DStv Compact’s Lavish November
Imboni Yama Tekisi
From The Wife, to Isibaya, we’re fascinated by the drama inside South Africa’s taxi industries. This reality series dares to climb into the front seat for the truth, as we meet real-life taxi bosses such as widow and TikTok sensation, and KZN-based twin brothers. We’ll meet their families and their drivers. We’ll also go inside their businesses to get to grips with some radically different approaches to the business, their rivals, and their efforts to adapt to the future. They’ll also reveal the deadly dangerous rules they must live by to avoid setting off a taxi war.
Watch Imboni Yama Tekisi Season 1 from Wednesday, 2 November at 20:00 on Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161).
Trophy wife Zozi and her two closest friends – posh, politically connected Katlego and the fabulous Nomzamo – are forced even closer when they have to lie to protect one another, stay out of jail, and keep their claws on all those marvellous millions. From the outside they might seem perfect, but Zozi’s little sister, detective Mpumi, can already see the cracks... When Zozi misinterprets a situation, a body hits the floor, and it looks like the season’s hottest accessory is an accessory to murder.
Watch Lavish Season 1 from Friday, 4 November at 20:00 on Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161).
Deadliest Mums & Dads
The eight-episode British true-crime series is narrated by Milo Twomey and looks at why these parents kill. Cases include the murder of teenager Shafilea Ahmed, Lee Ford’s murder of his wife Lesley and all four of his stepchildren, and the murder of eight-year-old Ayesha Ali. We also find out who decapitated three-year-old Erica Green, what happened to little Bianca Jones, and why a wife murdered her husband and two sons.
Watch Deadliest Mums & Dads Season 1 from Tuesday, 15 November at 21:00 on ID (DStv Channel 171).
Bob Hearts Abishola
One of TV’s most romantic comedy series is back. Bob is shopping for an engagement ring but Abishola has an even tougher mission ahead of her if she wants to divorce her husband. She’ll also look towards getting blessings on her union with Bob – one of the major storylines for the season.
Watch Bob Hearts Abishola Season 2 from Tuesday, 15 November at 21:00 on Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122).
After a massive investment in renovation, London’s Savoy Hotel opens its doors again for the first time since the pandemic began. The Royal Suite has been designed by Gucci, Gordon Ramsay is opening his new restaurant, and all the brides, who had to put off their posh weddings are stampeding. The new owner is jetting in and an inspector is on the way to determine whether the Savoy will keep its five-star status. Needless to say, staff terror levels are at an all-time high.
Watch The Savoy Season 2 from Thursday, 4 November at 20:00 on BBC Lifestyle (DStv Channel 174).
