1Magic (DStv 103)

Honeybear is a quiet storm. Her flagrant style is a ruse; an armour she wears to hide her emotional struggles.
Kirt is a lover (to the ladies), a fighter (to the rest of the world), and a little kid in the body of a woman.
She's the funniest person alive, but even if she knew it, she wouldn't care.
Meanwhile, Indigo is a street-savvy hustler trapped in the body of a well-to-do art school drop-out.
On the edge of the group is Camille, guarded, perceptive, intelligent and awkward.
She wants to be down with the dudes in the skate park and has fought hard for the small space she's carved out with them, but she needs to realise that cool points don't actually add up to the sum of anything, especially in the eyes of the other girls.
In Season 2, the five protagonists are stepping firmly into womanhood and tackling all the challenges it brings.
