Apart from co-production, Boat Rocker continues to explore opportunities to represent Asian content for global distribution. In addition to titles from Malaysia and Singapore that is currently part of the Boat Rocker catalogue, we have conﬁrmed representation of Miwoo Media, a Korean documentary production house specialised in inspirational content to raise awareness on social issues in developing countries.
Trends & Outlook 2021
“The pandemic-driven recession has had a signiﬁcant impact on our media industry. Advertising revenue is predicted to dip further in 2021 as the pandemic is not expected to end soon. With the economic shutdowns in many countries we will see linear broadcasters being cautious on acquisition of content. This pandemic has also accelerated the expansion of global streamers in Asia. Some services are launching earlier than their original plan, and others are focusing on investment in local production due to shortage of global content available from production delays.”
Boat Rocker will continue to focus on its factual and animation content distribution in Asia in 2021. This is an important year for Boat Rocker as we are launching 3 animated IPs in the global market including our ﬂagship title – Dino Ranch. We will focus on brand expansion in key Asian territories to help drive our toys and consumer products business.” Henry Or, SVP, Strategic Partnerships Asia

Our offering to Asian buyers spans most factual genres including travel and adventure, food, wildlife and natural history, home and design, and other lifestyle programming alongside our true crime content. On the scripted side, we have a strong slate of returning English language and international dramas and scripted formats with themes including crime, international espionage and political thrillers.
Trends & Outlook 2021
Buyers are looking for their usual mixture of local productions and big studio content to keep primetime eyeballs on screens. However, Covid-19 has caused production delays across the globe, so broadcasters are also looking for volume at a fair price to support gaps in their linear schedules and VOD platforms. Standalone VOD platforms are on the rise as studios and major tech companies drive towards a direct-to-consumer model. The proliferation and growth of local services throughout Asia means demand for content has never been higher for both SVOD and AVOD platforms – with the latter core to broadcasters’ overall offering, which is reﬂected in the deal terms being pushed by buyers.
Asia focus in 2021
Demand for premium quality, ready-to-go series is high and Cineﬂix is perfectly positioned to deliver on this with our incredibly diverse catalogue. We will continue to work closely with our regular clients and ensure their programming needs are met from our current slate and new content from our producer partners acquired throughout the year. Alongside this, we will be focused on building our client base across the new VOD platforms. From a scripted perspective we’ve had a lot of recent success off the back of shows like Tehran and Coroner, and we’re looking to grow our scripted brand in the region with existing dramas and the exciting series coming through our pipeline.
Top shows are… Coroner
Inspired by the best-selling series of books by M.R. Hall, Coroner is a characterdriven, procedural series about Dr. Jenny Cooper (Serinda Swan), a recently widowed, newly appointed coroner who investigates suspicious, unnatural or sudden deaths in Toronto. The show is a huge international success, airing globally on CBC, The CW Network, Channel 4, Sky Witness, and NBCUniversal International Networks. Episodes/Length: Seasons 1-3, 26x60 mins. Produced by Muse Entertainment, Back Alley Films, and Cineﬂix Studios for CBC, Canada.

Trends & Outlook 2021 First, we expect the further phenomenal growth in streaming video services, both SVOD and AVOD, to continue in 2021, without eroding the value of linear programming in traditional free and pay TV in Asia. Second, there will be more of the short, limited series due to restrictions in production activities under the new normal. Finally, we see more partnerships and co-production deals taking place among key players in the industry in order to produce quality content for speciﬁc platforms.” Roxanne J. Barcelona, Vice President, GMA Worldwide Division
The Lost Recipe
An anthology of thrilling stories that use a common visual storytelling device – a camera (drone, cellphone, CCTV, etc.) as the silent witnesses to tales of love and mystery.

Episodes/length: 4 series of 5x30 mins (Season 1)
I Can See You
Legal Wives A cultural drama about Ishmael, an upright Muslim man who marries three different women – the ﬁrst one, to fulﬁll his family duty; the second one, because of true love; and the third one, to save the honour of a friend’s daughter. Complications and conﬂicts arise and Ishmael faces the challenge to keep his family together and achieve harmony among his three wives. Episodes/length: 40x45 mins approx.
The First Nanny An aspirational story of an ordinary woman who gets to lead an extraordinary life as the nanny of the children of a widower Philippine Vice President who eventually becomes President by succession and election.
