Prodigal Son

Channel: M-Net (DStv 101)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Thriller, Drama

Prodigal Son

Imagine, for a second, that you catch killers for a living. Your father is one of the most notorious serial killers that ever lived, and he taught you everything there is to know about the criminal mind.

Now, imagine partnering with your serial killer father to help the police solve other murders...

Prodigal Son centres on Malcolm Bright, a psychologist who has a gift for understanding how serial killers think, because his father, Dr. Martin Whitly, was once a notorious serial killer called The Surgeon.

Bright is the best criminal psychologist around, and murder is the family business.

He uses his twisted genius to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers, all while dealing with his manipulative mother, Jessica Whitly, his annoyingly normal sister, Ainsly Whitly and a homicidal father still looking to bond with his prodigal son, not to mention his own constantly evolving neuroses.

The only way Bright feels normal is by solving cases with the help of his longtime mentor, NYPD Detective Gil Arroyo.

Arroyo is one of the best detectives around, and he expects no less from his team – Detective Dani Powell, a headstrong no-nonsense cop who quickly becomes impressed with Bright's work; and Detective JT Tarmel, a born-and-bred New Yorker who questions whether Bright is a psychopath himself.

During an investigation, Malcolm uncovers a striking bit of information - the killer they are investigating is impersonating another serial killer... his father, Dr. Whitly.

Bright enlists the help of his father to uncover the impersonator and solve other murders. But will this unsuspecting dream team become dangerous?

Is Malcolm more like his father than he'd care to admit? Will the serial killer father get his son back?

The Chef Show: Volume 3

Cooking is a journey. And making a meal is about more than just food.

It's about appreciating friends, family and tradition. An opportunity to come together. To learn, to share and to celebrate different flavours, cultures and people.

In The Chef Show, actor/director Jon Favreau and Chef Roy Choi reunite after their film Chef to embark on a new adventure.

The two friends experiment with their favourite recipes and techniques, baking, cooking, exploring and collaborating with some of the biggest names in the entertainment and culinary world.

From sharing a meal with the Avengers cast in Atlanta, to smoking brisket in Texas with world-renowned pitmaster Aaron Franklin, to honouring the legendary food critic Jonathan Gold in Los Angeles - Favreau and Choi embrace their passion for food, but more importantly their love for bringing people together over a delicious meal.
