TV weekly must watch

We’ve rounded up three great shows you should keep an eye out for this week. Start with a local crime drama that follows an enterprising furniture tycoon who uses his diamond smuggling operation to save a family member.

Then watch a fantasy drama that takes place at a luxury resort where fantasies requested by guests are fulfilled. Or opt for a horror-tinged drama that revolves around a group of disparate teen girls who find themselves tormented by an unknown assailant. 

Enemies and allies clash as chaos ensues amongst the star-studded South African cast of Ludik. The explosive six-episode series follows the story of Daan Ludik, portrayed by South African and Hollywood icon Arnold Vosloo as he tries to drag his empire out of a scandalous mess. Guns are fired, diamonds are stolen, and relationships are tested as Daan Ludik’s whole world is under fire in Netflix’s first Afrikaans series. Catch Ludik now on Netflix. 

Fantasy Island – Season 1

Roselyn Sanchez plays Elena Roarke, the latest owner of a remarkable resort, as the modern-day reboot of Fantasy Island continues. This month, a woman needs help choosing who to marry, and three old friends celebrate their 50th birthdays, but their fantasies reveal cracks in the friendship. A bookworm goes back in time to meet her favourite author, a survivalist discovers that the ultimate challenge is something he hasn’t trained for, and a businesswoman’s fantasy of a perfect Christmas ends up testing Elena in unexpected ways. Watch Fantasy Island Season 1, Mondays at 8pm on Universal TV, DStv channel 117. 

Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in the present day, a disparate group of teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin committed by their parents two decades ago…as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars. Binge it now on Showmax.
