primetime shine

e.tv’s giv­ing their 16:30-22:00 slots a facelift – and it’s look­ing good.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

it’s time for some se­ri­ous change and that’s ex­actly what e.tv’s do­ing. the freeto-air chan­nel is giv­ing its primetime slot a dra­matic over­haul and from mon­day 2 march, the evening lineup will look a lot dif­fer­ent. from a newly added zulu news bul­letin at 18:30 to brand-new lo­cal dra­mas, e.tv’s giv­ing us more lo­cal con­tent than ever.

the most dra­matic slot change is rhythm city’s move from 18:30 to 19:00. this means the english news also finds it­self a new home at 20:30 on week­nights, while it still re­mains in the 19:00 slot over week­ends.

an­other high­light is the ad­di­tion of e.tv’s first te­len­ov­ela, ashes to ashes. this 104-episode se­ries will delve into the world of the fu­neral par­lour in­dus­try and the var­i­ous re­la­tion­ships within it. for­mer gen­er­a­tions ac­tor pa­trick shai will take on the lead­ing role, with more stars be­ing an­nounced soon. mean­while, there’s a shakeup at 18:00 – talk­show katch it with khanyi stays put on mon­days, eksê loses a day and airs on tues­days and wed­nes­days so that e.tv can in­tro­duce a new gos­sip show on thurs­days. plus, club 808 is re­brand­ing and mov­ing to fri­days at 18:00.

sea­son 2 of the steve har­vey show takes can­celled queen lat­i­fah’s 16:30 slot, fol­lowed by an in­ter­na­tional sit­com at 17:30 on week­days. here’s a quick break­down of what e.tv will look like…
