African entertainment channel Scoop Network Africa will launch on pan-African satellite TV broadcast network Kwesé TV on July 26th.
Scoop Network’s programme schedule will consist of a mix of light entertainment magazines with movie, music, fashion and celebrity news.
“It’s the first fully localised feed of Scoop Network and we’re very confident the local audience will enjoy the mix of national and international content.” said Justus A. G. Verkerk, CEO of FCCE. “Around the world we meet cable and mobile operators, all looking for new and exclusive options. We offer an affordable turnkey solution. We’re really proud to work with Kwesé as a partner in 18 African countries. The new editorial team in the FCCE Nairobi office, our own studio facilities, local crews and local presenters and reporters will guarantee the local tone of voice and content. The talent search campaign is something that is really in the DNA of our company; we hope we can give young people from the African continent a platform to showcase their talent. And maybe, we even facilitate a spring board to the international markets. We already received screen tests that can compete in any other market. We’re very excited about all these new opportunities.”
