SABC2 announces the broadcast of the repeat of the drama series Die Uwe Pottie Potgieter every Monday at 7pm, starting 7th August 2017.

Summary:- The series follows the adventures of Pottie trying to find a job. His mother-in-law has moved in with him trying to help his son, 17 year old Sebastiaan through matric. Pottie’s friend Tiny also lost his job and has not told his wife four months after being fired and goes to Pottie’s house every day to prevent his wife from being suspicious. Sebastiaan is very bad in maths and his association with the new girlfriend he met at extra maths classes, 18 year old Tascha only makes matters worse.

Pottie and his mother-in-law don’t get along at all. She resents the fact that he is jobless and blames him that her daughter is in Saudi Arabia. The series is about all the ordinary Afrikaans family trying to cope with ordinary issues, portrayed in the most hilarious way.
