Tali’s Baby Diary
Tali’s back! In the hilarious mockumentary Tali’s Baby Diary, an unexpected pregnancy forces Tali (Julia Anastasopoulos, aka SuzelleDIY) into a desperate pivot from Insta-influencer to wholesome momfluencer, as Darren (Anton Taylor) and Rael (Glen Biderman-Pam) navigate the choppy waters of the Cape Town property game. But as the nine-month clock ticks down, Tali and the boys are forced to face the bigger questions about life, love and parenthood.
Julia and her co-creator and hubby Ari Kruger set a (then) record for the most first-day views on Showmax with Tali’s Wedding Diary, the first ever Showmax Original, which went on to become the most awarded comedy at the 2019 SAFTAs, taking home five prizes, including Best Comedy.
All our favourites are back in the new season, including Lara Toselli (Chin Up, Swaaibraai); two-time Fleur du Cap winner Guy De Lancey (Troy: Fall Of A City); and Fleur du Cap Best Actress winner and SAFTA nominee Kate Normington (Those Who Can’t).
New faces include Coconut Kelz and Danny K; stand-up comics Kate Pinchuck, Kurt Schoonraad and Tracy Klass; and SAFTA winners Deon Lotz (Skoonheid, Trackers), Schalk Bezuidenhout (Kanarie, Hotel) and Siv Ngesi (Knuckle City and Showmax Originals DAM and the upcoming Blood Psalms), and rising star Shamilla Miller (The Girl From St Agnes, Blood & Water), along with some real South African momfluencers and Insta personalities.
All ten episodes are now streaming exclusively on Showmax.
