Nancy Drew

Nancy Drew is a brilliant teenaged detective whose sense of self had come from solving mysteries in her hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine - until her mother's untimely death derails Nancy's college plans.

Devastated by her mother's passing, Nancy swears off crime-solving while crossing off the days until she can re-apply to college.

But when a socialite is murdered, Nancy finds herself a prime suspect in the crime, along with a group of other teens present at the scene: Nancy's nemesis from high school, George Fan; a rich girl with a mysterious past, Bess Marvin; Nancy's secret boyfriend, Ned "Nick" Nickerson; and amiable burnout Ace.

The five of them must team up to clear their own names - encountering emotional entanglements and even more mysteries along the way.

Nancy's reawakening brings her into conflict with her widowed father, Carson Drew, who is dating Detective Karen Hart.

And, when a supernatural presence begins to haunt Nancy's investigation, she discovers that the current crime has an astonishing connection to the unsolved murder of a local girl.

Whether the ghost is here to help, or hinder Nancy remains to be seen, but one thing's for sure: Nancy's going to have to unravel the clues from both the living and the dead to solve the crimes.

Darcey & Stacey

Fans of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days have watched Darcey through four seasons of globe-trotting, long-distance love affairs followed by heartbreaking, tear-filled break-ups, always with her devoted twin Stacey by her side to lend a shoulder to cry on.

Now get to know the sisters on a new level - their lives, their loves and their supportive family members.

In Darcey & Stacey, the twins open the doors to their lives while they juggle relationships, family and their unique world of being twins.

As the series begins, we follow while Darcey heals over yet another failed relationship with British ex-boyfriend Tom and as Stacey gears up for a major step in her own love life.

After a five-year engagement to Albanian fiancé Florian, they have finally been approved for the K-1 Visa.

Florian and Stacey will have 90 days to get married once Florian arrives, but Darcey has lingering doubts about his commitment to Stacey after photos of him with another woman surfaced online, sparking rumours that he was unfaithful.

The twins have always done everything together - they were married and divorced at the same time, have raised their families in the same home and even got cosmetic surgery together.

Now, Stacey is preparing for her new life with Florian while Darcey is on a mission to find a whole new love.

And, while Darcey always seems to get hit by Cupid's international arrow, she finds, once again, that love is never easy.

From their hair extensions and nails to their fashion, Darcey and Stacey are as over-the-top in their style as their joint determination to find international love.

Yet they are also mothers, sisters and women in their 40s yearning for stable, long-lasting love.

This season will also take a closer look at the rest of the Silva family including their father Mike, Darcey's teenage daughters Aniko and Aspen and their mother, Nancy.

TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Food

Valerie's Home Cooking 8

Valerie Bertinelli is known as a successful actress (Hot in Cleveland, Touched by an Angel) but she is also a homegrown whiz in the kitchen.

Influenced by family recipes, many passed down from one generation to the next, Valerie's cooking is modern, easy, relatable and satisfyingly delectable.

Join Valerie as she shares her time-tested passion for cooking delicious meals for her friends and family.

In the Season 8 premiere, "Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?": Valerie challenges herself to use every part of the chicken in a delicious and creative menu, just as her mother and Nonnie used to do as part of their belief that nothing should go to waste.

Hannah Hart joins Valerie to enjoy the benefits of her chicken challenge.

Die Broer Toer

Channel: kykNET (DStv 144)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Travel, Reality, Afrikaans

Die Broer Toer

Three brothers, three bikes, no licenses, one big adventure – all the ingredients for Die Broer Toer.

kykNET airs the pilot episode of this travel reality series starring actor Bennie Fourie (Phil 101, Hotel) and his two brothers.

Bennie is famous for being funny, but he and his brothers - Reynold and Wilbrie - are also known for their legendary road trips.

From road tripping in a souped-up Nissan Sani at university to hiking trails with the family - if there's a road, they'll take it.

Even as the demands of adulthood pull the brothers in opposite directions, they always manage to find time for one more trip.

If there is one thing the brothers have in common (and it really is only one thing), it's not walking away from a challenge.

And their next epic journey is sure to test all three because this time around they're doing things differently.

Instead of Reynold and Wilbrie taking the lead, as they usually do, Bennie is responsible for putting the whole trip together, while his brothers will have to accept the challenge of letting go.

The three brothers chose to explore the Tankwa Karoo on motorbikes for the pilot episode of Die Broer Toer. If their is a positive reaction to the show, they will convert it into a longer series.

Competition has always been their primary source of entertainment, from the made-up games they played on the smallholding where they grew up to the made-up games at university where they didn't grow up.

Create a game and play it. The winner gets a reward and the loser is penalised. This family tradition is a crucial part of the trip because the road is long and the comforts few.

So, when it comes to rewards and penalties, the stakes are sky high.

Louis Theroux: The Night in Question

Channel: SABC3
TX Time: 20h30
Genre: Documentary

Louis Theroux: The Night in Question

At a time of increased scrutiny about what constitutes sexual assault, Louis Theroux heads to American college campuses and comes face-to-face with students whose universities have found them responsible for sexual assault.

In recent years, US colleges have been urged to enforce a stricter code of sexual conduct amongst students, employing specialist administrators to carry out investigations into alleged misdemeanours, with those found responsible facing permanent exclusion.

For the victims of sexual assault these new processes, which require less stringent levels of proof than criminal cases, have allowed accusations that might have never been heard in a court of law to be vindicated.

But alleged perpetrators believe the attempt to be more vigilant about rape and assault has turned into an overreaction that tramples on due process, and harms innocent people.

At the start of this journey, Louis meets a neuroscience major called Saif Khan, who has been accused of raping a fellow student.

His university is investigating the claims separately even though Saif has been found not-guilty in a court of law.

Though Saif continuously pleads his innocence, Louis is drawn into an increasingly complex world, where separating fact from fiction becomes increasingly challenging.

He also meets young women whose claims of sexual assault have previously fallen on deaf ears, who believe that a new approach to handling allegations of sex crimes is not only necessary but long overdue.

One such student is Mollie Johnson, whose experience is a powerful reminder that there is now a broader understanding of what sexual assault looks like.
