BREAKING. Dragons' Den coming to Mzansi Magic as a new local South African version of the entrepreneur idea show.

South Africa is getting its own version of Dragons' Den on Mzansi Magic (DStv 161) with production company Rapid Blue which is producing the first local television version of the format show for South Africa.

The British show seen on BBC Entertainment (DStv 120) sees various entrepreneurs who bring their quirky, offbeat and innovative ideas and then pitch it - often with resultant surprises and drama - to a group of moneyed investors known as "Dragons" - who then decide if any of them want to invest in the ideas, inventions and creations.

The British version of Dragons' Den is in its 11th series in the United Kingdom and is being shown on BBC Entertainment on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform.

The local version of Dragons' Den will start on Mzansi Magic in September and there will be 12 episodes.
