TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

I couldn’t be­lieve my eyes when I saw the Scan­dal! and Bro­ken Vows cross­over on 28 March on e.tv. Is more com­ing? – TIAAN, VIA FACE­BOOK It’s a pos­si­bil­ity, ac­cord­ing to e.tv man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Mar­lon Davids. “We are mulling the idea of do­ing this with other shows as well.” The plan­ning for the cross­over started in Novem­ber last year “and it was a case of the two pro­duc­tions com­pa­nies ham­mer­ing out the de­tails”. In­ter­na­tional soaps like Bold & Beau­ti­ful (1987- cur­rent) and Young & Rest­less (1973- cur­rent) have done it, “And we felt it is our turn to do the same. The only thing was to find the per­fect sto­ry­line and made it feel au­then­tic and that the view­ers don’t get lost”. Mar­lon adds that al­though soaps were the “eas­i­est” to do, “we are look­ing at other of our lo­cal shows as well.” Al­though it has never hap­pened on SABC soaps, there was a link back in 1999 with Isidingo (1998- cur­rent) and drama The Vil­lagers (1976-1978). Clive Scott played bar­man Ted Dixon in The Vil­lagers and Isidingo.

Scan­dal! did a crossvoer with fel­low e.tv show Bro­ken Vows re­cently.
