/ 07:27 PM February 01, 2017

Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific (DNAP) on Wednesday announced the inclusion of Filipino content in their Discovery Networks’ 2017 lineup to cater to the diverse viewership in Southeast Asia.

In its 16 new local productions from Southeast Asia, three were commissioned from the Philippines.

Viewers will soon be able to watch three Pinoy shows—“You Have Been Warned Asia,” “Worst Vacation Ever,” and “The Kings” across Discovery Networks channels.

“In 2017, we are taking the lead and investing in more local content than ever before, bolstering our flagship channels and broadening the appeal for the millennial generation,” Discovery Southeast Asia’s Director of Content Curation, Rohit Tharani said in a statement.

“We are well positioned to take risks and be experimental with the content we are curating across platforms. This presents a unique opportunity to deepen our connection with existing and new audiences across Southeast Asia,” he added.

Fronted by science enthusiasts Ramon Bautista, Jun Sabayton, Lourd De Veyra, Ra Rivera and Angel Rivero, “You Have Been Warned Asia” deconstructs the science behind the experiments and exactly why it shouldn’t be attempted at home.

“Worst Vacation Ever” follows Filipino celebrity brothers KC and Troy Montero as the duo boldly relives the worst and most unbelievable holiday anecdotes to ever grace the internet.

“The Kings,” will take the viewers to the intimate and inspirational journey into the relationship of businessman, car connoisseur and transgender woman Angelina Mead King and her model-host wife Joey Mead King. It will be shown in TLC, DNAP’s travel and lifestyle channel.

DNAP said that the tab of local productions further boosts its commitment to progress the in-market growth opportunities while “delivering local, compelling stories that uncover the insights into the people, cultures, and passions points of the region through the lens of larger than life characters and adaptable formats.”

Other Filipino talents who have been given exposure in several DNAP shows were singers Karylle Padilla-Yuzon, Christian Bautista, among others.
