Cape Town – has scheduled the channel's new soapie Imbewu: The Seed in the 21:30 timeslot and will kick off on 16 April.

Imbewu: The Seed, that will air Mondays to Fridays on, has a cast including Thembi Mtshali (MaNdlovu), Sandile Dlamini (Phakade), Mpumelelo Bhulose (Zimele) and Leleti Khumalo going from MaNzuza in SABC1s Uzalo to MaZulu.

It will be the only show of its type during the 21:30 timeslot as decided not to schedule Imbewu during the heated and strongly contested 20:00 hour. 

SABC2's Keeping Score ends on 10 April and is replaced by old rebroadcasts a week before Imbewu kicks off.

Imbewu shares a lot of similarities with SABC1's Uzalo - which is the show that Leleti Khumalo used to be in before jumping to Imbewu. Besides an on-screen role, Leleti also gets an executive producer credit. (Read more here)

Imbewu: The Seed is produced by Grapevine Productions, a joint venture between Videovision Entertainment, Word of Mouth Pictures and Luys Productions with Duma Ndlovu and Anant Singh.

It revolves around two brothers – one leading a rural life, the other one rich in the city. One can't father children and the other one is asked to impregnate his brother's wife in order to ensure the legacy and dynasty of the family name.
