Cape Town – Clifton Shores is coming to youth channel Vuzu (DStv channel 123) which has acquired the broadcasting rights to the high-glam and hot bodies local reality show set in South Africa's poshest of postal codes.

According to sources, Vuzu has picked up the 15-episode local reality show which was filmed in Cape Town last year and which will be shown on Vuzu from around May or slightly later this year.

Insiders tells Channel24 that Clifton Shores was picked up but that "it has not been scheduled".

Luxury yachts and massive mansions

The show, produced by South Africa's coal mining millionaire Quinton van den Bergh, follows a group of girls who work for his events and entertainment company Quintessential.

The Los Angeles girls live, play and party it up in the Mother City as drama and fights unfold in Clifton – with their boyfriends in tow.

Clifton Shores, which plays as a cross between MTV's Laguna Beach and The Hills, was not commissioned by a local broadcaster which gave the producers more control, creativity and leeway with what they wanted the show to be and how they wanted it to look.

The drama ventures from luxury yachts and massive mansions in Clifton to clubs and other swanky venues around Cape Town.

Clifton Shores stars Jamillette Gaxiola, Toby Moniz, Brett Roux, Rikki Brest, Claire Dante, Kathy David, Steven Jackson, Katie Marie, Destiny Moniz, Raquel O'Donoghue and of course Quinton van der Bergh himself.

    Wow - just reading that made me feel dumber already. Imagine sitting through mindless episode after mindless episode of this drivel.

      jpstrauss - 2012-02-21 12:30

      And delivered in that monotone south African productions are so famous for.

    Oh geez, not another "reality" show

  • Jean - 2012-02-21 12:18

    Americans love this kinda "mindless episode after mindless episode" so this is good exposure for CT/SA!! but must say CT looks hot in this show, just proves we can compete with any first class city!!

    This looks very scripted for a "reality show"...

  • cindy.smeda - 2012-02-21 13:53

    A must see guy's!!!

  • Bongani - 2012-02-21 14:52

    The biggest mistake made by the writter of this story was to mention the words "The drama ventures from luxury yachts and massive mansions in Clifton to clubs and other swanky venues around Cape Town". we all know most new24 readers are old and poor bitter people. They are now jealous of these sexy and hot ladies and gays. I support gay rights.

  • Se-a Spencer Ikeremm - 2012-02-21 15:00

    Why are they American girls? Couldn't find them in that flooded-with-talent Cape Town? Ah well, maybe it's b/c their tan is better than that of white SA girls, hard to believe they live under the African sun. But I'll watch the pilot to test it out;)

      Stefanus - 2012-02-22 07:12

      maybe they are hoping the show will go international eventually, they may be targetting the American public also. If it does well in the US&A then it will do well world wide

  • Anton - 2012-02-21 15:23

    only worth it if we get to see their tits

  • Stefanus - 2012-02-22 07:10


  • Stefanus - 2012-02-22 07:14

    I presume the target market is young women between the ages of 15 and 27

    The opportunity for a South African produced show to potentially raise its hand on a global scale is one I am fully in support of. South African pride is unmatched; we are a nation capable of remarkable things, and looking to the people who took the time to boost our country in the way that they know how, I applaud you. I will back this show and any initiative that seeks to elevate our potential, slowly leading us to our full capability. Who knows? This show may be the” little engine that could” and surprise us all! Perhaps this may spark another idea, another project or showcase a rising star! At least, it does show us that we can do this. We can criticise all we want, but why not rather let it inspire? Clifton Shores has made a start; broadcasting soon on local television and hopefully overseas. Does this not make you sit back and think that you have the ability to do something yourself? I sit here inspired that we don’t need to be Hollywood to do things like this: we can do this in our own back yard, using our own resources. We have every ingredient we need! And that makes me want more! To all of you, I wish tremendous success! To the South African crew, executives and ladies, you are an inspiration. Thank you!
