aYeYe 2: Stripped

The first season initially followed three male best friends navigating messy love lives, testy friendships and soaring careers.

Now converted into an anthology series, the new season tells the story of a rich stay-at-home mom who becomes an adult content creator in order to maintain her lifestyle after her baby daddy dies and his family takes everything.

Rosemary Zimu stars as Zoleka, a 30-year-old left on the verge of destitution.

This forces her to find other ways to keep her lavish life and to keep her son off the street.

Forced to take ownership of her life and to adapt or die, will Zoleka make it?

After all, there's only one way to go after hitting rock bottom... right?

With the first season originally set against the backdrop of the hip and creative Maboneng Precinct of Johannesburg, Ayeye: Stripped takes us into the world of the 1% (and those pretending to be the 1%), set in swanky Bryanston.

Ayeye: Stripped also stars Zama Ngcobo, Luthando 'BU' Mthembu, Kealeboga Masango, Moya Maweni, Pabee Moganedi, Tebogo Thobejane and Charles Phasha.

Dessert Games

Dessert Games

Guy Fieri has handed the keys to his grocery store over to dessert master Duff Goldman and given Duff carte blanche to remodel the store, restock the shelves and sugarcoat his grocery games.

Each week Duff will test the skills of a new batch of four pastry chefs as they race the aisles shopping, preparing, and plating confectionary creations in three rounds of epic baking challenges.

From desserts using savoury ingredients to store-bought treat makeovers, and to the classic dessert imposters, the contestants must use shopping shortcuts and food-hacks to rise to the top.

The one that impresses a rotating panel of judges with their baking talents to cream the competition with their desserts will earn a grand prize of $10,000.

In the series premiere, "Welcome to Sweet City": Guy Fieri is letting his buddy Duff Goldman temporarily turn Flavortown Market into Sweet City and invite some of America's best pastry chefs to compete in his diabolical Dessert Games.

First, they must make an extravagant deep-fried dessert on a budget that Guy has secretly downsized.

Then, they must race against the clock to make a late night guilty pleasure in only 20 minutes.

Finally, Guy gifts Duff with one of his newest games: a giant gumball machine that determines which wild ingredient must be featured in a tricked-out ice cream sandwich.

Whose frozen treat will earn them a guaranteed $10,000?

The Sandman

After years of imprisonment, Morpheus - the King of Dreams - embarks on a journey across worlds to find what was stolen from him and restore his power.

Neil Gaiman co-developed and executive produced this adaptation of his comic series starring Tom Sturridge as Dream.

There is another world that waits for all of us when we close our eyes and sleep - a place called the Dreaming, where The Sandman, Master of Dreams, gives shape to all of our deepest fears and fantasies.

But when Dream is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for a century, his absence sets off a series of events that will change both the dreaming and waking worlds forever.

To restore order, Dream must journey across different worlds and timelines to mend the mistakes he's made during his vast existence, revisiting old friends and foes, and meeting new entities - both cosmic and human - along the way.

The Sandman is a rich, character-driven blend of myth and dark fantasy woven together over the course of ten epic chapters following Dream's many adventures.

Surviving Jeffrey Epstein

Channel: eReality (Openview 108)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Documentary Series, True Crime

Surviving Jeffrey Epstein

A year after disgraced financier and sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein was found hanged in his jail cell, Lifetime reveals the horrifying truth of his three-decade reign of abuse, through the eyes of the survivors: some of whom are speaking here for the first time.

The four-hour documentary series Surviving Jeffrey Epstein divulges the full extent of the international sex trafficking network devised by the reclusive billionaire to feed his sexual cravings.

In addition, it reveals how he used his connections with the rich and powerful to evade detection and prosecution.

The series provides a platform for the survivors of Epstein's systematic abuse to share their stories as we gain unparalleled insight into one of the most talked about and widespread abuse scandals in history.

With testimonies from attorneys on both sides of the case, psychologists and expert journalists offer a comprehensive view of the case of Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged global human trafficking network for the rich and powerful.

The first two parts of the series detail the survivors' stories of the mysterious billionaire who lured them, as young teenagers, to his home through an elaborate series of female recruiters they thought they could trust.

As the documentary progresses into part two, we hear how Epstein replicated his assaults at a number of his properties.

With Epstein's behaviour continuing unchecked for years, Virginia Roberts Giuffre offered explosive insight into the exploitative operation Epstein had created.

Epstein's crimes weren't just committed on the east coast - his sprawling compound in New Mexico was also the location of many assaults on young girls that were lured to his property, made possible by the vast donations he made to political figures in the state.

Episodes three and four focus on Epstein's private island and how his sex trafficking operated on a global scale, as well as the recent arrest of alleged co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell and Prince Andrew's alleged complicity.

To date, Prince Andrew has denied wrongdoing and has not been charged with any crime.
