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

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.
