Isidingo Hits 4000th Episode Milestone

SABC3’s most cherished local soapie series, Isidingo, will hit its 4000th episode on Wednesday, 1 October 2014!

This impressive milestone is a culmination of near countless and equally compelling moments in the years spent producing story bound tales of the Horizon Deep citizens. 

Isidingo has uncovered topical storylines to viewers since the show first premiered way back on a Tuesday, 7 July 1998.

The journey has not been without some hurdles. The set of Isidingo survived an unexpected fire last year. The show also joined the nation and the industry in mourning the loss of one of its original cast members Lesego Motsepe, who played Letti Matabane on the show.  

Recent new arrival Head Writer, Rohan Dickson, is now helping to grow the brand. The show promises that the current writing team aims to provide pertinent and locally relevant stories that everyday South Africans can relate to, while also edifying viewers in the process.
“It is an immense proud moment and a remarkable milestone which we are delighted to have reached, MD Endemol SA, Sivan Pillay says. 
“For 4000 episodes Isidingo has entrenched itself as a credible show with stories that relate to South African society by encompassing the ideal of one nation viewing. We hope to entertain fans for many years to come”
According to the statement by the show, the series' success lies, in part, in its ability to tackle stories that strike the lives of real South Africans, as it explores the diverse worlds of how the rich can affect the poor, right through to how their lives can entwine. Horizon Deep has been full of amazing moments which have made the fictional city a household name.

“Isidingo has built a challenging track record that makes all parties involved in the production proud and inspired to achieve more,” Aisha Mohamed, Head of Bouquet: SABC3 confirms. 
“This is an outstanding landmark for the show and we are very proud, and pleased to be associated with one of the country’s top daily dramas. We would like to express thanks to the brilliant cast of Isidingo and the production team from Endemol for generating captivating storylines that our viewers can look forward to weekdays at 7pm.”
Executive Producer Pumla Hopa, who has been with the show since its first episode, added; 
“We would like to thank SABC 3 and our viewers for their continued support. We are very proud to have reached this milestone. We love being part of the South African TV landscape and being able to have a positive influence in people’s lives on a daily basis. The journey has been exciting and we look forward to continue participating as a major contributor in the narrative of South Africa as we continue growing as a country”.
Catch Isidingo on SABC3 every weekday at 19h00.
