Comedy-drama Hacks made quite a stir at the 73rd Primetime Emmys.

For its first season, it got a total of 15 nominations, taking home three awards for Best Acting, Best Writing and Best Directing in a comedy series.

The series centres on Deborah Vance (Jean Smart), a Las Vegas stand-up comedy diva who needs to maintain relevance. She reluctantly teams up with Ava (Hannah Einbinder), a Millennial comedy writer who cannot find work due to being "cancelled" over an insensitive tweet. The two team up to freshen Vance's material and learn to respect each other's differences.

In the video above, we look at the reasons why you should add this show to your watchlist.

Hacks is available on DStv Now.
