I'm definitely not one for reality TV series (I barely watch TV unless I absolutely have to), but I'm actually a bit curious about this one. I like the idea - essentially showing audiences the path to wealth taken by everyday folks like you and I, and how they handle financial success when they achieve it.

Initially it was very difficult for me to imagine a sci-fi story set in Africa... because all the sci-fi I'd been exposed to... had been western sci-fi... mainly centered around the future of the West. It was extremely difficult for me to imagine a future Africa. And when I tried, I even thought that some of the ideas I had were frankly patronizing.
