Revolves around three sisters whose paths reconnect after a family tragedy brings all three back to their place of youth and childhood - the Waterfront in Cape Town.

Boat-building patriarch Ben Myburgh (Dawid Minnaar) is dead. This brings his three daughters - Julia (Milan Murray, pictured), Anna (Rolanda Marais) and Kate (Trix Vivier) - back to the family business at the Cape Town harbour.

But only one of them will inherit - and not what she expected - in this dark story of secrets, sibling rivalry and gentrification.

Waterfront was originally envisaged as a soap opera – it was shortlisted with The Wild when M-Net was looking for a soap, and again with Suidooster when kykNET wanted one.

But when director Jaco Bouwer got involved, his references were rather family dramas like Bloodline and Nordic noir like The Killing.

Together with screenwriter Leon Kruger, Bouwer rebooted the show to focus on the complicated human relationships at the heart of the story, shifting the primary locations from the brightly lit shopping mall to the shadowy nooks and crannies of the harbour.

Channel: Mzansi Wethu (DStv 163)
TX Time: 18h30
Genre: Dating Game Show


Reality dating show hosted by Siyabonga Radebe, in which a bachelor or bachelorette is matched up with four potential suitors who have to jump through hoops before they can bag a date and possibly land the love of their lives.

The suitor is put to the test by their potential love interest, family and their friends.

In the first challenge, all four suitors go through a questioning session by a panel that includes the love interest – whom they don't know – and must prove why they could be the best "Ms / Mr" Right for the seeker.

One suitor is eliminated after this interrogation, leaving three to battle it out for the affection of their potential bae.

The next segment is a tough one – trying to impress and convince a family member that they are "The One" who can take care of their precious loved one's heart.

The challenge can be anything from physical agility to emotional intelligence, so the suitor has to bring their A-Game along. No pressure! Only two admirers are left standing after this gruelling round.

Enter the Love Interest...
