Times Now beefs up its weekend line-up with two new shows on travel and lifestyle

Times Now has added more variety to its weekend offering with the launch of two new shows – ‘High Life’ and ‘Take a Break’. The two new shows on lifestyle and travel attempt to be experiential for the viewer. ‘High Life’ would air on Saturdays at 7.30 pm with a repeat telecast on Sundays at 10.30 am, while ‘Take a Break’ would air on Saturdays at 10.30 pm with a repeat telecast on Sundays at 1.30 pm.

Talking about the new shows, Arnab Goswami, Editor-in-Chief, Times Now, said, “We believe in offering viewers shows that they can both enjoy watching and which are useful to them. ‘High Life’ celebrates the high life, and will be very good viewing. And, just ahead of the holiday season, ‘Take a Break’ is a ready reckoner on places about town where one can take a few days off. Both the shows add to the fare on Times Now weekends.”

Both the shows have been produced in-house. Preeti Prasad, Executive Producer, Programming, said, “We’ve always believed in producing high quality programmes in-house, these two shows reinforce our commitment. Our shows like ‘Line of Duty’ (that won an award in Rome) have set the standards in non-fiction television production. Our new weekend shows entertain both the voyeur and the voyager in you.”

‘Take a Break’ shares experiences of destinations nestled close to metros like Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. The show premieres on November 25 at 10:30 pm and repeats on Sunday at 1:30 pm showcasing Malaika Shenoy’s journey from one destination to the next.

‘High Life’ is hosted by model and actor Tara Sharma and will showcase the best that money can buy.
