What does it take to turn an idea into a TV show? Africa No Filter Academy Presents: From pitch to TV Show with Multichoice is a deep dive into the world of television. It will be delivered by Sanele Shibe, a commissioning editor at Multichoice, in a fireside chat with Africa No Filter’s grants lead, Victor Mark-Onyegbu.
