APOS Spotlight: Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia


Under the bouquet of Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia, AXN has added to its lineup the high-octane reality series Team Ninja Warrior, the crime drama Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders season two and the newly launched U.S. hit MacGyver.

“AXN is Asia’s top destination for pan-regional original productions,” says Virginia Lim, the senior VP and head of content, production and marketing at Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia. “We’re building a robust pipeline of original series for both AXN and its sister channel, Sony Channel, and we welcome creative ideas and fresh concepts for new, original series that truly reflect our channel brands. They should also be locally relevant, highly engaging and thoroughly entertaining for our Asian audiences so that they keep returning to AXN and Sony Channel for more.”

Lim adds, “AXN continues to deliver programming that is smart, intriguing and unexpected and delivered close to U.S. telecasts.”
