Singapore’s MediaCorp and Taiwanese production company Mission International have signed a memorandum of understanding for content development at the Asia TV Forum and Market (ATF).
Mission International is led by producer Angie Chai, best known for hit teen idol drama “Meteor Garden” and forming successful boyband F4.
Mediacorp and Mission International will co-develop scripts in the fantasy-romance, coming-of-age and female empowerment genres. Once developed, the projects will attach artistic and production talents from both Singapore and Taiwan.
Virginia Lim, chief content officer, MediaCorp, said: “Joining hands with Mission International, one of the most influential companies in the Chinese entertainment industry, enables us to continue creating fresh, compelling content that resonates with audiences in Singapore and the region. We are excited to embark on this partnership and look forward to making waves in the regional drama scene and potentially discover the next Asian superstar.”
Angie Chai, chair and CEO of Mission International, added: “With Singapore’s connectivity and global hub status, we look forward to working with Mediacorp as our strategic partner. Through this partnership, we aim to bring together each other’s passion and expertise in storytelling to create quality Chinese shows and hopefully, unearth the next big star in Asia.”
Meanwhile, the three winners of MediaCorp and the Taiwan Creative Content Agency (TAICCA) In the Name of Love regional writing competition, who each won a S$10,000 ($7,400) development grant, will work with MediaCorp to further develop their scripts, it was revealed at the ATF.
The competition invited scriptwriters to submit their original concepts for a Chinese drama series about life and the various facets of love, including but not limited to romantic love. Of the 178 entries received, the three winners were “My Ghost, My Love,” which depicts an author’s romantic encounter with a ghost; “Lives at Stake,” which follows a young delinquent’s struggles with life and death as an emergency medical technician; and “Tune Into You,” a story about a theater artist who is unexpectedly saved from the brink of suicide by love ballads.
MediaCorp will announce which of the three scripts it intends to select for production in due course.
