Legacy

Channel: M-Net (DStv 101)
TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Telenovela

Legacy

Follows the wealthy Price household, a family at war with itself after the patriarch announces he is stepping down, creating a power vacuum.

An upmarket investment empire was established by Sebastian Price (Deon Lotz), the patriarch of the super-wealthy Price family, decades ago, when he was in his early twenties.

Now he is a silver fox approaching retirement and it is clear that a family member will soon have to take over the reins. But who will it be? And, at what cost?

Sebastian's bitter ex-wife and ruthless first-born daughter will do whatever it takes to ensure that Sebastian's second wife, Dineo, does not push her playboy son into the position of CEO.

The power struggle turns nasty. A witches' brew of betrayal, secrets, lies and revenge.

Stepping into the roles of the current Mrs Price - Dineo - is Kgomotso Christopher; while Sebastian's ex-wife Angelique, a former lawyer who is now a woman of leisure, is played by Michelle Botes.

Mary-anne Barlow plays Felicity, Sebastian's eldest daughter - the villain everybody loves to hate. Felicity has a firm eye on the CEO position in her dad's upmarket investment company.

But first, she has to deal with a complicated hurdle, the only male heir to the Legacy Investments throne: SJ (Anton David Jeftha), Elizabeth's problematic playboy half-brother.

Felicity and SJ are not the only Price siblings, however. Sebastian has three daughters from his first wife: Felicity, Elisabeth and Alexandra, better known as Lexi.

Middle sister Elisabeth is played by Reandi Grey, while Jay Anstey takes on the role of Lexi, the youngest Price sister.

Fun-loving, care-free Lexi is the complete opposite of her two older siblings. She was barely a toddler when her parents divorced, and, not surprisingly, she always finds herself compelled to take her mother's side in quibbles and disagreements.

Middle sister Elisabeth is the calmer and most organised one out of the sisters. When in doubt or crisis, the Price family always rely on Elisabeth to make things happen.

The counterpoint to the Price family is the down-to-Earth Potgieter family faced with the harsh realities of staying afloat against a tide of drama and disappointments.

Patriarch Willem Potgieter (played by Dawid Minnaar) is a recovering alcoholic who bears the scars of the Border War, which drove him to the bottle.

His ego is bruised, his future looks bleak and, having lost his job as a technician at the energy company, he couldn't ensure optimum care for his wife after she was admitted to a public hospital with terminal breast cancer.

But the explosive drama that follows is sparked by Willem's son and daughter, Stefan (Sean-Marco Vorster) and Petra (Trix Vivier), whose lives become entwined with those of the Prices.

Sexy and dangerous Stefan left the police force under odd circumstances and is now working as Sebastian Price's limo driver.

Petra is beautiful, young, idealistic and, in the parlance of our times, "woke"... and jobless.

While following the life and times of the super-wealthy Price family and the down-to-Earth Potgieters, much of the drama and intrigue will play out at the Price's elite investment company.

Siyabonga Thwala plays Msizi Zulu, an ambitious board member who also is the head honcho at Legacy Media and L24 News.

Like Felicity – the company founder's opportunistic daughter - Msizi also has his eye on the coveted position of CEO. Felicity should take note, because nothing will stop him from landing his dream job.

In the role of Nirvana Perumal - Legacy's sharp, witty and tough Investment board chairperson – is Leeanda Reddy.

John, the longest serving employee at the company – in fact, the guy who was there when the doors opened – is brought to life by Don Mlangeni Nawa.

Claws 2

Channel: e.tv
TX Time: 22h00
Genre: Drama

Claws 2

Claws follows the rise of five treacherous manicurists working at the Nail Artisans of Manatee County salon, where there is a lot more going on than silk wraps and pedicures.

At the centre of this diverse group is salon owner Desna (Niecy Nash), who works alongside her salon staff to launder money from Suncoast Rejuvenation, a barely legal pain clinic operated by the Dixie Mafia.

While it has always been Desna's mission to break free of the redneck syndicate and become her own boss, last season saw Desna trade one crime boss for another as the Russian mob took control of both the pain clinic and the salon.

With new Russian management comes new problems for the women to navigate.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Shook": Desna and the girls struggle to keep their hope alive while still working under the thumb of the new Russian regime, spearheaded by Riva.

A blissful Desna remains in the dark about her gangster/gyno boyfriend, Ruval and Virginia tells Dean that she's pregnant with his baby.

A newly domesticated Polly is jubilant when tasked with being a madam for an all-male dance troupe.

Meanwhile, a depressed Uncle Daddy, still reeling from the loss of his beloved Juanda, has been stripped of his Dixie Mafia kingdom and is forced to do menial jobs for the Russians.

The power dynamic shifts once again when Riva's sister, Zlata, arrives to change the game.
 

A Love Song for Latasha

Channel: Netflix South Africa
TX Time: 10h00
Genre: Documentary, True Crime

A Love Song for Latasha

The killing of Latasha Harlins became a flashpoint for the 1992 LA uprising. This documentary explores the 15-year-old's life and dreams.

The injustice surrounding the shooting death of 15-year-old Latasha Harlins at a South Central Los Angeles store became a flashpoint for the city's 1992 civil uprising.

As the Black community expressed its profound pain in the streets, Latasha's friends and family privately mourned the loss of a vibrant child whose full story was never in the headlines.

Nearly three decades later, A Love Song for Latasha removes Latasha from the context of her death and rebuilds an archive of a promising life lost.

Oral history and memories from Latasha's best friend and cousin converge in a dreamlike portrait that shows the impact one brief but brilliant life can have.

Channel: Telemundo (DStv 118)
TX Time: 23h00
Genre: Telenovela

Lord of the Skies 7

In Season 7, to avoid falling into the hands of the American justice, Amado Leal "El Águila Azul", now Amado Casillas, has turned himself in to Bernardo Castillo, Secretary of Security of Mexico.

The DEA commissioner, Joe Navarro, has made every attempt to achieve his extradition.

What he does not know is that Baltazar Ojeda, a CIA Agent, has the plan to eliminate Amado before, since he is the only one who can prove that within the organisation in which both worked together, there is a scheme of corruption and murky management that endangers its existence within it and its freedom.

He has already been transferred to a jail on the outskirts of the State of Mexico and is about to be taken to the airport, under strict security measures, when the Casillas cartel tries to rescue him and Baltazar Ojeda himself tries to kill him.

In the midst of this tension and in parallel, under the supervision of Doña Alba and a specialised doctor, they try a risky procedure to revive Aurelio.
