NETFLIX ANNOUNCES "A TAIWANESE TALE OF TWO CITIES"

A new original series in collaboration with KBro and Good Image

September 20, Taipei - Netflix Inc., the world's leading internet entertainment service, has announced that it will be working with Taiwan's Kbro Media and Good Image production, led by Taiwanese filmmaker Nelson Yeh, to create a 20-episode Netflix original series called A Taiwanese Tale of Two Cities (working title). The series features cross-cultural differences and similarities between Taipei and the close-knit Taiwanese-American community in San Francisco.

Netflix, which now has over 104 million members across 190 countries, has been continuously investing in content from around the world. Apart from its successful collaboration with content creators from some 16 countries including Canada, Brazil, France, and Germany, Netflix has also started to work with Asian creators including original shows like Midnight Diner from Japan; and the highly-anticipated original TV series Kingdom and Love Alarm from South Korea .

A Taiwanese Tale of Two Cities will be directed by Nelson Yeh who was nominated Best Director by Asian Television Awards for La Grande Chaumiere Violette in 2016. He also directed Mad King of Taipei (2016) which received rave reviews at the Busan International Film Festival. Yeh has also created many Taiwanese series which received the Golden Bell awards over the years.

The series has also received a government grant from the Taiwan's Ministry of Culture supporting the show's portrayal of a Taiwanese story with a global perspective. The series features two women, a traditional chinese medicine practitioner in Taipei and a Taiwanese-American programmer in San Francisco, who swap homes and then follow their respective cultural odysseys in each city.

"A Taiwanese Tale of Two Cities with its universal appeal is more than just a collaboration with Netflix, it's an opportunity for Taiwan content creators on the world stage," said director Yeh.

Said John Derderian, Director of International Originals at Netflix, "We are excited about A Taiwanese Tale of Two Cities bringing the multi-cultural worlds of Taiwan and America to our 104 million members across 190 countries. This is a testament to how great stories travel."

A Taiwanese Tale of Two Cities will start filming late 2017.
