End of the road for Egoli


South Africa’s first ever locally produced soap, Egoli – Place of Gold, which first started broadcasting on M-Net in April 1992, will come to the end of its run on 31 March 2010. Egoli was created and is produced by Franz Marx Films.

“Egoli has been a crown jewel on the M-Net schedule for many years, but no television programme can exist in this diverse environment forever,’ says M-Net’s Director of General Entertainment, Theo Erasmus. “It was a difficult decision, as we know that Egoli has such a loyal fan base, but the magic of M-Net will continue with an array of fresh, new local shows which will lure even more viewers to the channel in future.’

Franz Marx comments: “The past 18 years with M-Net have been exciting, but all good things must inevitably come to an end.’
