Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Channel: Prime Video
TX Time: 00h01
Genre: Action, Comedy-Drama, Thriller

Mr. & Mrs. Smith

The series, a reimagining of the 2005 film, stars Donald Glover as John Smith and Maya Erskine as Jane Smith.

In this version of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, two lonely strangers land jobs working for a mysterious spy agency that offers them a glorious life of espionage, wealth, world travels and a dream brownstone in Manhattan.

The catch? New identities in an arranged marriage as Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Smith.

Now hitched, John and Jane navigate a high-risk mission every week while also facing a new relationship milestone.

Their complex cover story becomes even more complicated when they catch real feelings for each other.

What's riskier: espionage or marriage?


Channel: Me (DStv 115)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Drama


Moonshine is an epic tale of lust, legacy and lobster, set against the backdrop of financial hardship, small town intrigue and a long-buried secret that threatens to annihilate the Finley-Cullens once and for all.

Corrine Koslo and Peter MacNeill play Bea and Ken Finley-Cullen, the heads of the family and owners of The Moonshine, their own little slice of paradise that is starting to become a nightmare — if only they could decide which of their flawed brood is fit to take over the business.

Jennifer Finnigan plays Lidia, an architect and the eldest sibling who wants to redevelop and exploit the valuable coastal property, giving her an opportunity to shine and overcome past disappointments.

Anastasia Phillips plays her often-overlooked younger sister Rhian, who sees The Moonshine as her own chance to shine.

Other family members include Lidia's sister Nora, the sexy local DJ, who knows all the family secrets; Sammy, Lidia's musically-gifted adopted brother who holds secrets of his own; and aging party boy Ryan, Rhian's twin, who is running his own (illegal) business out of the resort.

In the series premiere, "Standby Out of Newark": When Lidia, the eldest of the dysfunctional Finley-Cullen clan, returns home from New York for her aunt's funeral, her whole life is torn down in a weekend.

Her marriage implodes, her kids turn on her, and a surprise inheritance kicks off a family feud with her rival sister.

There's only one rational move - leave. Instead, Lidia doubles down.

She's going to stay and she's going to make her new life work (or die trying).

Seduced to Slay

TX Time: 21h00
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series, Docu-Drama

Seduced to Slay

It takes a certain kind of person to convince another to commit murder.

In many cases, it's a seducer — someone who can manipulate the person who loves them into killing for them.

They'll offer love, sex, money, or just plain lie to get what they want.

When a couple commits murder, police need to know just who manipulated who.

In the series premiere, "A Shot in the Dark": Thirty miles outside of Dallas, in Royse City, Texas, Fire Captain Robert Poynter and his young wife Chacey enjoy an idyllic small-town life.

But that's shattered when a dramatic physical transformation leads to infidelity and a dead body.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Star Crossed Killers": When single mother Linda Damm goes missing in Lafayette, Colorado, police get a tip from an anonymous caller telling them where to find her body and who her unexpected killer is.

Is there more to the case than meets the eye?

Other episodes include:

Boardwalk Pied Piper

Kosta and Lisa Fotopoulos are a Daytona Beach power couple in 1989. Kosta owns a bar and hires sultry Deidre Hunt as a waitress.

Soon, a torrid affair, a deadly home invasion and a videotaped murder all result from a tailspin of greed and seduction.

Thrill Kill

A burned-out car with a body in the trunk and a hidden torture chamber rock the town of Speedway, Indiana.

When a similar murder happens in Texas, detectives fear their suspects have crossed state lines and will strike again if they're not stopped.

The Good Girl

When recently widowed Janie Ballard is found brutally murdered in her Little Rock home, police suspect it's a home invasion gone wrong.

But when detectives learn that Janie's husband left her with a sizeable estate, their list of suspects turns personal.

My Brother's Keeper

In the Atlanta suburb of Buford, George and Tia Young raise their three sons together.

When his childhood friend Tim Lee moves to town, George offers to let him stay with the family.

Soon, a sinister seduction occurs, leading to a cold-blooded murder.

Murder on My Bingo Card

In the dead of night, officers respond to a blazing housefire in the small town of Alpena, Michigan.

When firefighters extinguish the flames and find a body with stab wounds, the fire scene investigation turns into a murder investigation.

Three-Ring Murder

After a whirlwind romance at the University of Kentucky, Michael and Elizabeth marry within a year of meeting.

But their forever is cut short when Michael's body turns up on an early February morning at the local golf course.

Channel: M-Net (DStv 101)
TX Time: 22h00
Genre: Comedy-Drama, Comedy

Barry 3

Barry stars Bill Hader as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest.

Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor.

Barry follows his "mark" into an acting class and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the LA theatre scene.

He wants to start a new life as an actor, but his criminal past won't let him walk away — can he find a way to balance both worlds?

In the Season 3 premiere, "forgiving jeff": Barry searches the dark web for jobs and Sally, now the creator and star of her own show, begins to feel the pressures of success.

Also, Noho Hank braves his first big test in interrogation and Gene ruminates over Fuches' crushing reveal.

Heels 2

Channel: Me (DStv 115)
TX Time: 22h00
Genre: Drama

Heels 2

Heels is a story about the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of small-town pro wrestling.

Set in a close-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals, Jack Spade (Stephen Amell) and Ace Spade (Alexander Ludwig), are at war over their late father's legacy while working to find their identity and their individual versions of success.

"Heel" is a common wrestling term used to describe the antagonist or villain in the ring, however, the line between hero and heel is much less clear for this sibling rivalry outside of the ring.

Season 2 begins after a spectacular showing at the South Georgia State Fair, and the Duffy Wrestling League's popularity is suddenly on the upswing.

Hoping to seize the opportunity, Jack and his cohorts prepare for a possible business deal with a new streaming service that may propel them onto a national stage.

But the past and its tragedies threaten to upset everything when Ace leaves Duffy and the Dome in his rearview, meanwhile rival promotion Florida Wrestling Dystopia's vengeful frontman Gully comes calling.
