South Africa: SABC Launches New Locally Produced Hospital Drama - "Vutha"
The South Africa Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) seems to have followed e.tv back into the hospital drama space, as it also has announced a locally produced hospital drama called "Vutha" for its SABC2 channel.
These new productions signify a return to the hospital drama genre by South African terrestrial broadcasters since SABC's Hillside, Jozi-H and M-Net's Binnelanders.
Produced by Clive Morris Productions, Vutha, set in a local South African community and according to SABC "it will go beyond the world of medicine to the world of love, friendship, betrayal, hope, desperation, corruption, greed and crime".
Vutha promises to be a hit with audiences because it is a quality production that explores the journeys of medical professionals within in South Africa, considering the current circumstances when we are all thinking about health and well-being.
