Channel: kykNET (DStv 144)
TX Time: 18h30
Genre: Telenovela, Afrikaans

Diepe Waters

Telenovela which takes place in and around a competitive swimming club, Die Swartmarlyne (the Black Marlins), owned by Gys Swarts.

The Swartmarlyne swimming club is a family business in which both Gys' sons, Rossouw and Jacques, are involved.

To increase the tension, Gys' grandchildren, Karla and Johan, also swim for the Swartmarlyne's swimming team.

Karla is a young teenager struggling with the daily pressure of being a champion.

It's not without merit either, since her mother, Sanet, believes she can win a scholarship overseas and never expects anything less than perfection from Karla.

Johan, on the other hand, yearns for his Grandpa Gys's approval, but is just never as good as Karla.

Rossouw and Sanet seem like a happy couple on the surface, but when their past walks through the door, their lives are unexpectedly turned upside down.

Jacques, who still lives on Gys's property, is the smouldering coach for whose attention all the swimming moms and aqua aerobics aunties fight.

But at heart he is a soft teddy bear who more than one person can relate to about their daily hurdles.

It is against the background of this swimming club that we get to know several families who will do everything in their power to keep their heads above water, whilst hoping that their secrets will sink into deep waters.

However... Zelda Joubert, the owner of the beauty salon Skinvestment, cannot stand Gys.

This longtime disapproval of the man gives Zelda a new bounce in her step when she realises that she should rather keep her enemies as close to her as possible.

The fact that the apple of Zelda's eye, Meghan, is not even her own blood makes it very difficult for Pam, her daughter, to rise above Zelda's high standards.

Liewe Lettie (Dear Lettie) runs her own successful café and it's here where the characters find solace for their souls, not only in Lettie's freshly baked goods, but also on her shoulder.

Henry takes on the role of the new caretaker at the club and his adopted son, Tshepo, is a major threat to Johan and his reputation.

When Nina de Wet and her parents, Wim and Rose, form part of the Swartmarlyne swimming club, Karla's heart feels lighter.

The two quickly become bosom buddies and both finally have someone with whom they can share their heart's secrets.

In this community it is easy to feel like a fish out of water and the characters quickly realise that their dirty laundry cannot be easily washed clean with water.

Everyone stands the chance of being exposed for who they really are.

The series stars Justin Strydom, Sandi Schultz, Lea Vivier, Altus Theart, Nadia Valvekens, Werner Coetser, Liam Bosman, Danielle Swanepoel, Rika Sennett, Stiaan Bruwer, Johnny Potsanyane, Tracey-lee Oliver, Jean Henry, Reze-Tiana Wessels, Eloise Cupido, Neels van Jaarsveld, Reandi Grey, Lizz Meiring and Stephanie Baartman.

Diepe Waters is produced by Penguin Films.

Survivor 42

After 20 years, Survivor continues to evolve when 18 new players face one of the most intense versions of the game ever.

These determined players will be divided into three tribes of six and face a faster, more extreme season from the moment they step foot on the beach.

But it is not only plumbing that keeps them busy – they also work on their other dreams.

Then there is Shakira Haasbroek (Danielle Retief), the sexy pole dancer who has caught Poena's eye...

Multichoice and Dstv are full of nonsense. I don't know how many times I have enquired about the premier of season 33 of The amazing race and they kept saying that the show will air soon. The series is now on Season 34 in the US and we still haven't seen season 33. They claim that there's not enough space to air all show at once (which I get) but why repeat season 42 of survivor which we just saw a few weeks back on the channel (which aired late of course) at 16:00 instead of showing us new content. Season 14 Of NCIS LA is about to start in the US but we haven't even seen one episode of season 13. We can't be paying lots money to watch shows that are 1 to 2 years old. We loose interest and it is also hard to avoid spoilers. Lol it's really tough in Mzansi. They really need to bring back mnet edge to accommodate other shows. This is frustrating
