This ambition is closing to realisation with the launch of sooka’s first Originals series, Love in Lockdown, as sooka continues its aim to produce more hyper-local content that resonate with mobile-first millennial audience. 

“sooka's main differentiator is its capability to deliver LIVE global and local sports events, and integrating local favourites suited to Malaysians’ viewing preferences such as local drama series and movies, and LIVE reality entertainment programmes. With a strong pipeline of sooka Originals slated to launch this year, audience will be able to enjoy greater content offering from sooka, tastefully curated with more local flavours that cater exclusively to Malaysians’ preferences, views, and touchpoints,” said Emarina Mohd Kamal, Head of Programming at sooka.

Love in Lockdown, directed by Mai Fernandez, tells the story of personal and family adversities at the face of the pandemic. Produced through a collaborative effort with a local production house, Pho Sumpro, the series will run for 10 episodes exclusively on sooka.

“The stories we want to tell through sooka Originals stems from our brand aspiration to be bold, visionary, and different; and what better way to turn this into a reality than working with strong local content partners who are excellent storytellers, and who understand what audiences look for in great, local content,” added Emarina.
