TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

There’s no such thing as a dull mo­ment when you’re work­ing in TV or at tvplus. A peace­ful Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon can change in a sin­gle phonecall – Mzansi Magic’s Isibaya (see more on p10) in­vited us to an “ex­cit­ing, top-se­cret” film­ing ses­sion the next day. And they weren’t kid­ding – guns, speed­ing taxis and kid­nap­pings… def­i­nitely not the worst way to spend a morn­ing, plus we got ac­cess to be­hind-the-scenes ac­tion that you’d never see on TV. Did you know that to fly the drone for aerial shots re­quires a spe­cialised R360 000 li­cence? That’s not the only ac­tion and drama in this is­sue of tvplus – e.tv is wel­com­ing How To Get Away With Mur­der (I love the twists in this show) and Chicago PD to its line-up (see more on p34 & 36), while Black Sails’ sea­son 3 is bring­ing Black­beard to SA shores… lit­er­ally and fig­u­ra­tively, since it’s filmed in Cape Town! But if that’s not to your taste, catch up with the com­edy fun on life­style show Red Cake on p33.

Isibaya’s turn­ing up the ac­tion.
