An Asian-based horror series has been announced around Indonesian illusionist The Sacred Riana who won Asia’s Got Talent and was a quarter-finalist in America’s Got Talent.
Her mostly-silent act, with echoes of The Ring, has made her the most-watched Got Talent act ever at over 70 million views. She first appeared in Indonesian talent show The Next Mentalist.
The Sacred Riana: Bedtime Stories, is an English-language, Asian horror anthology series set around the continent and inspired by folklore and urban legends.
The project is in development through Fremantle Asia Pacific with Indonesian-based Wahana Kreator Nusantara.
Chris Oliver-Taylor, CEO, Fremantle Asia Pacific said: “The Sacred Riana: Bedtime Stories is an outstanding addition to Fremantle’s global drama slate.
“The fact that we are developing an international drama for the world stage, led by an Indonesian superstar such as The Sacred Riana, just shows us all how our industry is changing and great content can come from all corners of the world.”
The Sacred Riana (real name Marie Antoinette Riana Graharani) will next appear in Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions.
