South Korea’s CJ ENM Hong Kong has struck a deal to remake one of its scripted series in Taiwan, following success with shows such as Mum, Don’t Do That and The Amazing Grace of Σ.
The conglomerate has partnered with Central Motion Pictures Corporation (CMPC) and Deepwaters Digital Support Inc. to co-produce an island-culture-based scripted series in Kinmen in 2023, which will be spported by Taiwan Creative Content Agency (TAICCA).
Details of the show are scant but CJ ENM said it is scheduled to start production in the second half of 2023 and will have “the top global creator leaders joining forces to remake a popular CJ ENM IP in Taiwan and present them to a global audience.”
Michael Jung, MD of CJ ENM Hong Kong, said: “CJ ENM Hong Kong has been actively expanding our local language productions for the global streaming audience in recent years.
“We are very encouraged by the warm reception towards our first two Taiwan-collaborated Mandarin-scripted original series Mum, Don’t Do That and The Amazing Grace of Σ, which premiered this year. Hence, we are delighted to continue our venture into Mandarin-language original content with another great collaboration in Taiwan in 2023.
“With the collaboration of top-notch production talents from Korea and Taiwan, we aim to raise the bar of quality drama content and production. We are looking forward to working on a new, amazing production based on CJ ENM’s IP, and localizing the adaptation with Kinmen’s unique island culture.”
