Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) will lead a delegation of Singaporean companies to MIPCOM that boast a wide variety of content, from documentaries and dramas to animation, lifestyle and more.
“International buyers can look forward to new content formats in the form of the VR series Dangerous Jobs and the 4K series First Man Out, both supported under a partnership between IMDA and Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific,” says Howie Lau, chief industry development officer for IMDA.
Dangerous Jobs is about men who earn a living in Asia’s most hostile environments, while First Man Out follows Ed Stafford in a race to reach a predetermined point in some of Asia’s deadliest places. Another series that showcases Asian culture is the drama Folklore, supported under a partnership between IMDA and HBO Asia.
“IMDA continues to bring the best of Asian stories to the global stage,” Lau says.
