M-Net launching new movie magazine show

2012-10-01 11:36
Cape Town – M-Net will be launching a brand new weekly movie magazine show called The M-Net Movies Show with Jason Greer and Noni Gasa as presenters.

The M-Net Movies Show will start on M-Net Movies Premiere (DStv channel 103) on 5 October at 20:00 and will air weekly on Fridays.

According to various insiders, The M-Net Movies Show is being produced in-house by M-Net's Magic Factory production arm.

The aim of The M-Net Movies Show will be to feature news, reviews and interviews about movies.

The show will also likely feature sit-downs with movie stars and weekly information about the newly launched M-Net Movies channel line-ups.

'Very red carpet glitz'

"It will hopefully serve as a kind of nexus and focal point to help inform viewers about all of the new M-Net movie channels on DStv, but to also go even wider than that in scope to include everything regarding films," an insider told Channel24.

The source also described the The M-Net Movies Show as "a magazine show that's very red carpet glitz and glam" and went on to state that the show is similar to Barry Ronge's Screenplay on SABC3 and M-Net's Cinemagic in the past.

Jason Greer, already known as "South Africa's Ryan Seacrest", is currently a presenter on Mzansi Magic's weekly entertainment magazine show All Access Mzansi.

Nonhlanha Gasa, better known as Noni Gasa, who previously hosted Media Matters on SABC3, will be hosting the show along with Jason. 

Another source told Channel24 that "the show won't just be about M-Net Movies but all the news about what is happening internationally, at the local cinema and box office, also MultiChoice's DStv BoxOffice and anything interesting that's movie related".
