay their new family by taking them for a not-so-joyous ride.

Paddido (Patrick Shai) and Daliza (Darlington Michaels) - two conniving if not convincing gangsters - arrive at a church for sanctuary. These two conmen are on the run from a microlender in Johannesburg.

After convincing Pastor Tumelo Mofokeng (Lesedi Mogoatlhe) that they are two God-fearing citizens in need of some help, she offers them temporary refuge. They in turn see her as their meal ticket, giving them access to a congregation full of potential targets.

Unfortunately their efforts are hampered by their overzealous and perpetually skeptical niece, Dorothea (Tina Jaxa), whose daughter Limpho (Kertrice Maitisa), a sassy smart teenager, has her own wry way of interrupting the conmen's plans.

Another character in the Chandies family is Macintosh "Mac" Kunene (Richard Tafane). He is the security guard at the church who often becomes the unlucky scapegoat and guinea pig to many of Daliza and Paddido's schemes.

Written by Mpaki Molapo and Brendan Pollecutt, the series is produced by Roberta Durrant for Penguin Films. The director is Vusi Dibakwane.
