The paper reported that the new soapie, which will compete with SABC 1's Generations: The Legacy, is set in the funeral undertaking business of the Namanes and is filled with drama, intrigue and back-stabbing.
"It's Ashes to Ashes, not Gold-diggers [as has been previously reported]. If you know funerals, you'll know that that universe is full of intrigue and corrupt storylines. There's a lot of drama and intrigue of how a funeral parlour is run. It's ambitious and has a family legacy to be contested. We have some cast members who 'became' available," Twala told the paper.
Ashes to Ashes will begin airing on the 2nd of March at 8pm.
