DISCOP Johannesburg Spotlight: Record TV


Stories rooted in biblical tales feature prominently in the offering from Record TV.

Its latest is the soap opera Jesus. Delmar Andrade, the company’s international sales director, says that the series presents Jesus in a different way than he has commonly been portrayed, bringing to light important stories that are not so well-known. “This is the first time Jesus’s story will be told with a wealth of details,” he says.

Record TV also has in its catalog Moses and the Ten Commandments, which has sold around the world in countries across Latin America, Africa, Europe and the U.S., as well as The Rich and Lazarus and The Promised Land. “We hope that Jesus generates even more success than Moses and the Ten Commandments has,” says Andrade.

He adds: “Record TV’s productions have conquered Africa’s market, and the demand for our product is very strong in the region.”
