NCIS: Hawai'i

The procedural NCIS franchise continues on the seductive shores of the Aloha State with NCIS: Hawai'i, where the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor, Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey), has thrived and risen through the ranks by equal parts confidence and strategy in a system that has pushed back on her every step of the way.

Together with her unwavering team of specialists, they balance duty to family and country while investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security and the mysteries of the sun-drenched island paradise itself.

In the series premiere, "Pilot": An experimental Naval aircraft crashes on Oahu, and Tennant and her team must find who is behind it before classified state secrets are exposed.


Channel: S3
TX Time: 19h30
Genre: Comedy-Drama


Centers on Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles (Jim Carrey), an icon of children's television and a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him.

But when this beloved personality's family begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairytale, fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope.

The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity.

Throughout the season, Jeff begins to push back against the limits of the well-oiled machine that is "Mr. Pickles' Puppet Time," and of his executive producer, Seb.

Seb fears Jeff's mental state could ruin the branding empire they've built, and thus begins preparing the show for a life after Jeff, while Deirdre, the head puppet maker, grapples with her own personal and professional life issues.

Popular home renovators Dave and Jenny Marrs bring more worn-out houses back to life in the new season of Fixer to Fabulous.

In the new 13-episode run, the husband-wife duo continue to overhaul old homes in Northwest Arkansas, all while raising five young children and managing their family farm.

Jenny, the creative influence behind their personalised renovations, specialises in designing spaces that are warm and welcoming for families, while Dave tackles the construction with aplomb, crediting his passion for reviving old homes.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Kid-Friendly Lakeside Retreat": A couple bought a waterfront home with a stunning, panoramic view of the lake for their whole family to enjoy.

Dave and Jenny have their work cut out for them as they turn this humdrum house into an artsy, kid-friendly home with its own indoor treehouse.

Megaboere 6

Channel: kykNET & kie (DStv 145)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Documentary Series, Afrikaans

Megaboere 6

During the past three seasons, MegaBoere made a focus shift from big economic scale farmers to successful farmers that don't necessarily contribute in terms of profit or turnover, but more in terms of their approach to farming.

This season the show still delves into leadership against the backdrops of agriculture, giving recognition to farmers that are empowering other people, or mega-marketers, or achievers in agriculture technology, science and marketing.

Season 6 will put a spotlight on a new generation of farmers - young, dynamic farmers who will be taking over the reigns slowly but surely.

Besides going to all the provinces in South Africa for the recordings, the team also made a turn at the Nile in the North of Uganda.

The presenter, Kabous Meiring, tells the stories of the farmers in her own way.

In one of the episodes, she gets to the heart of the story about the agreement between the Makgoba-stam and the agri-giant, ZZ2, which took longer than a decade to work out.

Kabous also returns to Piet Karsten from Karsten Boerdery, who was featured on the first season. Piet and his son, Pieter, tell more about an empowerment transaction with the women on the farm.

And at Barkly-West on the shores of the Vaal river, Kabous looks at what influences a successful business such as Wildeklawer has on the wider community.

However, the city and police department have changed dramatically in the decade he's been away, and he must adapt to a criminal justice system in the midst of its own moment of reckoning.

Throughout the series, we will follow Stabler's journey to find absolution and rebuild his life, while leading a new elite task force that is taking apart the city's most powerful criminal syndicates one by one.

In the Season 2 premiere, "The Man with No Identity": After taking down Wheatley's drug empire and discovering his wife's killer, Det. Stabler must infiltrate a notorious crime family aiming to take over New York City's cocaine trade.

Sgt. Bell is forced to work with a rival colleague when their investigations collide.
