Durban Lifeguards Heat Up The Screen | New Docu-series About DBN Lifeguards

THE Travel Channel is about to make lifeguards from eThekwini heroes, both in their deeds as lifesaving soldiers of the beaches and real life Baywatch-esque hotties. TV documentary series about the Durban’s lifesavers will be broadcast around the world. 

The 10-episode series, which was to be called Heatwave, is now going to be called Durban Beach Rescue, was shot at the height of the hectic December festive season when Durban’s heroic lifeguards dealt with massive crowds, dramatic rescues, a suspected shark attack, a mass rescue of 150 bathers at the notorious Wedge Beach, baptism rituals in the middle of the ocean and a 3-year-old boy lost in a crowd of 40 000 holidaymakers.

The series was shot on locations at all the main Durban beaches from uShaka to the Country Club, as well as Umhlanga.

Industry power-player and Durban-born, Bronwyn Berry, is the executive producer of the series. The series is made up of 10 {24 minutes each} episode and will be broadcast on the Travel Channel and go out in the UK, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.

The premiere date is yet to be confirmed but I will keep you posted...
