e.tv adds new political TV drama, new religious drama to its local production slate; both shows will start broadcasting later this year.
e.tv's outgoing executive in charge of channels, Monde Twala, in his last public speech before jumping to Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa) as the new vice president for BET, made the announcement on Monday night at e.tv's soap show event in Sandton.
Days later, invited media who attended has so far failed to report the news or about the upcoming developments regarding e.tv's soaps Rhythm City and Scandal! while e.tv didn't issue or respond to media requests for transcripts.
Monde Twala congratulated both of e.tv's longrunning soaps with their growth and longevity.
Monde Twala played an integral role in the creation of especially Rhythm City and getting it on air (as well as recently Ashes to Ashes and Gold Diggers).
"I'm very proud of the growth of Scandal! and Rhythm City. Can you believe that Rhythm City is eight years old this year? While Scandal! is 11 years old? It's a huge achievement for us as a channel," said Monde Twala.
"There's a lot to come. There's a religious drama and a political drama, but I won't say much about them for now," said Monde Twala.
