SABC 1 flagship property, Generations does not have enough content to keep the show on our small screens for the next coming three months, the City Press reported.
This despite the promise made by the show’s creator, Mfundi Vundla that measures are put in place to ensure that the show goes on. But the newspaper has learnt that the Generations’ creativity team has a very serious task that needs urgent attention.
“The only way to survive this is if Generations goes off air for a while to allow writers to come up with a new story and cast new faces,” a former writer who described the situation as a catastrophe told the newspaper.
A former executive producer added; “producers have a little to go on with her because they lost a lot of time in production last year. The best thing to do would be to kill the fired actors, go off air and recast.”
The Generations production suffered a major blow last week when the actors revived the strike they put on hold last year November following the intervention from the SABC top brass. On Monday 18 August the production house responded by firing the 16 principal cast members that embarked on a strike.
The actors have since vowed to consider their legal options against the production house, MMSV and the public broadcaster, SABC.
