Meerkat Manor: Rise of the Dynasty

Meerkat Manor: Rise of the Dynasty continues the compelling saga of the heartstring-tugging, dramatic tale of survival revolving around three families of meerkats who are descendants of the legendary meerkat matriarch, Flower.

Neighbours and rivals who share a bloodline are forced to compete for food and resources in an environment that is undergoing a great deal of change: the Kalahari Desert in South Africa.

This is a soap opera with a difference — the main protagonists are 30cm high, live underground in burrows and live on a diet of worms, insects and lizards.

We'll get to know each individual character as intimately as any human soap star, but here the relationships, births, deaths and conflicts are real.

In the series premiere, "New Beginnings": Swift, great grand-daughter of the late Flower, now leads the Whiskers with the help of long-term partner Brea.

Her thirteenth litter is due to emerge and things aren't so rosy for Flint Lockwood, the matriarch of the Hakuna Matata gang.
