Hong Kong-based pan-regional digital service Viu (part of PCCW Media Group) is teaming with Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITVP) on an Asian remake of hit US drama Pretty Little Liars, which will be localised in Bahasa and filmed in Bali.
The series follows a group of four estranged undergraduates whose group had fallen apart when their former leader went missing. The girls come back together in the face of danger, when they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure known as "A", who threatens to expose their darkest secrets. Emil Heradi (Night Bus) directs.
The announcement follow’s Viu’s adaptation of Endemol Shine’s The Bridge, which saw the story setting move to the border of Malaysia and Singapore.
Andrew Zein, senior vice president, creative, format development and sales, WBITVP, said: "Viu is one of the market leaders in local storytelling, and we are excited to partner with them in transforming Pretty Little Liars into a South East Asian show that builds on the original, yet is also uniquely its own story, entertaining millions of people."
