Shooting is finally underway in Cape Town on Tali’s Baby Diary, the long-awaited sequel to the first ever Showmax Original. Talibabes is due - yes, that kind of due - in March 2021.

Tali’s Wedding Diary set a new record for first-day views on Showmax when it launched in December 2017.

The hilarious mockumentary stars Julia Anastasopoulos as Tali Shapiro, a self-obsessed Joburg princess who's just moved to Cape Town and is filming the build-up to her wedding to her property-agent fiance Darren (Anton Taylor).

In Tali's Baby Diary, an unexpected pregnancy forces Tali into a desperate pivot from Insta-influencer to wholesome momfluencer, as Darren (Anton Taylor) and Rael (Comics’ Choice nominee Glen Biderman-Pam, the genius behind the viral My Octopus Teacher spoof My Kreepy Teacher) 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.
