RBNL's maiden programming move post-acquisition, Zee content in afternoon band

MUMBAI: Big Magic has introduced an exclusive afternoon time-band with the launch of four shows, dedicated for matinee viewership.

After the acquisition deal with ZEEL, the channel has taken shows from Zee Channel’s library which includes ‘Kareena Kareena’, ‘Hudd Kar Di’, ‘Hum Sab Baraati’ and ‘Gudgudee’.

The shows started airing on 20 March. These popular shows of yesteryears based on light-hearted content are being telecast between 1pm & 3pm, Mon-Fri on Big Magic Channel, thus positioning the afternoon time-band as a nostalgia band.

The exclusive segment with an innovative content strategy of bringing back the golden era that is remembered by the audience, has been formulated after a detailed analysis of the afternoon time-band. ‘Kareena Kareena’, a show with a comic twist, airs at 1pm, followed by family entertainment show ‘Hudd Kar Di’. Viewers are further engaged with a lineup of ‘Hum Sab Baraati’, yet another comedy series, and ‘Gudgudee’, a light-hearted family entertainment show. Each episode of 30 minutes has been introduced with the objective of leveraging viewership trends of 1pm - 3pm slot.

Speaking about the development, a spokesperson from Big Magic said, “Big Magic caters to audience across age-groups and demographics with its fresh content and innovative show formats. We have drawn insights on the untapped potential of the afternoon time-band through an intricate market analysis and thus introduced these four new shows from Zee Channel’s archive. Our objective is to diversify our offerings for our viewers while adding more value to our brand. We look forward to reaching out to a wider set of audience while engaging them with appealing formats.”

With the re-introduction of these four popular shows, the channel is reviving the nostalgia associated with the golden era of 2000s in the minds of the viewers. It has also tapped the trend of entertaining and engaging viewers with content from the past and optimising its reach.
