It’s a bromance
Love and brotherhood collide in new drama show Bone Of My Bones.
Bone Of My Bones Season 1 Wednesdays (from 1 March) SABC2 (*192) 21:30
Four childhood friends struggle to balance romance and work in Bone Of My Bones (2017- current). The show is set and shot in the township of Mamelodi, east of Pretoria and producer Ziphozonke Majola explains that “it’s a love story from a guy’s perspective. The pals are in different stages in their love lives, but this show doesn’t offer solutions – it merely connects their issues with real life”. Bone Of My Bones follows the characters and how they deal with the pressures to fit in and their desire to also “find the one”. “Their loyalty to each other binds them. Just like women, they gossip, cry and want to feel loved,” chuckles Ziphozonke.
BAG OF BONES
Kgotso (Solomon Sebothoma) is the voice of reason in the friendship circle. He’s newly elected as the leader at his church and the series starts with him marrying his fiancée Keitumetse (Gontse Ntshepang). “But it’s a disaster from the start,” explains Solomon. “Keitu’s ex-boyfriend and babydaddy Thabiso (Batsile Ramsodi) shows up at the wedding and tries to ruin their marriage.” Karabo (Aubrey Poo, Gabriel on Isidingo, see more on p24) is Keitu’s older brother. He’s a happily married mechanic whose dreams of becoming a musician are taking shape at long last, but he quickly gets trapped in the world of fame and fortune. Neo (Kgaugelo Mosomane) is Pretoria’s most eligible bachelor and well-known soccer star. He lives a reckless life and battles his mommy issues, which is part of the reason he hasn’t settled down. Mokau (Kabelo Moalusi) is an accountant and family man. His only goal in life is to be the best dad he can to his six-year-old daughter and a devoted boyfriend to his babymama.
Kgotso and his fiancée Keitumetse are in for a shock.
