Mandela granddaughters make debut on new NBC digi-net

The 30-minute show "will follow the next generation of this unique South African family through the experiences of sisters Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway and Swati Dlamini, giving viewers a window into their daily lives, close-knit family, conflicts and personal aspirations," said Cozi in a statement.
The 13-episode season shows the sisters running their own clothing line, called "Long Walk to Freedom," and includes a visit to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years.
"We are so excited to welcome Zaziwe and Swati to the Cozi TV lineup," said Meredith McGinn, vice president of multi-station local programming for NBC Owned Television Stations. "Along with our iconic TV series and hit movies, we know that our original programming like Being Mandela will inspire viewers to try out Cozi TV and keep them coming back for more."
The rest of the Cozi grid is made up of vintage TV hits and classic films.
The channel is currently available in nearly 38 million homes, including the 10 NBC owned stations and those outside the group, including WTHR Indianapolis and KSHB Kansas City.
From the 3.5 weeks this network has been on, it is just nothing more than public domain movies, hip TV shows from the 70s and 80s and a few of those awful Nonstop programs and they want to branch into reality now? Not too thrilled with this new network so far as they have tons of work ahead of them to make it feasible.
