It's OK We're Family is a South African television comedy series starring David Kau as YouTube blogger David Kau, who's making the biggest movie South Africa has ever seen - with the help of some of his celebrity friends.
However, he lives with his dysfunctional father Basil Kauwitz (Mark Banks) and his would be digital entrepreneurial sister Leshae K (Natasha Thahane). David works from home – from the lounge actually. But now he wants to work for the big screen.
David has his business meetings at home with people who will help him get his movie off the ground, from celebrities to politicians, with the aim of finding out how they made it big.
Life would be so much simpler if only his family would let him work in peace whenever a celeb popped by...
David Kau interviews South African personalities in a bid to get their buy-in for his big project. But will Riaad Moosa, Chris Forrest, Jessica Nkosi, Lorcia Cooper, Joey Rasdien and others be able to help David make the biggest South African movie? Or will Leshae K get her cocktail range Jugs Juice and her sneaker range Leshae K launched before she departs abroad to meet her digital boyfriend?
Will Basil still be the chairperson of Blended International (The SA Chapter)? Will FAIL (Folks Against The Interruption Of Life) win the National award for protest action in South Africa?
All this and more will be revealed in It's OK We're Family.
Some of the guest stars in the series include:
Chester Missing and Conrad Koch
