Knight Life with Gladys

Channel: SABC3
TX Time: 19h30
Genre: Documentary, Music, Docu-Reality

Knight Life with Gladys

Gladys Knight is one of the most legendary musical artists of our time, but is also a tough businesswoman, entrepreneur, actress and humanitarian.

Balancing it all is a constant challenge, but the "The Empress of Soul" hardly ever misses a beat as she juggles her home life with her iconic status.

In this reality special, the pressure is really on Gladys. Her out of control schedule is taking a toll on her relationship with her fun-loving husband, William, who yearns for more romantic time with his soul mate.

Gladys' over-the-top charismatic brother and former "Pip," Bubba, has decided it's his time to shine. He has sung backup to his superstar sister long enough and decides that it's finally time to go solo. But he needs Gladys' help, of course, since he will have to dip into her set time to get on stage.

Gladys' son, Shanga, is opening a restaurant in Atlanta with Gladys' name on it. However, with her name on the marquee, Gladys will make sure the tastes, atmosphere and even the back entrance are living up to her standards, which may prove to be an unreasonable task for her son because Gladys isn't going to just settle.

Robert Durst: An ID Murder Mystery

In February 1982, Kathie Durst, the wife of mercurial millionaire Robert Durst, disappears without a trace. Clues soon put investigators on Robert's trail but with little evidence, Kathie's case goes cold.

Then, 18 years later, a new detective takes over and leads begin to emerge. As investigators prepare to speak with Robert's best friend, "mob princess" Susan Berman, she is murdered in her own home.

Now a person of interest in two high-profile cases, Robert Durst vanishes.

This series examines the jaw-dropping saga that has spanned decades. It's a story of power, privilege and murder, featuring exclusive interviews with friends and family about the case that started a nationwide manhunt and the gruesome discovery that brings Robert out of hiding and facing trial later this year.
