Hectic On 3
The new tween show on SABC3
On Monday 30th April, 2018 SABC 3 sets the stage with a brand-new tween show Hectic On 3! From 15:00 to 15:30 every weekday, Hectic On 3 offers young viewers aged 8-12 years old 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 explores 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.
There’s more to Hectic On 3 than just thirty minutes of fun and excitement! Each episode addresses issues that affect our sophisticated tween audiences, 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, Hectic On 3 is a character-driven spectacle led by Boitumelo ‘Melo’ Moloto - a familiar face to SABC 3’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 be part of it!
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”.
So, tune in to Hectic On 3 on SABC 3 Mondays to Fridays at 3pm from Monday 30th April for the first episode of Hectic On 3, the energetic new tween show that promises to pull out all the stops for the young viewers of the nation!
