TV Show About Zambia is Going to Be Awesome, But Needs Development Funds

0

Brian Matambo is the creative genius behind a reality TV show that puts the beautiful African country of Zambia front and centre. He is relying on the time and energy of enthusiastic participants, but also requires some production funds to get the project underway.

Filming commences on the 21st of March, so there isn’t much time left to support this worthwhile project.

INFO ABOUT THE SHOW

The Tourism Reality Show is a series that combines tourism experience of 12 contestants fighting for $10,000 and their social media prowess to market Zambia as a worthy tourism destination. Our objective in this show is to show off Zambia’s tourism potential, increase tourist arrivals, and provide entertainment to over 20 million viewers on ZNBC TV, DSTV and on the internet. We are integrating the show with social media in order to have enhanced engagement befitting this Social Media era

Short Summary from Brian Matambo

My name is Brian Matambo from Zambia in Central Africa, a country blessed with so much culture, wildlife, adventure opportunities and home to the mighty Victoria Falls, one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.

I have worked as a social media consultant for Government in tourism related projects as well as in media related projects. I developed this idea after noting that neighboring Zimbabwe records over 2,5 million tourist arrivals annually, meanwhile my country Zambia, still records less than 1 million tourist arrival annually.

The Tourism Reality TV show will leverage Social Media for increased and measurable engagement and ensure that the message on social media as well as our advertisers messages, reach the audience and we can measure our impact with the ultimate goal is to increase both domestic and international tourist arrivals.

The show is not only an entertainment TV series, but it is educational as much as it will be suspenseful with competition as the contestants fight for a $10,000 prize.

It is a double edged sword with both Social Media and Reality TV being the most attention grabbers today. We will be reaching millions on television and many more on social media with measurable metrics.

It is the production costs that are often a challenge in these projects and this is why I wish to passionately appear to you as you read this to help me and my team to finance the smooth production of this show. We need resources for transporting both the contestants to the tourism locations, and for accommodation, as well as to meet other incidentals and beefing up on our production kit.

The Impact

Impact

Tourism is rated second only to Agriculture in Zambia as a key economic driver. This show is set right in the heart of this important ideology of creating jobs, and lifting the quality of service, and experiences in the tourism sector.

To be precise this show will expose Zambia tourism potential and lead to an increase in tourist arrivals. This will mean better foreign exchange which overall is needed for the entire nation of Zambia.

Increased tourist arrivals will also lead to increase economic activities in the tourism catchment areas. Such activity can lead to demand for more good and services, and the spiral impact of that is that government will collect more tax, jobs will be created, and the travel and tourism sector will grow in the process.

Risks & Challenges

The challenge with this kind of projects is acquiring air time to broadcast the show as well as our ability to sell advertising time on the show.

To deal with these two challenges we have gone into an MOU with the biggest broadcaster in Zambia and we have since obtained 3575 minutes. This comes with over 950 minutes in advertising slots. This represents an average projection of $450,000.

To ensure that we sale the advertising slots, we have filmed a trailer meant to pitch the show and sell advertising. And we have also engaged a sale person to sale the advertising minutes commercially.
