Colin Howard (right) has jumped ship as line producer at the SABC2 weekday soap 7de Laan to become a commissioning editor at kykNET (DStv 144), he is being replaced by Frances Maposa (left) as new line producer for the soap produced by Danie Odendaal Productions.

Colin Howard left 7de Laan as line producer after 15 years, leaving a void now filled by Frances Maposa.

Colin Howard and Danie Odendaal (middle) first worked together on M-Net's weekday soap Egoli.

"It's not often that one finds a business brain and a creative mind in a single person," says producer Danie Odendaal. "We will miss him as a stalwart in the work place and as a friend".

Frances Maposa joined Danie Odendaal Productions in August 2008 as an accountant and became financial manager in July 2012.

"Frances is an intelligent, highly efficient and anchored woman. Her excellent people skills and the ability to remain calm in a crisis are exactly what we need in a line producer," says Danie Odendaal. "We wish Colin Howard and Frances Maposa the very best for the future".
