Do you have an idea that you think could be the next Tali’s Wedding Diary, or a worthy successor to The Girl From St Agnes? At Showmax, we’re dedicated to nurturing great South African talent, but it’s tough for us to consider every idea that’s submitted.

As a rule, we don’t accept unsolicited submissions. But if you still want to share your idea with us, please remember that we receive many proposals for programming, and some of them may be similar to or even identical to the idea you have. Your idea may also be similar to proposals that Showmax itself is already developing, or has previously developed and/or produced.

Any ideas we receive are reviewed by our commissioning teams, who will send an email response in the next feedback cycle.

If you’re still really keen to tell us your idea, here’s how:

We’re also in the process of creating a submissions portal to allow for streamlined submissions. Please check back with us in the coming months for more details.
