The TS Madison Experience

Social media star and funny lady TS Madison (a returning guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race) has a new goal: to be the first-ever Black trans woman to host her own mainstream talk show – well, if she can beat Laverne Cox past the post. This funny, authentic reality series takes us inside TS Madison’s home, family and offices, and her friendship with Tiffany “New York” Pollard. Fans in the US have fallen head-over-heels for TS’s loving, supportive mom, Ms Mary, and with the positive representation of trans life that TS and her friends show.

Watch The TS Madison Experience Season 1 from Friday, 5 November at 17:00 on 1Magic (DStv Channel 103)

Salvage Kings

Love home reno shows but want to weep at the waste? The team at Priestly Demolition is on the case on an even larger scale. Head of Salvage Ted Finch, his right-hand man Justin Fortin, and rookie Julien Savage search through old business, bars and factory buildings scheduled for demolition for anything of value (from toys to tools and vintage signs) so that they can save it before company president Ryan Priestly and his demolition crew send that first wrecking ball flying. This season we’ll find out what they saved from the 82-year-old Port Colborne Marine Tower (seen in The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4, episode 3).
