Two TV shows I’ve written on – “Umlilo” and “Doubt” are both being shot as we speak and go to air soon.
Umlilo: Premiering the 21st March: Mondays, eTv 21:30 – 22:30
Doubt: Premiering the 4th of April: Mondays, Mzansi Magic 20:00 – 20:30
I’ve been on a set a few times – still amazes me that all these ideas we just dreamt up in the writers’ room, hundreds of people now run around making happen. So one day we said “oh, let’s put Sanele in jail and have him try to escape” or “why don’t we create a fourth wife for Mnqobi?” Now suddenly hundreds of people – actors, set designers, producers, directors, all mobilize to make this happen – each adding their own flair.
My students from the Market Lab visited the Doubt set last week, and they got a great education. Fun, fun.
