Cape Town – There’s a hot new talk show that is ready to storm SuperSport.

Celebrated presenter Dan Nicholl will take the helm of his new lifestyle-themed show on Wednesday nights on SuperSport 1, enabled by a partnership with life insurance player, BrightRock.  

“We’re excited to be involved with bringing a fun and accessible new format to South African TV screens,” said BrightRock Executive Director, Suzanne Stevens, ahead of the show’s launch.

“Dan’s show is all about ringing the changes and creating a brand new genre of entertainment. That’s very much what we’re doing at BrightRock.”

Each week a trio of guests, drawn from both the sporting and entertainment worlds, will join Nicholl live in studio for an evening of light-hearted banter that introduces South Africa to a new side of established faces.

Focusing on the people and their stories The Dan Nicholl Show will showcase familiar South Africans, and the occasional international guest in an unseen light.

With a live studio audience cheering on the guests and a three-minute insert in each episode, SuperSport is set for an exciting new addition to its line-up.

The new show will see MasterChef judge Pete Goffe-Wood, former Proteas captain Graeme Smith and former Bafana Bafana star Shaun Bartlett as its guests in the first episode.

With Nicholl joining the likes of Juan Mata, Lennox Lewis, Ralf Schumacher and Ruud Gullit as a Laureus ambassador, Laureus Sport For Good Foundation is the official charity of the show and will be featured through the season.

Nicholl has extensive experience at events around the world, but is very proud to call South Africa home - and is determined to make The Dan Nicholl Show a homegrown South African success story.

“We’re delighted to showcase Dan to our viewers,” said Brandon Foot, Acting Chief Executive of SuperSport.

“Nothing is ever quite what it seems with Dan. He’s funny, a little off-the-wall and knows how to work a room. We look forward to him giving us his inimitable spin on the stars of sport.”

The first broadcast will be on Wednesday, 1 April at 8.30pm on SuperSport 1 (Channel 201).
