Star TV to liven up its weekend schedule

Star TV plans to liven up its weekend schedule with a string of new programmes as it seeks to build on its hugely successful weekday lineup of soaps and gameshows. The channel will air six new shows, starting July 8, featuring a mix of dance, horror, travel, music, games and mythology.

Star's shows aired from Monday to Thursday rate among the top three of the 10 in the weekly television rating chart.

The horror show Ssshhhh...Koi hai... will feature eerie stories about ghosts and monsters meant to keep children and teenagers on the edge of their seats.
