Fox Africa Highlights: June 2020

GREY’S ANATOMY S15 (25 x 60)

Tuesdays at 20:45 from 9 June (ends 24 November)
Repeats on Saturdays at 20:15 and Sundays at 19:10

Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital — the toughest surgical residency program west of Harvard was a brutal training ground but now the former students have interns of their own to mentor. The doctors deal with life-or-death consequences on a daily basis — it’s in one another that they find comfort and friendship.

KILLING EVE S1

Wednesdays at 20:45 from 6 May (ends 24 June)
Season 1 finale 24 June.

An award-winning spy thriller starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, Killing Eve centres on two women; Eve is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.

THE SIMPSONS S21 – S23

Monday – Friday at 16:35 [Double bills] (ends 5 June)

An animated comedy series about a blue collar family – The Simpsons, who live in Springfield. Homer, the lovable father, stumbles apathetically through his family life and work at the local nuclear power plant. Marge, the overbearing, but responsible mother, Bart, the fourth grade underachiever and nemesis to Springfield elementary’s principal, Lisa, the brainy and responsible eight-year-old, and Maggie, the oft-forgotten baby, make up the family.

THE RESIDENT S3

Tuesdays at 20:45. From 21 January (Ends 2 June)
Catch up: Sunday 7 June, from 15:45. Episodes 16 – 20

In season 3, Red Rock Mountain Medical has taken over, inserting its own doctors – including new neurosurgeon Dr Barrett Cain (Morris Chestnut – Rosewood) – and nurses into the well-oiled machine that was once Chastain Memorial Hospital, and causing the doctors to fight harder than ever against the corrupting influence of money in healthcare. The hospital is being run like a profit-hungry corporation – reaping huge financial gains, while risking the lives of its patients.
