Killing Eve

Channel: FOX (DStv 125 / StarSat 130)
TX Time: 20h45
Genre: Comedy-Drama, Thriller

Killing Eve

Based on the novels by Luke Jennings and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Killing Eve centers on two distinctly different women.

Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored, whip-smart MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn't fulfil her fantasies of being a spy.

Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her.

Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.

In the series premiere, "Nice Face": MI5 security officer Eve Polastri is bored in her job and yearns for a more exciting life.

When a Russian politician is murdered, Eve is tasked with protecting the only witness and soon finds herself on a collision course with a violent and extraordinary assassin, Villanelle.

TX Time: 22h30
Genre: Telenovela


Leo Hernández is a 28-year-old boy raised in the Lacandona forest by a man he believed to be his father, who taught him how to survive in the forest.

Even though he can read and write, Leo denies culture and his roughness has never allowed him to fall in love.

Morena Madrigal is a 25-year-old girl who studied in New York and is "technologically dependent". Unfortunate in the ways of romance, she always falls in love with the wrong men.

Morena makes a trip to the Lacandona forest and meets Leo, but the relationship between the two cannot work because they are very different from each other.

After that, she travels to Mexico City in search of her grandfather and starts working at a company owned by the Sirenio family.

At the same time, Leo discovers that the man who raised him is not his father and that his real surname is Sirenio. He goes to Mexico City in search of his real family and, right in the Sirenio house, he meets up with Morena.

She will teach him how to behave in the city and, despite the huge differences, they fall madly in love with each other.

Lost Relics of the Knights Templar

Channel: HISTORY (DStv 186)
TX Time: 20h15
Genre: Documentary Series, History

Lost Relics of the Knights Templar

Follows one of the world's most prolific yet unknown treasure hunters, Hamilton White, and his long-time friend, Carl Cookson, as they trace the origin of an amazing hoard of relics – believed to have belonged to the legendary Knights Templar.

Until today, no major items belonging to the Knights Templar – the medieval Special Forces of Christendom, made famous by The Crusades – have ever been recovered.

However, Hamilton and Carl believe they have at last discovered what everyone else has been looking for – a treasure trove of artifacts which reveal who the Templars were, how they worshiped, and why they were targeted, imprisoned and wiped out by Papal decree in 1307.

With possible key Templar relics in their possession – a black obsidian chalice, a Templar sword, an alabaster libation vessel, and an iron reliquary box – the duo travel all over Europe and the Middle East to trace the origins of their treasure.

Hamilton has operated in virtual anonymity for more than 30 years but is now breaking cover for the first time with property tycoon Carl to reveal the secrets of his multimillion-pound treasure hunting business.

The series will follow Hamilton and Carl as they seek to establish the provenance of each relic from one of the most secretive organisations in history before they reveal the hoard to the world.

Returning this season are Cynthia Bailey, Eva Marcille, Kandi Burruss, Nene Leakes and Porsha Williams.

Also, Kenya Moore is back with the family she's always wanted, ready to spice things up. Marlo Hampton and Tanya Sam return as friends of the cast.

Busy as ever, Cynthia Bailey is ecstatic to continue building her entrepreneurial empire, opening Bailey Wine Cellar for all Atlanta wine enthusiasts.

After a whirlwind romance with her boyfriend, she's on cloud nine after he made it official, proposing to her in front of all her family and friends.

Cautious, but optimistic, Cynthia wonders if she can mend her roller-coaster relationship with friend-turned-foe Nene Leakes.

Still elated from the wedding of her dreams, Eva Marcille is expecting baby number three, while juggling the ups and downs of her friendships, the challenges of pregnancy, and trying to find her dream home before the arrival of her baby.

Always in high demand, Kandi Burruss's life shows no signs of slowing down as she expands her empire while expanding her family with the help of a surrogate.

Her husband optimistically seeks to open more businesses, but with so many balls in the air, Kandi worries they won't have time to get everything done before the arrival of their newest family member.

Always moving forward, Nene Leakes has reconnected with her husband, who is now cancer-free, but tensions rise when she is reunited with former friends to hash out past grievances.

Porsha Williams is over the moon about her baby girl Pilar Jhena and couldn't be more excited to be a mother.

Dealing with the aftermath of salacious rumours surrounding her fiancé's infidelity, she is faced with the cold truth that her happily-ever-after may be on hold until she can figure out where her relationship stands.

Back and bolder than ever... Kenya Moore has finally gotten what she's always wanted with her husband and baby Brooklyn, but a fairytale ending isn't always what it seems and despite her best efforts, her roller coaster relationship may be coming to an end.

Although motherhood has been kind to her and she enjoys embracing her softer side, she will never walk away from a challenge or shy away from speaking her mind.

In the Season 12 premiere, "The Moore the Merrier": Kenya relishes in her new role as mom to her daughter Brooklyn, while struggling to maintain her long distance marriage to Marc.

Porsha's relationship with Dennis hits a rough patch after he betrays her trust.
