iflix Global Director of Original Programming Mark Francis said: “Both iflix and Coconuts share a common passion for bringing unconventional, compelling and deeply relevant stories about Asia to our audiences. The series showcases real people and places overlooked or even shunned by traditional news media, taking an unfiltered and youth-oriented approach to news and subculture – offering a perspective on the region you don’t often get to see.”

Not only did we want to shed light on these untold people and phenomena, we also wanted our audience to care about them. It’s been tremendous to partner with iflix, and we can’t wait for the world to see this show.”
