During the visit, the Viu Malaysia team shared information on its operations and their part in building and empowering Malaysia’s economic growth along with its pool of talented creatives by showcasing their work to a broader audience globally. Among what was shared is that Viu produces up to 3 to 5 Viu Originals in a year.

This figure increases to 120, including the main and supporting cast members.

Besides engaging established players for its Viu Original dramas, Viu also focuses on building budding talents in Malaysia by working with aspiring screenwriters to get up-and-coming talents to submit their stories to the Viu Pitching Forum. The winning submission from the forum is then brought to life as a Viu Original drama, such as the upcoming Alter-Naratif.
