Taryn And Sharon

A new comedy–drama airing Fridays at 19:30

Taryn and Sharon is an all new comedy–drama that will debut on SABC 3 from Friday, 6th October 2017 at 19:30.


Taryn and Sharon find themselves on the wrong side of thirty and desperately looking for rich, handsome and agreeable husbands to marry and make babies with. What they don’t realise is that they are joined at the hip and are practically already married to each other. This is a perfect union as they are both unbearably self-involved and completely oblivious of the world around them.

Taryn still lives at home with her doting father, Gary, who will give her anything she wants as well as with her authoritarian childhood nanny and honorary “mother”, Ma Lillian, who tends to her every need. Sharon, having been best friends with Taryn since early primary school, is the family’s other daughter who spends most of her time at the house despite having her own apartment.

Since Taryn and Sharon got their diplomas from an expensive private marketing college, they haven’t done much in terms of real, honest work. They fancy themselves web-based social entrepreneurs and spend their days cooking up flippant campaigns in order to get into exclusive events in the name of “networking” and meeting eligible bachelors.

Throughout the series, Taryn and Sharon navigate the upper crust of the Northern Johannesburg suburbs, colliding with housewives who have “made it” while they, on the other hand, lag behind but when all is said and done they will always have each other to make themselves feel better.
