Isidingo Appoints A New Headwriter

Endemol Shine Africa, the makers of Isidingo, SABC3’s signature weekday soapie are looking to make more positive changes to the team driving the award winning drama series.

Rohan Dickson, head writer, will take over the reigns as executive producer from Pumla Hopa who will be moving to the production company’s Randburg head office, where she’ll work on a number of projects within the Scripted Entertainment division, headed up by Sam Shale.

Leo Phiri has also been promoted into the role of producer on the series.

As the show’s head writer for the past two years, Dickson is the perfect person to lead Isidingo to even greater heights than it has enjoyed since he first joined the show. 
“The combined strengths of Rohan and Leo will lead Isidingo into a new era,” Endemol Shine CEO Sivan Pillay said. 
“It’s an exciting time for cast and crew alike.”
Dickson was tasked with rebuilding the writing team two years ago. 
“I assembled a diverse collective of creative people,” he recalled. 
“Some of whom are award winning writers with decades of experience.” 
“Our talented team at Isidingo is passionately committed to this new adventure. Horizon Deep has many twists and turns, shocks and scandals in the pipeline, so stay glued to your screens.” 
Catch Isidingo on  Monday through to Friday at 19h00 on SABC3.
