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
