M-Net gives in to ‘Temptation’

Paybox offers local version of popular gamer

JOHANNESBURG — African paybox M-Net is celebrating its 20th anniversary by producing its second local gamer, a version of Australia’s longest-running gameshow, “Temptation,” for broadcast Sept. 25.

“Temptation South Africa” will closely follow the Australian format, in which contestants win or lose money by answering general knowledge questions, and the winner must decide whether to keep the prize or risk all for a bigger prize the following night.

M-Net head of local productions Carl Fischer said a Nigerian version, to air in the rest of Africa, also was being planned.

Paybox’s first local gamer was “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” in 2000.
