New show on E!

E! Entertainment Television (124) on Wednesday 2 November announced its new, locally produced series The Search: E! Host South Africa.  Expected to launch on the channel in February 2017, the six-part series will follow eight aspiring presenters as they compete to become the first-ever host for the channel in South Africa, and next member of the E! family.

“E! Entertainment Television continues to invest into original programming and, with The Search: E! Host South Africa about to begin production, we are delighted to be showcasing local talent,”, says Colin McLeod, Managing Director, UK and Emerging Markets, NBCUniversal International Networks. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance for up-and-coming talent from across the country to pursue this unique opportunity to become a pop culture ambassador on E! in Africa.”

This new reality competition will follow the contestants as they live together in a luxurious mansion, showcasing their talent in a series of weekly challenges. Each week, one of the contestants will be eliminated by a panel of judges until only the most accomplished and tenacious contender – whose finger is firmly on the pulse of pop culture – is declared the winner. The winner will see their star-studded dreams come true, as they become the first-ever E! Host South Africa covering future events on behalf of the channel.
