M-Net's (DStv 101) new local drama, Inconceivable poses the question what is the price of parenting? But then it takes it one step further: Is there any force stronger than a mother's love?

The new series created, written and produced by brothers Luke and Josh Rous and Meren Reddy from the award-winning Rous House Productions, will premiere on the channel on Thursday, 3 September at 20:00.

It centres on two women who have been best friends since high school and now find themselves at the centre of a circle of friends, all women in their mid-thirties. Together, these working professionals face the challenges of demanding careers and the first years of pregnancy and child-rearing - a balancing act that requires all the superpowers they can muster.

The friends have to deal with problems such as a lingering love affair, a struggle with infertility, fierce competitiveness, even fiercer love and a truly inconceivable act that will change their world.

MEET THE CAST

Anel Alexander plays Marieke Meyer, a qualified gynaecologist with two kids who may just need a little more love and attention from their always-in-crisis-mode mommy. Marieke's best friend from high school and varsity, Rachel Bishop, played by Carine Rous, is an advocate who specialises in criminal law. In contrast to Marieke, who is not always in touch with everything that's trendy and fashionable, Rachel is your prototype A-personality. For her, it's perfection at all costs. She is nine months pregnant. And everything that entails has to be perfect too!

Refilwe Madumo is Busi Nkosi, an ambitious professional who unlike her friends doesn't have children, Nina Hastie is Natalie, who has been struggling to fall pregnant and Jay Anstey is Tamsin, the only unmarried friend in the group.

To complement the strong female cast, Inconceivable also boasts an impressive list of male actors: Langley Kirkwood, Wayne van Rooyen, Sisanda Henna, Craig Jackson and Stevan Ward.

"With such an amazing cast, well-defined but complex characters, and unique story twists, Inconceivable is bound to pack a punch," says M-Net's Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard.

"It deals head-on with social issues that we believe are important to our M-Net 101 audience and we are thrilled to present the series in the Thursday night time slot previously occupied by touching dramas such as Still Breathing and Council of Dads."
