RED CARPET. South Africa's TV stars - talent and executives - all come out for M-Net and MultiChoice's Galaxy of Stars celebration event.

South Africa's television stars  -both on-screen talent as well as the executives responsible for making the magic happen - walked the red carpet on Saturday evening at Gallagher Estate at MultiChoice and M-Net's Galaxy of the Stars celebration event.

Whilst not all of the extremely high-profile and notable TV talent and executives from M-Net, M-Net channels' shows and M-Net executives and MultiChoice executives, walked the red carpet but rather went directly to the cocktail area, TV with Thinus managed to lure all who were asked to the red carpet for a photo and they all happily obliged.

The Galaxy of Stars event which celebrated M-Net and MultiChoice's massive contribution to local TV content and local television production in South Africa saw a constellation of star talent and executives come out for the exclusive and premium, invite-only black-tie gala sit down-dinner.

The Galaxy of Stars celebration event looked back at the 27 years of existence of M-Net, as well as towards the future and what M-Net and MultiChoice are doing to invest in the next generation of TV talent in South Africa's television production sector.
