Netflix promotes its global push. At the company’s first showcase in Asia, the streams presented a collection of new original series and films from Japan, Taiwan, Thailand and South Korea.
The projects – comprising a Pacific Rim anime series and an Altered Carbon anime feature – connect to one hundred new and recurring originals in eight countries in Asia until 2019, because Netflix increases its investment in Asian stories and narrators. Netflix’s first depression in space included crime thriller Sacred Games (in India), anime series Devilman Crybaby (in Japan) and different comedies Busted! (in Korea) the past year.
In addition to the new projects, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings announced the second season renewal of Kingdom at the end of the day. The series, which will start streaming on January 25, follows the death of a royal death and the development of a strange plague.
“Asia is home to the world’s major creative centers that produce some of the most compelling films and series today, says Ted Sarandos, chieftain of Netflix.” Netflix beauty is that we can never be seen before stories from South Korea, Thailand, Japan, India, Taiwan or anywhere else and connects them easily to people across Asia and the world. More than half of the Asian content times seen on Netflix this year are seen outside the region, so we are convinced that our upcoming slash of Asian productions will find fans at home and abroad. “
