Step aside Kardashians, the Ranakas are here to take over reality TV
It has on Wednesday been announced that Dineo Ranaka’s family is set to star in a new reality series on Mzansi Magic.
Titled The Ranakas, the show is set to take a candid look at how an authentic local family deals with the stresses of 21st century living, within an African context.
The upcoming show is a spin-off of the highly successful VUZU AMP reality show Dineo’s Diary, wherein viewers caught glimpses of this very animated household.
Dineo, who has now made the transition from on-screen talent, to executive producer revealed that the experience of filming with her family has been “amazing”.
“It’s been an incredible experience working on this production with my amazing, dynamic family. The Ranakas wear their hearts on their sleeves,” she said.
“We are a vibrant family made of strong characters, and I believe that the audience will form personal relationships with each character. The truest, most genuine family dynamics will be seen: from tests of loyalty, sibling rivalry, love and all its challenges, to joy and sorrow alike, the production is nothing short of incredible. I’m excited for the country to share in on our story.”
You can catch The Ranakas from Thursday, 12 January at 8PM on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161).
