Season 1


Miseducation is a South African comedy-drama television series which revolves around a wannabe influencer who - after a public humiliation - enrolls in a small-town university, where she aspires to regain her social status.

Mbali Hadebe (Buntu Petse) finds herself on the cancelled list after the police raid her house and seize her family's assets because of her mother, Brenda Hadebe's (Baby Cele) corrupt political dealings.

Embarrassed and with her tail between her legs, Mbali runs to Grahamstown University in Makhanda, where she strives to reinvent herself and escape her mother's corrupt legacy.

Going through the most is not for everyone. Mbali is determined to start afresh in this small university town when her mother's antics nullify her IT girl status, sending her straight to the cancelled list. 

Unsubscribing from the drama in Johannesburg brings new challenges as she quickly becomes the talk of Grahamstown University.

Nothing about Mbali is basic - including her reinvention strategy.

From driving the campus cab, appearing on the campus gossip show, The Spill by Raeesah (Nicole Bessick), and even running an SRC campaign, Mbali's journey back to the top is encouraged and inspired by her new misfit squad, Jay (Prev Reddy) and Natalie (Micaela Tucker).

And the SRC campaign she's running?

All inspired by campus rowing champion, local hottie, and now dramatic situationship, Sivu Levine (Lunga Shabalala) who's up against veteran President, longtime campus activist aka 'Comrade' Caesar (Mpho Sebeng) and Hotep conspiracy theorist, Mubarak (Ebenhaezer Dibakwane).

What Mbali doesn't count on are her haters, who will stop at nothing to bring her right back down to Earth.

Will Mbali's quest for supremacy leave her newfound relationships in the dust, or will she realise there is more to life than fame and popularity?

The series features actresses Baby Cele and Camilla Waldman taking on roles as complicated mothers to Mbali and Sivu, respectively.

The series stars Buntu Petse, Lunga Shabalala, Baby Cele, Prev Reddy, Mpho Sebeng, Micaela Tucker, Mandisa Nduna, Camilla Waldman, Nicole Bessick, Ebenhaezer Dibakwane, Sechaba Ramphele, Luyanda Zwane and Mamarumo Marokane.

Created by Rethabile Ramaphakela, Katleho Ramaphakela, Miseducation is produced by Burnt Onion Productions.

The executive producers are Katleho Ramaphakela, Rethabile Ramaphakela and Tshepo Ramaphakela; Phuthi Nakene is the series producer.
