Season 1

Jam Sandwich is a reality/documentary/entertainment series where musicians from different market segments of the South African music spectrum are put together to collaborate.

During the process they are expected to create one new original song and do a cover of an existing South African song.
 
Each show starts with a background on each artist, followed by various jam sessions during which the creative process is followed.

After the recording of the song, each artist is given R10,000 to spend in whatever way they see fit and in agreement with their collaborative partner.

Artists have the option of making a video, organising a live gig, buying new musical equipment, putting mags on their cars, going skydiving or blowing the money however they like. The only rule is they are not allowed to bank the money.

Participants in the first season included MXO & The New Academics, RJ Benjamin & Albert Frost, Madala Kunene & Valiant Swart, Gumshev & Blackie Swart, Cassette & Tidal Waves, DJ Cleo & Brickz with Snotkop, Radio Kalahari Orkes & Kwela Tebza, Karen Zoid & Dokte from Kallitz and others.

Jam Sandwich is a joint venture between Meerkat Media and Mahala Empowerment Media. Meerkat Media is co-owned by music industry expert, Deon Maas.

The producer is Pauli van Dyk and Michael Lee is the director. Sibusiso Molefe of Publicity Stunt is the Associate Producer.

The first season won two South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs): Best Music Show and Best Concept and Script.
