Die Kasteel (The Castle) is a brand-new Afrikaans kykNET sitcom which – as befits the best sitcoms – is filmed in front of a live studio audience. It tells the story of Eckhard and Tina-Marie de Wet, formerly well-to-do inhabitants of Waterkloof, who lose all their money in a Ponzi scheme. All they have left to their name is their luxury home and they decide to transform it into a boutique hotel in order to save the family from total ruin. Their ditsy daughter Michellay tries her best to lend a hand, and the gardener and Wilson and cleaner Cecilia must jump to it when guests start arriving – even if none of them have the faintest idea what they are doing. Die Kasteel boasts a stellar cast: Hannes Muller, Dorette Potgieter, Cintaine Schutte, Solomon Cupido and Pulane Sekepe play the central characters; and every week a host of colourful guest characters make their appearance to keep the audience in stitches. New episodes of Die Kasteel are available weekly on ShowMax.
