Betrayal, mistaken identity and romance lace the series picks this week

Save the date, people! The offbeat comedy, Schitt’s Creek, is rewinding and starting right at the beginning on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) this week. Boasting a massive fan base and award-winning cast (Catherine O'Hara and Dan Levy just walked away with Critic’s Choice Awards for their performances), it’s likely you know someone who cannot get enough of the show. So why not find out what the fuss is about when it premieres on Monday?

Across the world, but in the same vein in terms of flamboyance and high theatrics are the comforting telenovelas Star Life brings to soap opera fans daily. See below for the latest updates from Strange Love, Sacred Relationships and My Identity.

The Victim, praised as a “gripping, vicious thriller,” by The Guardian, is premiering on Showmax on Thursday, 1 April. The four-part Scottish series has a strong cast with Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire), James Harkness (The English Game) and John Hannah (Sliding Doors) in leading roles. Follow the case about a child killer, recently released from prison, facing the wrath of a grieving mother. But is he really the killer or is it a case of mistaken identity?

Tune in to DStv and Showmax this week for a bouquet of international shows to keep you entertained over the long weekend.

The Canadian sitcom, which set the record for the most Emmys won by a comedy series in a single season, premieres this week. Watch season one, episode one where an uber-wealthy family suddenly loses it all and must move to the only remaining asset they have – an ugly small town named, yes, Schitt’s Creek.
