Must See TV

The CW Network recently unveiled its schedule for the 2007-2008 season with details about its upcoming schedule. Among the new shows is the family drama Life Is Wild, a story of a dysfunctional blended family from New York who moves to a rural South African town and finds they must rely on each other more than they ever did back home. The show will be filmed entirely in South Africa, with a diverse cast of American, British and South African actors. You can find out more about the show, as well as get a preview of what's to come at the CW Network's website: The show sounds promising ... let's keep our fingers crossed that Life Is Wild not feature a pet lion or anything of the sorts!

Speaking of the CW, hit-show Girlfriends got renewed for a history making 8th season! With Girlfriends going strong, the creator and executive producer behind the show Mara Brock Akil is making her mark as one of only a handful of African American females working behind the scenes in television. As Mara continues to make TV history we'll be watching.

South African in America said...

I'm already worried about this Life is Wild show.Upon further reasearch I found out that it's about a vetenerian moving his family to a South African game reserve. I'm assuming that the African big 5 will feature greatly in this show. Once again we Africans in America will have to repeat ad nauseum to CW viewers that Africa is not one big Game Reserve. I hope I'm proved wrong. Why can't the media make it easier for us just once!
