Get ready for Loli

Loli’s Luck (A suerte de Loli) will premiere on Telemundo Africa (DStv Channel 118) on Monday September 13 at 22:00. 

Loli’s Luck tells the story of Loli Aguilar, a single and successful executive producer at Global Radio Group, the top broadcast network on the US West Coast. As Loli’s career continues to rise, her love life takes the back seat while she enjoys her freedom and a commitment-free life. She’s a woman who has never found true love and has made the decision to never have children of her own.

However, her life turns upside down when her best friend Mariana suddenly passes away leaving everything to Loli, including her two children.
The news takes everyone by surprise, especially Loli, who feels she is the least qualified person to raise her best friend’s kids. Loli will have to face her new reality and learn, through the struggles, that the most important thing isn’t her career as she discovers that the true meaning of life’s success is family and love.

Top comedy to watch

New M-Net sitcom Hacks has 15 Emmy nominations under its belt.

Starring Jean Smart of Designing Women fame, it is a biting, hilarious and insightful comedy laced with genuine pathos, fuelled by its smart writing about generational warfare and compassion between two women who thought they had nothing in common.

Hacks is one of the strongest debuts of 2021, and it’s already been renewed for a second season.

Smart plays Deborah Vance, a legendary comic with a Las Vegas residency and lucrative merchandise deals. The owner of the Vegas hotel is threatening to cut her nights, in favour of younger acts who can attract a different audience. Deborah isn’t relevant enough.

At the same time, Ava is a 25-year-old out-of-work comedy writer who’s been cast out of her industry for an insensitive tweet, putting an end to her career barely before she’s started.

She reluctantly agrees to a meeting with Deborah, set up by their mutual agent without Deborah’s knowledge. Will they get along?

New Season: Nancy Drew

Nancy Drew is a brilliant teenaged detective whose sense of self comes from solving mysteries in her hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine - until her mother’s untimely death derails Nancy’s college plans.
This detective series starts on M-Net at 20:30 on Saturday July 31.

Devastated by her mother’s passing, Nancy swears off crime-solving while crossing off the days until she can re-apply to college. But when a socialite is murdered, Nancy finds herself a prime suspect in the crime, along with a group of other teens present at the scene: Nancy’s nemesis from high school, George Fan; a rich girl with a mysterious past, Bess Marvin; Nancy’s secret boyfriend, Ned “Nick” Nickerson, and amiable burnout Ace.

The five of them must team up to clear their own names - encountering emotional entanglements and even more mysteries along the way. Nancy’s reawakening brings her into conflict with her widowed father, Carson Drew.
And, when a supernatural presence begins to haunt Nancy’s investigation, she discovers that the current crime has an astonishing connection to the unsolved murder of a local girl.

Whether the ghost is here to help or hinder Nancy remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure: Nancy’s going to have to unravel the clues from both the living and the dead to solve the crimes.
