Carte Blanche Consumer is a South African current affairs television series produced by Combined Artists for M-Net as a spin-off of Carte Blanche, which assumes the role of a consumer rights watchdog that demands accountability and exposes hidden agendas.
It was the second of two Carte Blanche spin-offs (the other being Carte Blanche Medical) which both premiered in January 2010.
The series premiered on M-Net on Thursday 21 January 2010, at 19h00. It continues for a year, with the option to renew it annually. New half-hour episodes air weekly.
Carte Blanche Consumer is produced by the same team that has guided Carte Blanche through the past two decades, and assumes the role of a consumer rights watchdog that demands accountability and exposes hidden agendas.
It’s a show that aims to not just entertain, but also educate and inform viewers about their rights as South African consumers.
Devi Sankaree Govender anchors the programme, joined by her field reporters Derek Watts, Bongani Bingwa and Annika Larsen.
