SA supernatural TV series starting soon

2012-10-04 09:13
Johannesburg - A new South African television series drawing on supernatural events is set to start soon, The Times newspaper reported on Thursday.

Room 9, a 13-part-show, will premiere on SABC 1 on 8 November at 20:30 and be televised every Thursday.

The show details eerie happenings, including domestic workers being killed by tokoloshes and cases investigated by detectives with extra-sensory perception.

The show was shot in Industria, Johannesburg, earlier this year.

It is set in the New Azania police department, which solves supernatural cases other units have rejected.

Screen veteran Darrell Roodt said the series was set in the future, and that stories in the Daily Sun newspaper had inspired him to write it.

    Another series for the braindead who believe in this turd called the supernatural. Cmon peeps, there is no such thing as ghosts. BORING!!!!

      So according to you, Fringe is also for the braindead who believe in turd? It might be a show of lower quality, but compare ABC budgets to SABC. I applaud the fact that someone saw something in a paper and went through the SABC to express somme creativity.

    Another unoriginal show been copied, Can South Africans not come up with original ideas for TV shows instead of looking overseas?

      grant.logan.94 - 2012-10-04 13:37

      There are alot of US shows that are not original but you still support that?

      @nomgqibelo you are obviously not into spelling either!

      marius.j.rensburg.3 - 2012-10-04 18:06

      @Nomgqibelo - your spelling and grammar is shocking!! Using words "lik" "dis" "de" - is NOT cool. It makes you sound STUPID. Secondly: Zoomer HUMBLE towards me as a "cizens"??? Are you flippen joking, humble? humble towards me for what? Just because you respect a 70year old sex addict that's only interested in upgrading his sex-farm, doesn't mean I have to!

  • elewies - 2012-10-04 10:12

    I can only imagine how sh#t this one is gonna be

  • denzil.small - 2012-10-04 10:25

    I think it's a great improvement cause it will be based on SA happenings, if you believe in it or not, if you don't like it, simply don't watch it. I will probably watch it as DSTV has so much repeats.

  • mulzar - 2012-10-04 10:25

    Hmmmmmm.... "It is set in the New Azania police department..." - "...the series was set in the future...". WTF!?

  • eddie.rocher - 2012-10-04 10:37

    Bring that tokoloshe - some people say its African magic and some say its African science and some say tokoloshe which fails from the science of which craft some say its an African Wisdom - so bring the sho and we will judge based on its pictures, stories and the lesson to be learnt thereof.

  • thembelani.masikane - 2012-10-04 12:16

    what's the difference between a goblin and a tokoloshe? Ain't the two the same?

  • daniel.w.gie - 2012-10-04 14:49

    the language useage by black commentators is appalling ..... is this a sign of their education , or lack thereof .

      beki.khumalo - 2012-10-04 15:31

      Clearly you have not read comments by Afrikaaners on this forum!

      thembelani.masikane - 2012-10-04 16:11

      Literacy rates are very low, 30% of adults are illiterate and the basic cause is the lack of money to fund education. Although large amount of money(R207-billion for 2012/13) is spent on educational programmes, resources are not enough to provide every learner with the opportunity to become a confident reader and writer. This is a serious matter! It is not surprising that illiterate people vote for ANC.

    Inspired by stories published in the Daily Sun? Just lost the little interest I had in local productions... Another series of bad accents, I suppose!
