iflix’s Studio2:15 has worked with Macam Yes Studios, the team behind DanKhoo Productions to recently debut their first Malaysian short-form original, Cupid Co.
You can stream the six-part dramatic series and download for free exclusively on iflix.
Cupid Co. tells the tale of a cupid named Tim who, against the laws of heaven, makes a human, Michelle, fall in love with him. Stuck with the decision to let love run its course or adhere to the strict rules that cupids must abide by, Tim faces the consequences of his actions, navigating life, love, and mistakes with his best-friend and colleague, Bruce, by his side.
As a pillar of the company’s local content and short form strategy, iflix solicited tenders from local YouTube content creators for an original mini-series earlier this year.
“We are proud to have Cupid Co. premiere as an iflix Original and we are grateful and excited for the opportunity to share our creative visions on a bigger stage by collaborating with Studio2:15. Working with iflix has enabled us to get another step closer to our audiences and fans,” said Dan Khoo, Macam Yes Studios Founder.
Written and directed by Malaysian YouTube veterans, Brian Lee and Ernest Ng, with Dan Khoo as Co-director and Executive Producer, Cupid Co. stars Michael Lean (Kael) as Tim, Michelle Leong as Michelle, Dennis Yin as Bruce, Amanda Ang as Director Evans, Tanesh as Eugene, and Ernest Ng as Matt.
