Urban Brew Studios producing I Love Violetta; the companion teen lifestyle show will start on 25 September on Disney Channel on DStv.


The Walt Disney Company South Africa commissioned Urban Brew Studios to produce I Love Violetta, the weekly companion series which will be broadcast in conjunction with the third season of the Disney Channel's (DStv 303) telenovela Violetta from September.

In I Love Violetta three local presenters will be talking about a wide range of topics related to Violetta.

"For a South African production company to be awarded international work is a great achievement in itself, but for that work to come from undoubtedly the biggest family brand in the world, that is an incredible milestone," says Urban Brew's Freddy Louw, executive producer of I Love Violetta.

"We're so proud that the production house's journey of 25 years in television production has finally put us on the road with Disney."

"Urban Brew Studios have experience working with broadcasters and producing a vast range of programming in different formats," says Deirdre King, the head of marketing for Walt Disney Company Africa.

"They bring all that local production knowledge, creative and technical expertise and a positive energy to their productions."

"The show is a great example of the many local activities The Walt Disney Company Africa is bringing to South African audiences."

A special preview of I Love Violetta will be broadcast on the Disney Channel on Friday, 11 September at 17:00.

The third season of Violetta will start on Monday 21 September on weekdays. I Love Violetta will start on Friday 25 September with a new episode every Friday.
