Showmax confirms The Real Housewives of Nairobi, slated to begin production in September

Published

output.auto 4
African streaming service Showmax, in partnership with NBCUniversal Formats, is bringing The Real Housewives to Nairobi.
The Real Housewives of Nairobi, which will debut in 2023 as a Showmax Original, is the 22nd international version of The Real Housewives format and the sixth to be adapted in Africa.
The Real Housewives of Nairobi builds on the success of other African franchises like The Real Housewives of Johannesburg, which was one of the 10 most streamed domestic series on Showmax in 2019, as well as Durban (RHOD) and Lagos (RHOLagos), which both broke records on Showmax and were trending #1 on Twitter in their respective countries.
Denise Mwende, Showmax Content Specialist in East Africa, said: “As an African streaming platform, Showmax is dedicated to telling diverse African stories, and celebrity reality TV remains a genre that excites our viewers across Africa. We love to watch other people’s lives, and The Real Housewives of Nairobi is a chance to get a much closer look at Nairobi’s elite.”
The Real Housewives of Nairobi is being produced by Eugene Mbugua’s D&R Studios (formerly Young Rich Television), the production company behind Kenya’s biggest docu-reality shows and Showmax favourites like the 2021 Kalasha nominee Sol Family; the 2021 Kalasha nominee and 2022 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice (AMVCA) nominee This Love; 2022 reality series Kyallo Kulture; 2018 Kalasha nominee Stori Yangu and 2019 Kalasha winner Our Perfect Wedding.
“The team at D&R Studios is very stoked about the opportunity to produce The Real Housewives of Nairobi,” said Mbugua. “We’ve had a long and good relationship with Showmax, and are very excited to now be working together on an international format. We’ve gone through a very rigorous process of being shortlisted and are now geared up and ready to start production.”
“D&R Studios already has a portfolio of celebrity reality content like Sol Family, This Love and Kyallo Kulture under their belt. They understand the structure, and are willing to work hand in hand with our local teams and NBCUniversal to bring the Nairobi franchise to life,” added Denise Mwende.
On what the audience can expect with Nairobi, following the success of other African franchises, Mbugua said, “There’s quite a bit of pressure from the audience to deliver a stellar show but if what we’ve seen in the casting process is anything to go by, Nairobi promises to hold its own. Fans can expect surprises in everything, from the choice of the cast to the storylines. The Real Housewives of Nairobi is going to be the show to watch.”
As you wait for The Real Housewives of Nairobi, you can binge-watch these African franchises on Showmax: The Real Housewives of Lagos, The Real Housewives of Durban S1-2 and The Real Housewives of Johannesburg S1-2.

Al Jazeera English is proud to announce its end of year slate of new international documentaries

Published

on

El ARENA Lebanon 11

Al Jazeera English (AJE) is home to some of the best, most diverse and unique documentaries from around the globe. The Internationally aclaimed  broadcaster showcases a wide range of stories, storytellers, perspectives and genres, in films which offer insight, understanding, information and empathy, to complement its global news. AJE airs over 300 documentaries a year, in regular strands and stand-alone slots.

AJE’s latest slate premieres several themed series as well as powerful single documentaries. In ‘Bollywood Dreams’ audiences  follow some of the thousands of ‘strugglers’ across India, who pin their futures and hopes on Bollywood. In the USA, Colombia, Finland and Australia’s Torres Strait Islands we observe First Nation communities reclaim their heritage, combat environmental disaster and fight to sustain their lives and livelihoods. The award-winning ‘Africa Direct’ returns for a second series, with African filmmakers telling African stories in immersive, first-person short docs. AJE’s flagship strand Witness premieres several new films including from Ukraine, India, Iraq, Armenia, South Sudan, Algeria, Spain and Lebanon.

Beyond the premieres, AJE will show some outstanding environmental and football films again in November and December. Witness Australia’s bushfires up close, and experience the permafrost during COP. And while the world is glued to football fields, AJE goes off the pitch to understand six football clubs in the popular series ‘The Fans Who Make Football’.

AJE’s Documentaries unit accounts for around a quarter of the Channel’s total output. From immersive, character-led stories to issue-led exposures, the films prioritise the human lived experiences behind news stories. They aim to challenge prevailing narratives about people, places and power by elevating seldom-heard voices and featuring people telling their own stories.Its documentaries present a range of experiences, lives and views to help viewers think, understand, feel and connect with the world around them.

Our award-winning documentaries provide great range, depth and nuance to our daily news coverage,” said Giles Trendle, Managing Director of Al Jazeera English, “and we are lucky to have a talented and diverse team which works with a wide array of filmmakers from around the world.”

Ingrid Falk, Manager of Programmes said  “Stories are hugely important in shaping our understanding of the world, so we in the Documentaries unit focus as much on how we tell stories, and who tells them, as the subject matter itself. We try to shift the power of the storytelling itself towards those who have experience the events – we have the space to move away from presenters and reporters as authoritative voices towards first person narratives. Our philosophy is that when we see and hear from people directly, confidently, centred in their own stories, only then can we reimagine notions of authority and power. And in this very unequal world, that is an important thing to do.”
