‘Fazura’ set as E!’s First Malaysian Miniseries

HONG KONG – E!, the pop culture channel of NBCUniversal International Television, is to produce its first locally-made mini-series from Malaysia.

Docudrama, “Facing Up To Fazura” will give viewers an in-depth and unscripted look at entertainment diva and socialite Nur Fazura Sharifuddin’s often-controversial life on and off the camera.

Developed and produced by Matchbox Asia, “Facing Up To Fazura” begins production in Malaysia later this month and will go to air in mid-December. The 5-part 30 minute series is executive produced by Karen Wiggins, who also produced E!’s first local Filipino series “It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez.”

“E! combines the best of Hollywood with the breakout stars from Asia and we are excited to build on our commitment to the local entertainment industry and shine the spotlight on this Malaysian artist and bring her to the global stage,” said Christine Fellowes, Managing Director, Universal Networks International, Asia-Pacific. “E!’s success is driven by the exclusive access to celebrities and ‘Facing up to Fazura’ is a perfect fit for our channel.”

E! has produced local specials featuring top Malaysian showbiz talent, including actress Lisa Surihani, leading man Aaron Aziz and the upcoming E! News Asia Special: Yuna, which premieres Nov. 25 and is also produced by Matchbox Asia.
