Winner of Masterchef Australia 2014, Brent Owens.

Brent Owens Unwrapped... South Africa will be shown locally on a soon-to-be announced DStv channel.

Brent Owens, the popular winner of MasterChef Australia 2014 and author of the bestselling cookbook Dig In, is due to travel to South Africa in the next fortnight to start filming a new food and adventure television series titled Brent Owens Unwrapped… South Africa.

Created and produced by content creation company Oxyg3n Media, the series will capitalise on Owens' love for travel, food and adrenalin during his trip through South Africa. Owens will explore local cuisine, learning from those that have crafted these home-grown dishes; digging into aspects of South African history; uncovering fascinating personal stories from locals he meets along the way; and delving into little known areas of the country to expose them to an international audience. And because Brent loves adventure, it wouldn’t right if he didn’t experience some of South Africa’s adrenalin sports.

Says Oxyg3n Media's CEO and executive producer Rebecca Fuller-Campbell: "We are very excited to be working with the talented Brent Owens and we believe the show's unique concept will make it a fascinating, informative and entertaining series for local and international viewers."

Says Owens: "I'm absolutely pumped to get back over to South Africa and start filming the series. The country has so much to offer and it's so exciting that I get the opportunity to show it off to the world. A hidden gem with endless culinary adventures."

Brent Owens Unwrapped... South Africa will be shown locally on a soon-to-be announced DStv channel with worldwide distribution handled by Beyond Distribution.
