DISCOP Johannesburg Spotlight: ABS-CBN Corporation


At DISCOP Johannesburg, ABS-CBN Corporation is highlighting its three best-selling dramas, Asintado, The Blood Sisters and Forever My Love.

The company is also featuring Your Moment, a two-in-one reality-talent competition searching for the best dancing and singing duos and groups from around the globe, featuring a state-of-the-art set.

“We believe that these programs will appeal to African buyers because these shows provide excellent content with characters that are authentic, inspiring and empowering,” says Laarni J. Yu, sales head for EMEA at ABS-CBN Corporation. “These dramas are very relatable to the African market as they tell stories of families with unwavering faith, hope and resilience. We create stories with moral values that touch and transform lives on deeply personal yet universal levels.”

Yu adds, “Our dramas are very well-received in Africa, and we want to continue being the leading provider of Filipino content in this market.”
