Season 1

Treknet is a South African television sitcom based on the comic strip of the same name by Gavin Thomson and Dave Gomersall, and set in the world of a small Western Cape fishing community.

The series revolves around Boet Pieterse (Jody Abrahams) and John Smith (Leon Kruger) who are friends and fishermen. They live together in Kalk Bay in a little fisherman's house that belongs to Boet and fish every day to sustain their lazy lifestyle.

A collection of zany supporting characters make up the residents in the small fishing community, including Mr Williams (Ivan Abrahams) and Mrs Williams (June van Merch) - Boet and John's elderly, nosy neighbours.

Sannie (Erica Wessels) and Annie (Lee-Ann van Rooi) own the local fish and chips take-away called Bakspat. Sannie is hopelessly in love with John, who can never pluck up the courage to commit, and Annie continually swats away Boet's attempts at romancing her.

Wiseman Sithole (Mbulelo Grootman) and Oortjies (Alfredo Joseph) complete the quirky group of characters, who remind you that sometimes the 'simpler' life is not so simple after all...

Treknet is an M-Net Original Production, produced by Penguin Films for kykNET. The series was written by Leon Kruger and directed by Shirley Ellis and Andre Odendaal. The supervising producers for kykNET were Marida Swanepoel and Henrietta Gryffenberg.
