His manager, Mannie, who is also his brother, played by Mortimer Williams, knows that Ben’s crazy mind is cash in their pockets. The problem is, Ben is having such fun being a thirty-year-old kid. His son, Zach, loves it when his dad plays with him, but sometimes he would also like him to be a father.
Kim Cloete plays the role of Alice, Ben’s assistant, and helps him with his son when they’re not at each other’s throats, that is.

Episode 1 – 11 March 2019
Ben (Joey Rasdien) is a single parent and has to care for his son Zach. His brother Mannie (Mortimer Williams), brings Alice (Kim Cloete) into the household to help organize Ben’s chaotic life. It’s a big cock up that leads to dislike at first sight between Ben and Alice. Alice and Ben want to be together but their relationship never actually happen. Zach is the reason Alice stays. He loves her in spite of her strictness.
Episode 2 – 18 March 2019
Alice needs to psychoanalyze Ben and Mannie for a mini-thesis assignment she has to hand in at UNISA. They agree to do it, but Alice cleverly plays them against each other to get them compete. Neither wants the other to do it alone, afraid of what they might say about each other. Alice’s interest is purely academic, but Ben and Mannie use the points she makes as sticks to beat each other and open old wounds.
