Mzansi Magic Wants Your Stories

Are you a budding storyteller? Well then Dstv's fastest growing channel is looking for your stories to share with the nation. 


Following the success of its first telenovela Inkaba, M-Net’s South African channel Mzansi Magic issued commissioning briefs for a new telenovela and bubblegum movies. 

 Mzansi Magic’s channel head, Lebone Maema, says the overwhelming response to Inkaba confirmed a viewer demand for more original, long-running home-grown stories. Mzansi Magic’s new telenovela will span over 208 half-hour episodes in prime-time. 

The channel is looking for an authentic story that world audiences can relate to – a programme that can make them laugh and cry, cheer and jeer with tales of love, betrayal, coming of age and personal relationship struggles. 

 The themes for the bubblegum movies should reflect contemporary South Africa from any region or background and can be told in English as well as indigenous languages. 

The most important prerequisite is that the film is firmly rooted within South African cultures and traditions and suitable for the entire family. 

 The closing date for submissions for both the telenovela and bubblegum movies is Thursday, 28 June. You can thank me when you are a big shot writer. Lol, good luck!
