The show will be plotted around how an authentic local family deals with the hustling and bustling life in the 21st century. Also, the family will be portrayed within an African context.

Speaking on the upcoming show, Dineo, revealed that filming with her family has been an amazing experience for her. The TV/radio personality who has now transitioned from on-screen talent to executive producer is overly excited that Mzansi will get to share their story.

“It’s been an incredible experience working on this production with my amazing, dynamic family. The Ranakas wear their hearts on their sleeves,” she said.

“We are a vibrant family made of strong characters, and I believe that the audience will form personal relationships with each character. The truest, most genuine family dynamics will be seen: from tests of loyalty, sibling rivalry, love and all its challenges, to joy and sorrow alike, the production is nothing short of incredible. I’m excited for the country to share in on our story.”

The Rankas was inspired by the highly successful VUZU AMP reality show Dineo’s Diary. The show gave viewers a glimpse of this very animated household. Dineo Ranaka’s parents, brother and sisters have all made an appearance on her Vuzu reality show.

Watch out for The Ranakas from Thursday, 12 January at 8PM on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161). With what we know of the Ranaka’s family, we can comfortably say that this is going to be so much fun.
