Netflix To Launch 106 Classic Singaporean Films & Series — Including 55 Mediacorp Shows — From August  

Expect lots of homegrown content under Netlix’s roof from Aug 1.

To celebrate National Day, Netflix will be launching 106 Singaporean films and series — including a multilingual medley of classic Mediacorp English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil productions — from Aug 1.

These homemade shows will be included to the streaming giant’s library progressively over the next three months. Familiar titles such as Phua Chu Kang Pte Ltd and the Tamil cop thriller Vettai will be available alongside more obscure offerings like the Eric Khoo flesh-fest In The Room, starring Lawrence Wong.

This is in addition to existing Singapore content on Netflix such as Sandi Tan’s documentary Shirkers, the ex-con dama A Yellow Bird, the Golden Horse-winning A Land Imagined and the horror Revenge of the Pontiank as well as a selection of Mediacorp serials (The Little Nyonya, The Dream Job, The Ultimatum).

They will be displayed in a dedicated ‘Singapore, Now Streaming’ row on the Netflix interface. They are further sub-categorised into ‘From a Local Lens’ (Shows by notable Singaporean directors); ‘Grandfather Stories’ (Singapore Nostalgia); ‘Kids Playing Marbles Upstairs’ (Singaporean Horror); ‘Bring Tissue Packet’ (Singaporean Drama — Movies and Series); ‘Best in Singapore, JB and some say Batam’ (Singaporan Comedy); ‘Will You Get a BTO With Me’ (Singaporean Romance); ‘Shared Over Rice’ (Singapore Family Shows); ‘Keep Ah Ma Occupied’ (Singapore Mandarin Shows); ‘Goes Well With Kacang Putih’ (Singaporean Movies); and ‘Last Time Primetime. Now Anytime’ (Singaporean TV Shows).

Here is the complete list of homegrown movies and series scheduled to launch in the next three months.
