South Africa: New M-Net show delayed a week
The 13-part original South Africa reality format, Way of the Warrior, will start broadcasting a week later than scheduled on M-Net Action (Channel 106 on DStv), on Monday, 22 February at 6pm.
According to M-Net Action’s Channel Manager, Khosi Khanyile, the delay is due to the fact that M-Net is not 100% satisfied with the final first episode product. “We believe Way of the Warrior has the potential to become a signature show for the channel. Therefore we want our viewers to be hooked from the start and have worked around the clock to ensure that the format translates perfectly onto screen. We have given the production company [Gathered Moss Productions] another week’s grace to deliver a first episode that will set the scene for episodes to come.”
