etv is celebrating South Africa’s 20 years of democracy with the launch of a new family game show, I Love South Africa!
The Channel has concluded a deal with African Media & Productions Network (AMPN) to produce ‘I Love South Africa’. The TV show is based on the successful international Talpa format ‘I Love My Country’.
“I Love South Africa is fresh, it’s comedic, and insightful. We live in a vibrant country with positive and fun loving people. It’s a fantastic game show format that celebrates our democracy in a fun and light way that is truly South African,” says Monde Twala, etv’s Head of Channels.
Launched in 2008, the Talpa format I Love My Country is a proven success in more than 30 countries. Its 12th series is in production in The Netherlands. The show is considered to be one of the top formats in Eastern Europe, where several territories currently broadcast their second, third and even fifth series.
Harrie Linders, Co-Founder of AMPN: “I Love South Africa is a perfect fit with e.tv and South Africa. We are thrilled to produce the show in the year that South Africa celebrates its’ 20 years of democracy”.
