AMALIA (article first published : 2005-04-30)

M-Net is featuring the new blockbuster comedy drama series Amalia on kykNET on Thursdays at 19h30.

Amalia is an exciting new tension-filled whodunnit series written by Chris Barnard about an unsolved murder where all the inhabitants of a small town are suspects. The show is directed by Katinka Heyns, and features some of South Africa's finest actors.

This 13-episode Afrikaans series will be broadcast on M-Net with English subtitles.

The Amalia storyline is awash with intrigue, scandal and secrets which surround the death of Amalia Vos.

Amalia is a respected writer who goes to visit her oldest friend, Tina Wilsenach, in the town where she was born and where she hopes to finish off her latest manuscript. Two weeks later, she commits suicide by overdosing on sleeping tablets. The police find three photographs next to her bed - all of her husband, Piet Vos, and a young girl. In the third photograph, the two of them are lying in a double bed. Piet Vos doesn't believe that Amalia committed suicide. He maintains that the photographs are fake - and that he doesn't even know who the young girl in the photograph is. The police expert examines the photographs and she claims that they are genuine.

Piet Vos takes extended leave, and begins to investigate Amalia's death. He believes she was murdered, but nobody in the town trusts him.

Amalia features a stellar cast, including Marius Weyers, Anna-Mart van der Merwe, Marcel van Heerden, Grethe Fox and Dawid Minnaar.
