TNT Africa announced the launch of its first Original Production, Escape to Pretoria, which will be aired in July. The new TNT Original catalogue offers a new and original movie which will be premiere on the first Saturday of every month, starting in July.
Escape to Pretoria is based on a true story of Tim Jenkin and Stephen Lee, played by Daniel Radcliffe and Daniel Webber, respectively. The young, white South Africans were branded ‘terrorists’ and were incarcerated in the maximum security-wing of Pretoria Central Prison where they sent the apartheid regime a clear message and escape.
“With this launch, we are expanding our TNT Africa’s channel offering. We’ve been extremely successful with our selection of American blockbusters to become the second most-watched movie channel in South Africa. We’re always obsessed with creating unique experiences for our fans, and with the new TNT Original Movies, we’re providing our audiences with an exciting, wide range, and consistent flow of high-quality programming across all genres,” announced Guillermo Farré, Head of General Entertainment Channels at WarnerMedia Africa.
