ATF Spotlight: Eccho Rights


Two of the lead offerings from Eccho Rights, Everywhere I Go and My Sweet Lie, are laced with themes of romance.

“Asia is still a huge follower of good, light, romantic dramas, which both Everywhere I Go and My Sweet Lie are,” says Nixon Yau Lim, head of AsiaPac at Eccho Rights. “Aside from that, the main actors in both series are the kind who make Asian audiences swoon and fall head-over-heels for.”

He adds, “Aside from rom-coms, there are some Asian OTTs that are into dark, gripping and edgy series.” Meeting this demand is Honour, which follows a group of female lawyers. “Honour is not only a great ready-made series from Sweden, but it also has huge potential as a remake for certain markets like India and perhaps even Thailand,” says Yau Lim.

He adds, “Asia is still a developing market for Eccho Rights, but we see so much potential in it.”
