Mixed martial arts and a matchmaker who battles moms are part of the 2016 programming slate for Myx TV, the Asian-American focused cable and satellite channel.
With new original series “Mom vs. Matchmaker,” professional matchmaker Carmelia Ray (pictured) will go head-to-head with opinionated mothers as she finds the perfect mate for their single children. Produced by Go Button Media and Myx TV, the executive producers are Daniel Oron and Natasha Ryan for Go Button and Miguel Santos for Myx TV.
“‘Mom vs. Matchmaker’ challenges the old ‘mother knows best’ saying by testing a mother’s instinct against a professional matchmaker’s cutting-edge expertise,” said Santos, g.m. of Myx TV. “With a child’s future happiness on the line, the emotions run high, and Myx TV audiences will see the drama that goes into making the perfect match.”
Myx has also acquired “Simply K-Pop” and “After School Club,” which both focus on popular performers from the K-Pop genre, and “Super Fight League,” about Asia’s leading mixed martial arts organization.
In the coming year, Myx will also bring back series like dating show “Bagged,” cosplay design competition series “Call to Cosplay,” and extreme sports travel show “Planet X Sports.” It will also continue to air its martial arts movie block Movie So Good on Wednesdays.
