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.
