The cast of Telenovela

Catch Telenovela, Roots, Blood and Oil, The Art of More, all new in June on DStv

We are already half-way through the year and June comes loaded with some of the best content on DStv. Other than the battle for supremacy in the Uefa Euro 2016 on DStv Compact on SuperSport, there are more new shows for you in June.

Jane the Virgin may have given us a little sneak peek into what happens behind the scenes of telenovelas but Telenovela takes the crown by giving us the quirks, the drama, even the most self-depricating parts of telenovelas. In this humourous take, Eva Longoria is Ana Sofia Calderon, the star of the hit telenovela Las Leyes de Pasión who loves the spotlight just as much as she loves herself. She is joined by her on-screen ex-husband Jencarlos Canela (Telemundo's Forbidden Passions) as Xavier Castillo and others like Prison Break's Amaury Nolasco and Jane the Virgin's Jose Moreno Brooks. Don't miss Telenovela on Thursdays at 20:00 on VUZU AMP.

In The Family, the Warren family welcomes back its son who has been missing for 10 years with the matriarch of the family taking advantage of the situation to announce her candidacy for governor. But in thrillers, nothing is ever as it seems. Tune in on Wednesday 22 June at 20:00 on M-Net Edge (113).
