Judas Kiss

Drama series which revolves around a limelight-loving businessman who turns his construction company into a reality show, betraying his architect wife, who in turn seeks revenge on him.

He spins Nandi's architectural designs into garnering building contracts worth millions.

As part of a strategy to make sure the company is the talk of the town (and aided by his love of the spotlight), Marcus turns the business into a reality show, propelling them to the status of celebrity power couple.

Nandi, however, is the opposite of her attention-seeking husband - she does everything by the book and hates the limelight.

The Muhali family, including son Mulaifa (Karabo Oberem) and daughter Gugulethu (Andile Masia), finds themselves in the spotlight from the outside world after Judas lands a contract to design and build a a house for the owner of a major soccer club.

Amidst all this, Nandi catches Marcus in a compromising position with none other than her sister Zamazulu (Mbalenhle Mavimbela), who has betrayed her in the worst possible way.

The Muhali home is turned into a war zone as Nandi prepares and serves her husband the one meal best served cold: revenge...

Other cast members in the series include Kabelo Moalusi, Cedric Fourie, Makhosazana Ndlovu, Hastings Muravha and Hayley Owen.

Genre: Reality Competition

The Coolest OG's

Reality show in which 12 elderly people compete for a grand cash prize of R100,000 and the title of "Coolest OG" by going through a series of unusual challenges to determine if they have what it takes to bridge the generation gap.

An OG is someone who is incredibly exceptional, authentic and excellent in a classic way - an expert in many facets of life and someone who has been around for a long time.

Featuring contestants from all walks of life, the series was shot across the country over 50 days and 50 nights during the height of the global pandemic, as the show captured the lives of 12 senior citizen from the ages of 60 to 80, confined in the safety of their own homes and exposed to fun and unusual challenges.

The contestants are judged by a panel of four 20-year-old experts:

Zipho Sithebe
A fashion expert and a student pilot

Sbu Makamedi
A "performance expert" and actor

Adon Domeyer
A passionate international music producer and engineer

Allison Greenlees
A food expert who has been running a successful catering business since the age of 16

In each episode one contestant is eliminated based on their performance and swag - and the judges all have to agree on who will leave the show.

The contestants go through various challenges ranging from modelling to song writing, music videos, cooking, gaming, art, acting and other challenges.

Each contestant is sent a package containing a phone on which they will receive instructions for their weekly challenges.

Each of their lounges are transformed into mini studios so they can compete from the comfort and safety of their own homes, sometimes with the help of a family member or an influencer.

They have never met each other and have no idea how each other perform in the various challenges.

American Cartel

Channel: Investigation Discovery (DStv 171 / StarSat 223)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series

American Cartel

On the night of 15 November, 2003, shots were fired in the parking lot of a hotel in Burbank, California.

The shootout led to the execution-style murder of Officer Matthew Pavelka and left Officer Gregory Campbell critically injured.

With one of their own taken and another's life hanging in the balance, Burbank PD immediately called in support from dozens of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to unite on an epic scale and track down Pavelka's killer.

The unprecedented manhunt quickly lead them to the heart of gang territory where they made a series of unsettling discoveries about the local Vineland Boys gang, whose caches of automatic weapons and high-grade methamphetamines suggested they were more violent, more sophisticated and stealthier than previously thought.

Once they realise their suspect, David Garcia, seemingly vanished in the night across the border, they discover that the Vineland Boys' connections to Mexico's most dangerous drug cartels is very real – and very deadly.

After two weeks of exhaustive work and the collaboration of multiple law enforcement agencies, the hunt for David Garcia comes to an end with a high-stakes operation South of the border.

The battle for Officer Pavelka's killer is won, but the war against the gang that created him is just beginning.

Top-tier investigators create a Task Force which soon grows into an unprecedented Federal wiretap case, revealing a web of narcotics and violence.

The staggering criminal enterprise stretches across America, including infiltrating Burbank's own local government, with roots that run all the way to El Chapo Guzman's Sinaloa Cartel.

What began as a race to find a cop killer quickly becomes a mission to take down a gang that brought the drugs and violence of the cartels to American suburbs, and exposes how Mexican cartels were already deeply entrenched in the US.

American Cartel showcases commentary from many of the law enforcement members who worked tirelessly to bring Pavelka's killer to justice, including Ret. Det. Gregory Campbell (Burbank PD) who survived the incident.

The doc also showcases US Marshals and various representatives from the LAPD including members from their Gang Unit, SWAT, Special Operations and members of the Major Crimes Unit, such as s Ret. Lt. Adam Bercovici, who lent his investigators and surveillance teams to the manhunt and later the task force.

Additionally, providing his own expert insight, an ex "Mexican Mafia" gang member in silhouette and disguised as "Mundo", sheds light into the inner workings of the gangs and their ties to the Mexican cartels.

His identity remains anonymous.
