M-Net's new local sitcom, The Coconuts, starts next week with commentary on South Africa's "rainbow nation". The show is about the Greenes, a white family whose lives are turned upside-down overnight. After ignoring the warnings of an old man not to park their caravan on the burial grounds of his ancestors, they wake up to discover that they have all turned black. The Greenes panic and decide to start a new life as the Mbulis, which leads to many bizarre situations. The Coconuts aims to poke fun at South African stereotypes.
