SABC 2 has announced its upcoming drama series, Die Sentrum, which will be premiering in April 2021 and sharing the weeknight primetime slot with long-running telenovela, 7de Laan.
SABC 2 announced on its website on Monday, 22 February 2021, that the new telenovela, Die Sentrum, is set to premiere on Thursday, 8 April 2021, and will air every Thursday and Friday at 18:00. According to the website, Die Sentrum tells the story of eight counsellors from completely different backgrounds, who work together in a helpline call centre. As they seek to help callers with their personal issues, they attempt to balance their own challenges which they have struggled to overcome.
The series will deal with topics such as alcoholism, domestic violence, and love and abuse, as both the callers and the counsellors add a different layer of emotion to each storyline. Director, Mandilakhe Yengo, stated, “Die Sentrum is a very unique concept as we haven’t had a dramatic series set in a crisis call centre before. The counsellors are there not to judge their callers, but to assist them in whichever circumstance they find themselves in, this ranges from callers just needing someone to talk to, to life-threatening situations.”
