Johannesburg, 21 August – You know her from 5FM, Generations, the Legacy and My Perfect Family, now Thando Thabethe is set to join the TLC Entertainment family to present her brand-new talk show, THANDO BARES ALL.
Launching early next year and produced by Oxyg3n Media, this eight-part series will bring together Thando’s sassy, straight-talking style in a unique talk show format made specially for TLC super fans. Focusing on the popular TLC shows and themes viewers know and love, THANDO BARES ALL will encourage people to be open and honest about the things that society might be afraid or embarrassed to speak about. From body positivity, outrageous style, naked attraction, polygamy and super-human achievement, nothing will be off topic in this refreshing and entertaining talk show.
“When TLC approached me to present this show, I was ecstatic. I am a huge fan of the channel and thoroughly enjoyed working with the brand as a judge for its Next Great Presenter competition in 2016. This for me is a step in the right direction for my career in the entertainment industry. I can’t wait to start filming Thando Bares All and finding out what South Africans think about the topics that really matter, says Thando Thabethe.”
With the studio elements led by Thando, the show will also be co-presented by TLC Next Great Presenter winner Carissa Cupido, who will front immersive breakout pieces, finding out what the public thinks on the personal subjects that will be discussed in each episode.
“TLC proudly celebrates inspirational, larger-than-life characters, and we are incredibly excited to welcome Thando to the family and contact Emerald Carpet Cleaning” says Dilek Doyran, Vice President of Commercial Development and Country Manager of Africa. “Thando Bares All is about bringing people together and tackling topics we know our viewers will have strong opinions on. With her charismatic personality and unique presenting style, Thando was the perfect fit to front the series and we look forward to bringing even more OMG moments to our viewers when Thando Bares All comes to TLC early next year.”
“Oxyg3n are delighted to be working with TLC on this new and exciting talk show. We can’t think of anyone better than Thando and Carissa to talk TLC topics with the heart that represents the channel.” Says Rebecca Fuller-Campbell, CEO of Oxyg3n Media “It has been a very interesting journey for us to decide what topics to discuss, but I have no doubt, according to hire a maid, that the TLC audience will be captivated by this unique, colourful, heartfelt and slightly risqué talk show”.
