South Africa's car culture that brings people together and builds communities is the subject of Karbrasse.

Petrolheads from Cape Town to the south of Johannesburg as well as other communities across the country will show their steel in spinning, drifting and high speed tricks.

They will talk about the positive impact that car culture has on their lives and show how this sub-culture has become a lifestyle in certain communities.

People featuring in the series include Bronny, who restored a Nissan S13 with his son; Mase and Elvis, who got their children involved in their hobby; and Shantone Buys, who helped build the sport and is now helping his daughters making their dreams come true.

Tariq "Chip" Moosa is an artist who prefers driving slowly in order for the art on his car can be appreciated.

It has taken him more than two decades to build up his BMW E9 (called Nkabi) and in August this year beat more than 6,000 cars at the Slammed UK competition in Birmingham.

Cape Town DJ Ready D and his wife, Malikha, feature in one of the episodes and show how their lives revolve around cars and music, as well as doing everything they can to make the sport safe.

Lucky Hank

Lucky Hank

Lucky Hank is a mid-life crisis tale set at Railton College, told in the first person by William Henry "Hank" Devereaux, Jr. (Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul), the unlikely chairman of the English department in a badly underfunded college in a working-class American town.

Hank's discontent is rooted in unresolved issues with his father, a mediocre and entitled student body, and in the fact that his department is more savagely divided than the Balkans.

Mireille Enos (The Killing) stars as Lily Devereaux, the emotionally grounded, unflappable wife of Hank and the Vice Principal of the local high school in rural Pennsylvania where they live.

As Hank's life starts to unravel, Lily begins to question the path she's on and the choices she's made.

In the series premiere, "Pilot": Hank rants against Railton College, calling it "Mediocrity's Capitol," and the administration is pressured to fire him.

Hank and Lily contemplate a future outside of Railton.

Power Book IV: Force 2

Power Book IV: Force centres on fan-favourite character Tommy Egan, played by Joseph Sikora, after he cuts ties and puts New York in his rearview mirror for good.

As Tommy leaves New York after losing Ghost, LaKeisha and the only city he's ever known, he makes a quick detour to close an old wound that's been haunting him for decades.

What was supposed to be a quick stop turned into a labyrinth of family secrets and lies Tommy thought were long buried.

One step led to another and Tommy quickly found himself in Chicago's drug game, inserting himself between the city's two biggest crews.

In a city divided by race, Tommy straddles the line, ultimately becoming the lynchpin that not only unites them - but holds the power to watch them crumble.

After cutting ties in New York, Tommy's newfound family and ruthless drug game enticed him to stay in Chicago.

The second season begins with Tommy on a mission to avenge the death of Lilliana, his former nemesis turned business partner.

With Diamond and Jenard at odds, the Flynn organisation weakened, and a new connect on the scene, Tommy is more determined than ever to take over the Chicago drug world.
