Elke Skewe Pot is a South African, Afrikaans-language television sitcom created by Meren Reddy, Joshua Rous and Luke Rous following four women from different worlds who work for an online matchmaking site called "Elke Skewe Pot", where other people regularly find partners.
Yet even though they have access to their own technology, true love still eludes them.
Sandra Koekemoer (Franci Swanepoel) is the 45-year-old owner of Elke Skewe Pot". Since a young age she has had the gift of matching perfect couples, and has already made "forever and ever" a reality for many couples.
The world has changed and, with the help of technological advances, Sandra has transformed her talent into a profitable dating website. Her team is small but clean.
Wilma de Bruin (Marisa Drummond), her right hand, is a 38-year-old, sexually-injured perfectionist who is trying her best to get off the shelf before her expiration date arrives.
Lulu van Heerden (Carien Botha) is 25. She is the secretary / private detective / man-eater. Even though she's overweight, it's never stopped her finding a man.
Finally, the newest member of the team is Anna Fourie (Carine Rous), a 31-year-old blogger who helps clients to express their more positive features. In other words, she lies for a living by brushing up online profiles so they are more tempting than in reality.
Everyone's life is made difficult by the curious neighbour, Tannie Tossie (Annette Engelbrecht), who is determined to build her own fame with her tiny biltong shop, located right next to ESP.
After a day's hard work, the place is to be the bar and restaurant on the ground floor, where most of ESP's events take place and where Benny Botha (Hannes Brümmer), the attractive yet somewhat hipster bartender, works as a self-described doctor.
Created by Meren Reddy, Joshua Rous and Luke Rous, Elke Skewe Pot is produced by Rous House Productions, with Marguerite Albrecht serving as supervising producer for kykNET. The head writer and director is Joshua Rous, with storyliners Henrietta Gryffenberg, Anne Hirsch, Meren Reddy and Lize Vosloo. Original music is by Andrew Baird.
