The Road Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) Monday, 9.30pm Set against the backdrop of iconic Sophiatown, this love story is intertwined with historical South African events.
The Road is about a singer, Stella, and a talented writer, Themba, who are starcrossed lovers longing to be together. Only destiny will tell if they end up in each other’s arms.
Their story is told against the backdrop of bubbling tensions, a mysterious murder and unresolved passions. “The Road follows the resounding success of Isibaya. We hope our viewers will enjoy the authentic, sweeping love story set in an era famous for its glamour and music,” says M-Net’s Nkateko Mabaso. We are intrigued that the rich terrain of Sophiatown is being used as the inspiration for TV.
We hope it’s good. – Grethe Koen
