Lockdown 3

Channel: Mzansi Magic (DStv 161)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Drama

Last season came to a dramatic end with an injured Monde (Zola Nombona) making a run for it with the stolen diamonds, as Maki (Linda Sebezo) and her nemesis Deborah (Pamela Nomvete) came face to face in an explosive showdown.

Fast forwarding a couple of months later, Season 3 opens with a cliffhanger as Beauty's life is hanging in the balance with her son Njabulo (Mthunzi Ntoyi) spiralling out of control with guilt behind bars.

Deborah has to deal with a potential suspension after Monde's escape, while nursing a gruesome injury at the hands of Maki Magwaza. Maki's revenge plot gains momentum, leaving the once powerful Deborah shattered and alone.

Elke Skewe Pot 2

Channel: kykNET (DStv 144)
TX Time: 20h30
Genre: Comedy

The Elke Skewe Pot (ESP) ladies are back in full force for another season filled with love, calamities and romantic catastrophes.

Sandra (played this season by Hélène Truter, replacing Franci Swanepoel in the role) is forced to admit to herself that she does yearn to have someone special in her life, when the handsome albeit chauvinistic Renier (Kevin Smith) takes over the building rented by ESP.

Benny's new waiter/barman, Anton (Neels Clasen), is a hit with everyone; he is fun and wise with a sharp sense of humour, and has a hawk's eye that doesn't miss a beat.
