“This is significant because it proves that limited series have an audience pull that can rival telenovela/soapies DSTV audience is showing with their remotes that they are serious about being tired of telenovela More series please! From different production houses.”
This is GOLD 🙌.
We are not celebrating the fall of #TheQueenMzansi we are celebrating the rise of #umkhokha and a huge thank you to the viewers who watched because now we can boldly say there is a market for short series (10-15 episodes) & we have numbers to back us up ❤️🙏 https://t.co/yahXWCplwJ
