The New Year episode of Globacom-sponsored TV drama series, Professor Johnbull, billed to go on air on Tuesday, is focusing on the near extinct culture of impeccable table mannerism among the young generation.

The episode entitled: Kitchen On the Run beams the light on the dilemma of average modern day working class women who have to juggle the responsibilities of home-making with career building.

Kitchen on the Run will examine the coping strategies of women who do not have enough time to execute all their traditional roles of African wives due to the demands of their jobs.

The episode also looks at how husbands are coping with the rising cases of wives who do not have enough time to cook for their families.

According to the show sponsor, Globacom, Kitchen on the Run" will help to raise awareness about the fundamental issue that potentially can destabilize a family unit.

The episode is not lacking in hilarious scenes, but amidst the humour, salient lessons are to be learnt by viewers who can then make necessary adjustments in their own personal lives for the benefit of their loved ones and ultimately the society, Globacom said in the statement.

Viewers can look forward to seeing the talented singer, Ego, playing the role of a busy wife in the episode.

She has newly secured a job that has changed her status and she must manage the responsibilities of her new status with her traditional role as a wife.

How will she interpret this role? What are the coping strategies she will deploy to manage her now expanded duties to hubby and to employers? Are women the only ones who should cook? How does Abednego (Martins Nebo), who does not have a wife, cope with culinary duties?

Viewers can also look forward to seeing Ufoma (Bimbo Akintola) trying her charms and luck on his crush, Professor Johnbull (Kanayo O. Kanayo). What trick is she going to use? Will she be successful?

Answers will be provided to these questions on Kitchen on the Run airing this Tuesday at 8.30 p.m. on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes airwaves.

The episode will be repeated on Friday on the same channels and at the same time.
