SABC2 has introduced its new reality show, SHOWVILLE, that brings the glam and glitz of TV to the remote and often overlooked areas across Mzansi. The show will start on 06 February at 19h30 and will be hosted by Rob Van Vuuren and Bontle Modiselle.
Rob and Bontle will visit different towns each week to scout and select four finalists whose performances could win them R10, 000 cash prize and the glory of newfound fame.
The Series centres on the often overlooked but unforgettable behind-the-scenes moments of small town talent shows where wanna-be stars reach outside of their comfort zones – sometimes with side-splitting results – to put their talent to the test in nail biting auditions that never fail to entertain.
Co-produced by leading Cape Town-based TV production companies, Okuhle Media and Cooked in Africa Films, in conjunction with Sony Pictures UK, the production team travelled to 26 towns in the Western Cape, Free State and Kwa-Zulu Natal in search of hidden talent and inspiring stories.
