New local series looks at the lives of housewives

Johannesburg - There is a new local comedy drama for everyone to watch!

When her restaurateur husband, Marco Gianoppolous, is found dead under a side of lamb and dripping in gourmet olive oil, Bedfordview housewife and Mrs South Africa entrant Despina vows to keep the family businesses going – but then learns that the real family business is crime.

Set in the lavish but seedy Johannesburg east suburb of Bedfordview, Bedford Wives follows the lives of four women and a community of Bedfordview criminals who, on the surface, live pristine and perfect lives but, behind closed doors, have skeletons in their closets and secrets aplenty.


Watch Bedford Wives on SABC3 (DStv 193) from Thursday, 24 August at 19:30.
