A NEW half-hour local series aimed at children aged eight to 12 is scheduled to start on SABC3 at 3pm on Monday, April 30. The new show for ’tweens is titled Hectic On 3 and each episode explores three themes: play, create and inspire.

“From DIY to demos, pranks and skits, our young viewers can expect an interactive television experience to entertain and teach ’tweens about the wonderful world around them,” says a spokesman for SABC3.

“There’s more to Hectic On 3 than just 30 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.”

Hectic On 3 is a character-driven seriese led by Boitumelo ‘Melo’ Moloto, a familiar face to SAB 3’s young audience from her appearance in season one of Yum.Me.

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 pProducer 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 new ’tween audience with Hectic On 3”.
