"Hank" and "Satisfaction" among highlights for the rest of July 2010.07.21

M-Net Series, channel 110 on DStv, broadcasts favourite short format programmes and often boasts exclusive material that has never been seen on South African television before.

Currently running on Thursdays at 20h00 is Hank, the comedy series starring Kelsey Grammer (Frasier, Cheers) as Hank Pryor, a former CEO who suddenly finds himself out of work, almost out of money and around a wife and kids for whom he has never made much time. Hank moves the family back to River Bend, Virginia, the small-town site of his first business success. A self-made man, Hank is used to being the boss, but now that he has lost almost everything, is he up for the even bigger challenge of being a husband and father? While his wife Tilly regrets having to leave the glitz of New York City, Hank is eager to re-launch his career in the place where it all began. Unfortunately, this also means that Hank has to spend time with his brother-in-law, Grady Funk, who delights in Hank's recent misfortunes.

The second season of Satisfaction returns to M-Net Series, starting July 21 at 21h30. This edgy Australian drama series explores the relationship between girls working at a high-end brothel and their clients. While the girls reel from the news of Nick's death in the premiere episode of the new season, battle lines are drawn between Nat and Mel over the ownership of 232. Nat retreats into the safety of her fetish, and Mel, having considered giving up the game, reaches for her little black book and gets together with a psychologist client - but to his surprise she turns the tables. After losing the baby, Heather is attempting to get on with her own life and moves into a new house with Lauren.
