Showmax renews Safta-winning Jan

The Afrikaans lifestyle reality show, Jan, on VIA (DStv 147) and Showmax has been renewed for a second season.

Jan, following the French and European adventures of the South African Michelin-star chef Jan-Hendrik van der Westhuizen – who has a restaurant, Jan, in Nice, France – is produced by Carien Loubser of Brainwave Productions.

The show won a Golden Horn trophy as Best Variety Show this past Saturday at the National Film and Video Foundation’s 13th South African Film and Television Awards.

“We are proud to have helped share this top-quality Afrikaans content with the world,” says Izelle Venter, VIA channel head.

The second season of Jan is scheduled to start in the spring of 2019 later this year. In the new season viewers will get a more in-depth look into his restaurant in Nice, France.
