Please Step In 6

Angie Diale returns to mediate a new season of interventions, this time with a focus on problem relationships between mothers and their adult children.

There are 13 episodes in the season, which maintains the same format of delving into unhealed traumas that have caused rifts between family members.

Before I Do
Premiere date:
Wednesday, 10 July at 20h00

A new reality series that focuses on couples who want to take their relationship to the next level (e.g moving in together, getting married, having a baby or starting a joint business) but are faced with complexities that threaten the dream of their future together.
Each episode introduces a couple who must overcome the challenges life throws at them - be it meddling family members, infidelity, lies, addictions or friends that prevent the couples from reaching their goals.

Guided by insights from the show's  in-house clinical psychologist, Anele Siswana, the series explores whether love truly conquers all and aims to empower audiences by shedding light on how to improve relationships with partners, especially when making huge life decisions as a couple.

It's hosted by Andile Gaelesiwe of Khumbul'ekhaya fame and is produced by Mokoshale Productions.
