SABC3’s new tween show Hectic On 3 has launched
SABC3 sets the stage with a brand-new tween show, Hectic On 3! From 3 to 3:30pm every weekday, the new show will offer young viewers aged 8 – 12 years a full half hour of quality live television, filled with fun, creativity, and plenty of slime!
Three is the name of the game on Hectic On 3, as each episode will explore three themes: Play, Create and Inspire. From DIY’s to demo’s, pranks and skits, our young viewers can expect an interactive television experience to entertain and teach tweens about the wonderful world around them.
But, there’s more to Hectic On 3 than just thirty minutes of fun and excitement. Each episode will address issues that affect our sophisticated tween audience, as they navigate the changes from childhood to teenage years and discover who they want to be as their independence grows.
As far as presenters go, the show is a character-driven spectacle led by Boitumelo ‘Melo’ Moloto – a familiar face to SABC3’s young audience from her appearance on Yum.Me Season 1. Boitumelo and a host of over-the-top characters form part of the Hectic On 3 “squad”. Plus, every tween in Mzansi is invited to participate.
Okuhle Productions, the company that brought viewers the flagship youth television show Hectic Nine-9, as well as Yum.Me, is no stranger to children’s television. As series producer, Wilna Van Schalkwyk says: “With over a decade worth of experience in children’s television, we’re extremely excited about the new shift for the Hectic brand. We can now focus specifically on our teen audience with Hectic Nine-9, and can now branch out and focus on a brand-new tween audience with Hectic On 3”.
