Money, power and family are at the forefront of the drama series Filthy Rich, which is among Newen Distribution’s ATF highlights.
Dirty Laundry, meanwhile, is about a suburban mother who is arrested for money laundering. Both dramas are produced for TVNZ.
“I have no doubt that our charming characters from Dirty Laundry and all the glamour along with the intensity of Filthy Rich’s storyline will seduce Asian buyers,” says Sophie Eap, Newen Distribution’s international sales manager. “We have struck a few strong partnerships in the kids’ space in Asia over the last couple of years, and we are especially proud of our recent partnership with Discovery Kids in Asia on our animated edutainment series Loopdidoo,” Eap adds. “We are now confident that our new drama slate from New Zealand will also spark strong interest among our Asian buyers.”
Another highlight is Out of Control, which “enables viewers to experience and relive certain events that shook the whole world,” Eap says.
