Asia Video Summit Spotlight: Turner Asia Pacific


Warner TV, part of the Turner Asia Pacific bouquet, will receive a refresh later this year under the banner “Home of the Superfans.”

“In Southeast Asia, Warner TV continues to have more day-and-date series than any of its competitors,” says Marianne Lee, VP of content for general entertainment at Turner Asia Pacific. Programming highlights include Blindspot, Lethal Weapon and the midseason action comedy Whiskey Cavalier, starring The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan.

The Korean entertainment channel Oh!K, meanwhile, is celebrating its fourth birthday with an “Oh!K 4ever” campaign. “The drama Return of Fortunate Bok and our variety shows have been real ratings drivers for the channel, but there are some big new additions to the lineup on their way,” says Lee. This includes My Secret, Terrius, starring So Ji-sub, known for his role in the 2013 series Master’s Sun.

Lee adds, “We are looking forward to two big brand campaigns starting in the last quarter of the year.”
