Iflix Strikes Content Deal With Indonesia’s Screenplay Films

A series adaptation of popular 2015 Indonesian film “Magic Hour” is one of the first fruits of an expanding collaboration between Wicky Olindo’s Screenplay Films and pan-Asian streaming site iflix. The two companies have agreed to a multi-year arrangement for original productions, to be produced by Screenplay Films exclusively for iflix.

An eight-part adaptation of the romantic teen drama “Magic Hour” is now in post-production and will air on iflix from December. The movie’s twin leads, Dimas Anggara and Michelle Ziudith, two of Indonesia’s hottest young stars, have reprised their roles in the series.

“This strengthening of our collaboration with Screenplay Films is proof of iflix’s commitment [to service and experience]. Indonesia is Asia’s fastest-growing and most competitive television market,” said iflix co-founder and group CEO Mark Britt.

“We are eager to support iflix’s ambitious content strategy with compelling storytelling and high-value productions,” said Screenplay founder and COO Olindo. The company has produced titles including “Pesantren & Rock ‘n’ Roll,” “Love in Paris,” “London Love Story,” “I Love You From 38,000 Feet,” “Promise,” and “Jailangkung.”

Iflix is currently available to consumers in Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Brunei, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Myanmar, Vietnam, the Maldives, Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, Cambodia, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Nepal and Bangladesh.
