The series premiered on SABC1 on Thursday 21 September 2006, at 21h00. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

The first season aired on SABC1 from 21 September to 14 December, 2006, on Thursdays at 21h00. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 13 hour-long episodes in the first season.

Season 1

Tshisa plays off within popular youth culture.

It focuses on two young people – Bafana (19) and Ayanda (20) – who win the job of presenting a sizzling new TV show. Their boss is the stylish and determined young TV producer Vinolia.

Bafana also works the recording studios and the nightclubs with a troupe of dancers as his career as a kwaito star takes off. Ayanda, meanwhile, is establishing herself as a model.

The story moves out of the TV station and into the daily reality of the characters’ lives: Bafana’s family in Mondeor; his girlfriend, Precious, raised by a strictly traditional Ndebele grandmother; and Ayanda’s mother who has been growing progressively blind and must now learn to live with total blindness.

Tshisa is a story of how our choices affect those we love – especially the effect of drugs on those choices.

Tshisa is a tale of life choices; the price of fame; the allure of bling; the downward spiral of drugs; overcoming disability; love, relationships and HIV; families and the traditional ties that bind.

Each episode of Tshisa follows three lead characters in three big story arcs – Bafana, Ayanda and Vinolia. A smaller story features a celebrity appearance.
