New sports show on TV

2015-04-30 16:58

APRIL sees a fresh addition to SuperSport’s acclaimed line-up, as celebrated presenter Dan Nicholl takes the helm of his new lifestyle-themed show on Wednesday nights on SuperSport 1.

This has been made possible through a partnership with life insurance player, Bright Rock.

The first broadcast will be on Wednesday (01/04), at 20:30.

Each week a trio of guests, drawn from both the sporting and entertainment worlds, will join Nicholl live in studio for a light-hearted evening of banter.

Focusing on the people and their stories, and generally (but not always) ensuring a laugh, The Dan Nicholl Show will showcase familiar South Africans, and the occasional international guest, in an unseen light.

The three-part, 26-minute show will include a three-minute insert in each episode.

This gives the show the chance to include extra stars, with European Ryder Cup captain, Darren Clarke, and Ethiopian running legend Haile Gebrselassie among the guests in season one.

With a live studio audience cheering on the guests and the inserts adding a cutting edge to the show, SuperSport is set for an exciting new addition to its line-up, with MasterChef judge Pete Goffe-Wood, former Proteas captain Graeme Smith and former Bafana Bafana star Shaun Bartlett lined up for the first episode.

With Nicholl joining the likes of Juan Mata, Lennox Lewis, Ralf Schumacher and Ruud Gullit as a Laureus ambassador, the Laureus Sport For Good Foundation is the official charity of the show.

Laureus projects will be featured throughout the season, as will Nicholl’s fellow Laureus ambassadors and Laureus Academy members.

“We’re delighted to showcase Dan to our viewers,” said Brandon Foot, acting chief executive of SuperSport
