Now we have proof of concept and we are creating the content buckets and narrowing down the genres we want to build,” the streaming platform’s global director of original programming, Mark Francis, said on the eve of the September premiere. Made by Malaysian studio Skop Productions for iflix, the telemovie fills the gap between action crime series KL Gangster Underworld seasons one (August 2018) and two (2020), which goes into production in November.
