The 4th Royalty Soapie Awards: all the nominees

American Soul

Channel: SABC2
TX Time: 20h30
Genre: Drama, Period Drama

American Soul

Everyone knows Soul Train, but not everyone knows what happened when the music stopped.

This is the untold story of the struggle to make the dream of Soul Train come true.

Inspired by the personal trials and professional successes of a young, ambitious and troubled impresario Don Cornelius, the '70s period drama is an unflinching look at the entrepreneur, his Soul Train dancers, and musicians set against the backdrop of a cutthroat Hollywood - how they work, play, rise and fall.

Battles with record labels for top talent and off-camera drama as young dancers vie for the spotlight stand in the way of a 30-something Don Cornelius, who is sacrificing all that he loves to follow his dream.

The series chronicles "the hippest trip in America" and what became of one of the most prominent and groundbreaking television shows for African-American culture.

Music plays a critical role in the series, as today's stars portray the icons of the Soul Train era.

Sinqua Walls (Power, Teen Wolf) stars as Don and Kelly Rowland plays the recurring role of Gladys Knight.

A Million Little Things 2

Channel: Vuzu (DStv 116)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Drama, Comedy-Drama

A Million Little Things 2

They say friendship isn't one big thing, it's a million little things; and that's true for a group of friends from Boston who bonded under unexpected circumstances.

Some have achieved success, others are struggling in their careers and relationships, but all of them feel stuck in life.

After one of them dies unexpectedly, it's just the wake-up call the others need to finally start living. Along the way, they discover that friends may be the one thing to save them from themselves.

In the Season 2 premiere, "coming home": When Delilah goes into labour, Eddie feels compelled to tell Katherine the truth about being the baby's father.

Meanwhile, Gary and Maggie struggle with living together post-cancer, and Rome and Regina continue to be at odds about having a baby of their own.
