NEW ON TV: 'Generations' and 'Isidingo' Head to AfricaMagic Entertainment from 28 May
Just six weeks after the exciting revision of its channel line-up, pioneering continental TV brand AfricaMagic has more fantastic news for viewers. From Monday, May 28, DStv audiences tuned in to the glamorous new AfricaMagic Entertainment (channel 128) will also be able to watch two more massively popular daily series as the sensational soap operas GENERATIONS and ISIDINGO debut on the channel. The latest development is particularly significant because it means that for viewers outside of South Africa, where both series are produced, the best place to watch the freshest episodes will be AfricaMagic Entertainment!
“We are very pleased that we have been able to conclude our agreement with the SABC (South African Broadcasting Corporation) for the rights to screen these two dramatic and dynamic shows that already have a proven record of attracting audiences and maintaining high levels of viewer interest. And the fact that we will be screening the latest episodes shortly after the SABC is a great benefit to our audiences,” says M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi.
Alabi goes on to express her gratitude to audiences for their understanding and support during the recent changes to the AfricaMagic channels. “There were several changes which our audiences were very patient with and we received alot of positive feedback about the revised and new channels. We also want to thank our content suppliers for their great support and helpful suggestions; and of course, we must thank the cast and crews of all our shows who have been so enthusiastic about making AfricaMagic Entertainment a success. Overall, we’re happy with the response received to date. It’s a good sign for the future of a brand we’re deeply committed to.”
Along with the established M-Net series Tinsel, Jacob’s Cross and Changes, GENERATIONS and ISIDINGO will offer high quality African drama, beautifully filmed with storylines that are both relevant to African audiences and, in many ways, reflective of their own hopes, ambitions and desires. With stellar casts and world-class productions, both shows are already famous for delivering must-watch, jam-packed plots with intrigue, secrets, romance and more!
GENERATIONS: The backdrop of Generations is the advertising industry, with a storyline that celebrates the dreams and aspirations of Africans. As in all soaps, rivalry, treachery and blackmail between siblings, friends and foes alike make Generations one of the most forceful dramas South Africa has ever produced. Suspense, intrigue and tension are the order of the day as the plot unfolds and romance influences relationships between warring parties. Generations will be screening on AfricaMagic Entertainment from Monday to Friday at 8:30pm WAT, with episodes re-screened the following weekday at 12 noon WAT. Fans can also look out for an omnibus of the week’s episodes on Saturday afternoon.
ISIDINGO: Isidingo is a daily serial set in the mining village of Horizon Deep. The structure of the mining community from the miners to executive management reflects South African society as it is in the new millennium. The characters and storylines deal with the issues which face ordinary people in their daily lives – their loves, fears, problems, heartaches and triumphs. Isidingo will be screened on AfricaMagic Entertainment from Monday to Friday at 9pm WAT, with episodes re-screened the following weekday at 3pm WAT. Plus fans can look out for an omnibus of the week’s episodes on Sunday afternoon.
Plus TINSEL fans will be thrilled to hear that the show is resuming its daily slot at 7:30pm WAT from Monday May 28. So make sure you tune in! For more information on AfricaMagic channels and programming, log on to www.africamagic.tv.
