Box Office
"
Food
is a huge part of the Singapore culture as well and
unscripted competition cooking
shows like Top Chef... Strangely enough,
reality game shows
that
don't need you to think at all
or to follow a plot, happen to be the most alluring on prime time television."
"
Censorship
is a considerable factor. All networks have to
screen content
to clear with local authorities before broadcast. As a regional network, we have to consider the nuances and meet the conditions of the entire region."
"The audience is more interested in
humor
and
light-hearted
,
easily digestible
content. Local
dramas
are a big hit, followed by
variety shows
. Production
budgets
aren't too fancy and are low key."
"The industry is headed towards shows that will complement the
digital realm
, with
crossover interactivity
. Heavily
ad funded shows
are here to stay too."
