The Sacred Riana to star in Fremantle scripted horror series

Fremantle has joined forces with Indonesia’s Wahana Kreator Nusantara on a scripted horror anthology called The Sacred Riana: Bedtime Stories. The series will be the first of several joint projects.

Bedtime Stories stars Indonesian illusionist The Sacred Riana, who achieved widespread fame with her unnerving magical act on Asia’s Got Talent. It is described as “an English-language, Asian horror anthology series set around the continent and inspired by folklore and urban legends”. Each self-contained, stand-alone episode has a unique cast and storyline, delivering Asian horror to a worldwide audience. The show will also feature The Sacred Riana’s illusions.

Chris Oliver-Taylor, CEO, Asia Pacific said: “The Sacred Riana: Bedtime Stories is an outstanding addition to Fremantle’s global drama slate. The fact that we are developing an international drama led by an Indonesian star such as The Sacred Riana, shows how our industry is changing and great content can come from all corners of the world.”
