SABC1's new Sunday night comedy-drama 13 Ways to Find Mr Right premiered this past Sunday (6 February) at 19h30 with radio presenter Kea Zawadi in her first starring role.

Kea had a guest role on M-Net's drama series Inconceivable in late 2020 but that was only a one-episode appearance so this is her first primetime headline role.

The series centres round her character Nkuli, a junior journalist at Dazzle magazine who needs to take urgent action when she hears she might be retrenched.

She attempts to save her job by writing an anonymous dating column to prove whether she can find Mr Right in 13 weeks.
