Cape Town Duo Debut New Cartoon Network Series

Well, this should be fun!

Published

on

Life’s challenging and unusual times demand a little bit of laughter, well, maybe some ROFL!

That’s what Cartoon Network Africa’s new original production, CN to the Rescue, is here for. Available from the 14th of November on Cartoon Network Africa’s YouTube channel, the show is set to keep audiences laughing uncontrollably with pure African humour and fresh, imaginative content relating to everyday situations in the African household with a multitude of characters representative of the true African family.

What would the world be without inja ye game, our hero and cool brother, Tapiwe Lembwa, who is fun-loving and creative – and did we mention, Cartoon Network’s greatest fan in all of Africa?

With the help of his cartoon chommies, and visits to his ‘Imagination Room’ filled with archives of his favourite Cartoon Network episodes, he solves daily household mshikashika in a surprising and imaginative way.

However, with a no-nonsense slay queen of a mother, intensely focused bra, Garcia, who always gets drawn into Taps’s schemes, and a quiet, but wakker Gogo, no day – or episode – is without its twists and hilarious fun!!

Wacky ‘slap-chic’ African comedian, André Lembwa, brings CN to the Rescue to life.  Born in Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), before moving to South Africa, Lembwa’s primarily known for his impersonations of diverse nationalities, from Congolese, Nigerian, to South African and beyond. In 2019, André met Capetonian filmmaker, Howard James Fyvie, and next thing they knew – CN to the Rescue was born!

“I am ecstatic to be part of CN to the Rescue on Cartoon Network Africa’s YouTube channel,” says Lembwa. “This collaboration is an all-new format that combines the power of Cartoon Network with the clever use of local comedy and humour. I know that young audiences and families across Africa rate Cartoon Network, and I know they will enjoy the crossover of their favourite channel with their soon to be favourite family – The Lembwas!”

And no, you are not seeing double! Lembwa plays the central character, Tapiwe (aka Taps), and all three family members, the nerdy younger brother, Garcia, their glam mom, Lyzette, and of course the happy-go-lucky Gogo. With remarkably distinct characteristics for each new character, it can be easy to forget just how many roles Lembwa takes on in the series.

This quintessentially African show, primarily targeting 8-14-year-olds, further demonstrates Cartoon Network’s commitment to scaling up and sustaining the quality of local kids’ fun and imaginative entertainment.

The series will consist of seven episodes of seven to nine minutes long, launching weekly from Saturday, 14 November through to Saturday, 19 December outside of the traditional linear ecosystem, exclusively on YouTube.

WATCH: Official Trailer of The Underground Railroad

Check out the trailer from The Underground Railroad starring Thuso Mbedu!

Published

The Underground Railroad Thuso Mbedu

If you needed another reason to flex about the crop of talent that South Ah exports to the U.S., Thuso Mbedu is the latest case study.

The actress is set to feature on an Amazon Prime Video’s limited series as lead on The Underground Railroad. She plays the role of Cora Randall in Barry Jenkins’ 10-episode series that is adapted from Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel.

The novel follows the story of Cora, a slave who concocts a plan to escape from a plantation in Georgia with the help of her trusted companion, Caesar. The duo’s journeys out of the Antebellum South sees them make a run for it though the rumoured underground railroad.

While on the run, hot on the heels of her every turn is a bounty hunter that is intent on catching her because the only other slave that evaded his clutches was Cora’s mother. Cora flees from state to state, passing North and South California in search for freedom – a journey that leads her to Tennessee.

The series will drop next month May 14 on the streaming platform. The thespian has been dropping scenes from the series on the socials as teasers. Cav

Multichoice is the growth in catalogue their customers are being able to access through this channel. Nyiko Shiburi, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa said through a press statement; “We are excited to add Amazon Prime Video to the DStv Explora Ultra’s pot of exceptional content. This opportunity unlocks access to more quality global content for our customers and is another way to access Amazon Prime Video content, whilst complementing DStv’s promise to offer the very best in local content.”

The famed Big Brother Naija season 5 winner Lekan Agbeleshe aka Laycon, will be appearing in a first-ever Showmax Nigerian Original. Entitled I Am LAYCON, the feature will premiere on the streaming platform in February 2021.

Fans of BBNaija and lovers of exciting reality TV are invited to follow Laycon on his journey after BBNaija, as he settles into life as a star with his own reality TV show, while juggling his personal relationships and growing music career in one of Africa’s biggest cities, Lagos. Will he achieve his ambition to blow? 
 

“I am excited to continue my new life journey and embrace the new responsibilities of evolving not just myself but everyone around me,” says Laycon. “I want you to come along for the ride as you get to see the growth that you have supported and loved.” 

 Last week, Laycon continued with his winning streak, landing a brand ambassadorship deal with GOtv. 

 Other upcoming Showmax Originals include Jahmil X.T. Qubeka’s ancient Africa series Blood Psalms, a co-production with Canal+ International, and Uthando Lodumo, a reality series about South Africa’s gqom queen Babes Wodumo and her fiancé, Mampintsha, all expected in 2021.
