Being Mandela

Both Tambay (HERE), and I (HERE) have told you about Being Mandela, the reality TV show chronicling the lives of Zaziwe Diamini-Manaway and Swati Diamini, who are the granddaughters of Nelson and Winnie Mandela.

Though both women were born in South Africa, they spent much of their childhood in the U.S. before returning to their native land, when their grandfather was finally released from prison in 1991.

As the sisters said in a joint statement about their show: "This show is about us and our lives - both as individuals and as members of the Mandela family. It offers a window on how far we have come to re-establish our lives. We are excited to share the story of our lives and hopefully viewers will be able to appreciate how universal the human story is."

NBC has announced that Being Mandela will premiere next month on their new Cozi TV network, as the first original series on the channel.

You may have noticed Cozi TV recently, which replaced the NBC-owned network Nonstop, in local stations such as in Chicago, New York and L.A., and which is currently available in some 38 million homes around the country.

So far, the programming on Cozi has consisted of mainly old TV shows from the 70's and 80's, such as The Six Million Dollar Man and Magnum P.I., so Being Mandela is seen as a major step toward the further development of Cozi, in terms of original content.

The show will premiere on Thursday February 10 at 9PM (8PM Central), with repeat showings at 12 Midnight (11PM Central).
