Giyani - Land of Blood SABC

The first-ever scripted Xitsonga drama series set in the community of Risinga, turned upside down when secrets of the past are revealed. This season is filled with high action, forbidden love, a string of murders and secrets that need to remain hidden AT ALL COST!

After his mother passes away, ambitious (but failed) entrepreneur Tshiamo Tselane is left to run her supermarket in Kliptown. Having had terrible luck with all of his past projects, Tshiamo becomes hellbent on making the supermarket successful enough to one day franchise both to honour his mother’s legacy and prove his worth as a business man.

Thrown into the mix, is his father, a famous ex-soccer star, Bra Pantsula who comes back after a twenty-five year absence. Bra Pantsula had only returned to his long forgotten home due to financial desperation but when he learns of his wife’s passing, he feels a calling to be a part of his son (and grandson’s) life again. Tshiamo makes it clear to him that he wants nothing to do with him. But when it’s revealed that his father is still a fifty percent shareholder in the supermarket, Tshiamo has no choice but to grudgingly let his father back into the family and let him be a part of the running of the supermarket.

Die Sentrum is centred around a group of eight diverse councilors who work together in a helpline call centre and seek to help callers with their personal issues however each one of the councilors has their own challenges to overcome. The series explores compelling social realism scenarios against the present times in South Africa.  The callers’' stories provide another layer of social reality in each episode.  The office, politics, foibles, friendships, fights and frissons create texture and humour in the story strands. Alcoholism, domestic violence, a desperate search for love, and secret lifestyles are some of the subjects the counsellors need to deal with – not only over the telephone, but in their personal lives as well.

Jane the Virgin is an American telenovela. When Jane Villanueva was a young girl, her grandmother, Alba, convinced her of two things: telenovelas are the highest form of entertainment, and women must protect their virginity at all costs. Now age 23, Jane is a driven young woman studying to become a teacher, nursing a dream to be a writer, and supporting herself with a job at a hot new Miami hotel. All the years of watching telenovelas with the two women who raised her – her sexy, young-at-heart mother, Xiomara (known as “Xo”), and her still-devout grandmother, Alba – have given Jane a slightly unrealistic view of romance. Although she is determined not to make the same mistake Xo made – becoming an unwed mother at 16 – Jane could not be closer to the two wonderful women who have shaped her life. They are very different people – Xo lives her life as a perpetual teenager, performing at local clubs and always looking for a new man, while Alba makes religion and prayer the focus of her life – but both women consider Jane the center of their universe and love the grounded, compassionate and ambitious young woman she has become. Despite the conflicting influences of her mother and grandmother, Jane has managed to find a wonderful fiancé: a handsome, hard-working detective named Michael, who loves her enough to accept her detailed timeline for their future together and even her insistence on “saving herself” until they’re married. All of Jane’s meticulous life plans are turned upside down, however, when she sees her doctor for a routine check-up and is accidentally artificially inseminated with a specimen meant for the patient in the next room. Unbeknownst to her, the specimen belongs to Rafael, a reformed playboy and cancer survivor, who is not only the new owner of the hotel where Jane works but also a former summer crush of hers. The series stars Gina Rodriguez (“Filly Brown,” “The Bold and the Beautiful”) as Jane, Justin Baldoni (“Single Ladies,” “The Bold and the Beautiful”) as Rafael, Brett Dier (“Ravenswood”) as Michael, Andrea Navedo (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Golden Boy”) as Xiomara, Yael Grobglas (“Reign”) as Petra, Ivonne Coll (“Switched at Birth,” “The Bold and the Beautiful”) as Alba and Jaime Camil (“Devious Maids,” “Que Pobres Tan Ricos”) as Rogelio.
