More Kapamilya shows are set to air in Thailand and Laos after JKN Global, the top content provider and channel operator in Thailand, bought over 290 hours of content from ABS-CBN at the recent MIPCOM, an annual trade event in France, where content producers, buyers, financiers, and distributors in the fields of entertainment and advertising from all over the world, can connect, make deals, and learn future trends in the industry.
The deal gave JKN Global the right to distribute six titles, which are “La Luna Sangre,” “Magpahanggang Wakas,” “The Promise of Forever,” “Till I Met You,” Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach’s lifestyle travel show “Pia’s Postcards”, and the longest-running primetime series on TV, “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”
ABS-CBN shows like “Got To Believe”, “The Legal Wife”, and “Bridges of Love” have already aired in Thailand and were well received by Thai viewers. The shows have become so popular that Kapamilya stars, Jericho Rosales, Maja Salvador, Kathryn Bernardo, and Daniel Padilla were invited to the biggest media event in Thailand last July, the JKN Diamond Blue Mega Showcase, an annual trade event of JKN Global.
ABS-CBN and JKN Global have been partners in providing quality Filipino content to Thai audiences since 2016. The two network giants of their respective countries are currently discussing possible coproduction opportunities.
ABS-CBN’s content, popular for its heartfelt Filipino stories, is made available across other territories through ABS-CBN International Distribution, recognized in the global arena as a reliable foreign content provider. It has been a premier source of high quality Filipino programming in over 50 territories all over the world and has sold over 40,000 hours of content worldwide. Living up to this recognition, ABS-CBN International Distribution commits to add to its line-up of high-caliber programs and movies with cast and storylines that appeal to various cultures.
