The EbonyLife TV Auditions, which are scheduled for January 29 and 30, 2013, between 8am and 5pm at the Tinapa Studios, Calabar, Cross River state, would not only hope to replicate the massive success it enjoyed at its outing in Lagos last month, but it would also expect to set The Nation’s Paradise agog with the usual excitement, passion and possibilities that attend auditions of such events.
According to Ijeoma Agukoronye, Associate Producer, EbonyLife TV, “Calabar is the home of Media and Entertainment City Africa, which is equally home to EbonyLife TV. Calabar is therefore important to us. The good people of Calabar have welcomed and embraced us. The Auditions is our way of not only appreciating them, it is also our way of extending opportunities to them, knowing that in the process we would discover talented people and give them the platform to shine on our Channel and beyond.”
EbonyLife TV, through its Auditions, seeks to discover new, emerging talents in Nigeria and across the continent who fit into specific roles for the Channel’s upcoming programmes. It is an opportunity for all young Nigerian and African people with talents in Acting, Presenting, Modeling and even Comedy, to demonstrate their skills for a chance to become the stars they have always dreamt of becoming.
One of EbonyLife TV’s major differentiator is its programming which is going to be uniquely interactive and participatory. The programming will be rolled out in a Pan Africa wide broadcast on the DSTV platform through a channel distribution agreement signed with Multichoice Africa in 2012, and a Joint Venture Agreement signed with the Cross River State Government on building Africa’s first global multi-broadcast platform, at Studio Tinapa.
As part of its extensive distribution strategy, EbonyLife TV will also sit on Sky TV in the UK and DISH in the United States. Brazil, Canada and other parts of Europe are also not left out of the Global Roll out plan. In addition, EbonyLife TV has struck a remarkable partnership with Globecast, the leading global provider of content management and worldwide transmission services for professional broadcast delivery, to provide technical backbone and drive the Global Black TV Channel’s content distribution on multiple broadcast platforms like Android, Tablets, Mobile, Web and any other modern technological device made by man.
The EbonyLife TV brand is special because its programming is produced by Africans for the global black audience. The bouquet of programming cuts across content in drama, comedy, reality, lifestyle, talk, magazine, feature film and factual that speaks to the yearnings and aspirations of the African person.
