Season 1

Soul Buddyz is a South African youth drama television series produced by Soul City: IHDC and SABC Education and set in any urban centre in South Africa which closely reflects the lives, struggles and joys of 8-12 year olds in our changing society.

The story revolves around a group of children who hang out in a park after school.

These children from different backgrounds find an old abandoned taxi and make it their headquarters. This is where they laugh and cry and live their young lives to the full. They are the Soul Buddyz.

Their slogan is: "Tomorrow is ours."

Interwoven into the drama are serious issues which children deal with on a daily basis, including: AIDS, relationships, sexuality, bullying, abuse, corporal punishment, road safety and other accidents like burns and drowning and dealing with disability - especially the rights of children with disability.

All the issues are clearly framed within the South African constitution and the UN convention on the rights of the child. Children are encouraged to express their rights and also to examine their responsibilities.

Season 1 stars Melanie Du Bois, Keval Harie, Wesleigh Kapotis, Sihle Mangqu, David Meyer, Salamina Mphelo, Shaughn Reyneke and Tsholofelo Wechoemang.

Soul Buddyz was produced for Soul City: Institute for Health and Development Communication and SABC Education by Bobby Heaney Productions.

Season 1 was produced by Bruce Townsend. Writers included Rosalind Butler and Craig Freimond. Season 1 music was by Skhumba Music, Peter Ngobese and Lesley Brown. The directors were Bobby Heaney and Phillip Mosoeu.
