Season 3

Fishy Fêshuns is a South African television sitcom based on the 1960s BBC sitcom The Rag Trade by Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney which revolves around the goings on between workers and their boss in a clothing factory in Cape Town.

The series is set in a small garment factory in Cape Town called Fisher Fashions, owned by Harold Fisher. His staff includes by the likes of Dino (his cutter), Jérmaine de la Fontaine (a freelance designer) and a workforce of five strong women: Patsy (the shop floor steward), Xoli, Rochelle, Vera and Janine.

Fisher's over-demanding wife Bernice also pops in and out of the factory – usually to check up on Harold and the girls – and her presence always provokes conflict.

The situation comedy arises from Fisher having to operate with his rather motley workforce (who are always trying to dupe him in some way) to meet serious deadlines, satisfy clients' needs and try and stay on top of his ever-increasing debt, ballooned by Bernice, who spends her time shopping at the beauty salon.

All the action plays out on the factory floor and in Fisher's office and in each episode the show features a new clothing line that needs completion within a deadline.

Fishy Fêshuns was reworked by Pierre van Pletzen and June van Merch and produced for Penguin Films by Roberta Durrant, with executive producer Dalene Kotzé. Directors included Bobby Heaney and Andre Odendaal. Music was composed and performed by Jimmy Dludlu.
