Flag zaMade in South Africa

Shimmy Isaacs’s laugh-out-loud sitcom about a factory worker who opens a hair salon in her home is streaming on Showmax, with new episodes on Mondays.

Inspired by Worcester in the Western Cape, Mince Jou Hare follows Frieda as she quits her factory job to set up a hair salon in her home, disrupting the lives of her family, neighbours and clients in the process.  

Melissa de Vries (Sasha Daniels in Arendsvlei) stars as Frieda, with comedian Dugald Pieterse as her husband Vincent, Fleur du Cap nominee Bianca Flanders (Troukoors; Nêrens, Noord-Kaap) as her best friend Julia, and Franka Kirby in a breakthrough role as her daughter, Jody. The cast also includes SAFTA nominee Keenan Arrison (Shirley Adams; The Riviera) and African Movie Academy Award nominees Lee-Ann van Rooi (Spinners) and Euodia Samson (Arendsvlei). 

The feel-good small-town comedy is written and co-produced by award-winning comedian Shimmy Isaacs, based on the life of her mother. David Isaacs, co-creator of Joe Barber and G.I.L., director of Swartwater and Sara Se Geheim, and star of Spinners, directs. Roberta Durrant produces through Penguin Films, the company behind International Emmy nominees Stokvel and Home Affairs; classic SA comedies like the Rose d’Or nominee Madam & Eve and triple SAFTA winner G.I.L.; and long-running dramas Arendsvlei and Sara Se Geheim.

Mince Jou Hare is streaming on Showmax, with new episodes every Monday.
