Huis Lelieveld is a South African, Afrikaans-language television sitcom created by Willie Esterhuizen as a spin-off from Ouboet en Wors in which the character of Molly is no longer a dental assistant, but the matron of a retirement village called Huis Lelieveld.
In the last episode of Ouboet en Wors, Molly (Lizz Meiring) was informed that Dr Proctor was emigrating, and her services were no longer needed.
She didn't let this setback get her down in the dumps, so she she ended up at Huis Lelieveld.
Molly's husband, Wors (Willie Esterhuizen), comes to visit his wife regularly to find out which of the personnel or residents are giving her grief.
Gielie (Wynand van Vollenstee), the handyman and driver from Ouboet en Wors, also got a job at the retirement village – after all, he has a very soft heart, especially for the elderly.
Hélène Truter also returns as Tannie Poppie, one of the residents of Huis Lelieveld. Poppie knows everything. And she shares it directly with the viewer. She likes spreading gossip, without feeling bad about it.
Huis Lelieveld's residents include Fleur Pot (Elma Potgieter); Gielie's mom, Martha Goosen (Karin van der Laag); Brand Louw (Cobus Visser) and his wife Blaartjie Louw (Yvonne Schoeman).
From a hip retired lady and a snob without money to someone who equally loves baking and moaning – these residents still have plenty of life in them.
We also get to know the Huis Lelieveld personnel very well. There's pastor Dou Droel (Matt Stern), who has a weakness for women; Spanner Proes (Reginald Hufkie), the factotum with an interesting life away from the retirement village; and Koekie de Kok (Lara Lourens), Pastor Droel's assistant and a part time exotic dancer.
Huis Lelieveld is an M-Net Original Production, produced by kykNET and WESTEL. Willie Esterhuizen is the writer and producer of the series. The supervising producer for kykNET is Loren Greyling.
Willie and Pieter Esterhuizen are the series directors.
