SABC3 has announced the launch of the channel's version of SABC1's acting reality show Class Act and BETs Top Actor.

It's called The Final Cut and it's a reality search to find two actors to join an SABC show.

There's no confirmation of which shows the winners will be cast in but it will either be a soapie or a drama, depending on who lands The Final Cut and which shows require new actors.

The series is looking for 14 undiscovered actors (who haven't been on TV before) for a 13-episode acting challenge.

Each week, the finalists will be put through acting challenges that will test their craft. Challenges are going to include learning a script in 15 minutes, character improvisation, character makeovers and genre intrepretation.

Someone will be eliminated by the judges each week and the two winners will be cast in series.

Pros and cons

The con

The auditions are only happening in three cities so the search doesn't have a nationwide reach. Castings are only happening in Pretoria, Pietermaritzburg and East London from 22 April to 13 May.

The pro

East London and Pietermaritzburg are often excluded when it comes to reality show auditions so it's a good opportunity for the acting talent in these areas.

If you live in another city you can audition in the three cities if you're in the area on the day.
