The Next of Next Week initiative is an edutainment sitcom comprising of fifty-two, 3-5 minute episodes and will be aired on etv from Mid-May 2015. The episodes cover topics such as investments, retirement planning, savings, insurance, rights and responsibilities as a consumer when dealing with financial services providers and credit, to list a few.
The sitcom is based on Innocent and Kanana, two young men who are very close friends and have grown up together in the township .Their comical, but very real every-day adventures, trials and tribulations create the world in which the series is set. The outcome is entertaining and engaging content which audiences can easily relate to. Each episode uses humour to convey key financial literacy messages to consumers.
This initiative is done in partnership with the South African Insurance Association (SAIA), the Financial Services Board (FSB) and produced by Diprente Films (Pty) Ltd.
