Warner Bros. Discovery, Taiwan Mobile, TAICCA Sign MOU

Warner Bros. Discovery, Taiwan Mobile and Taiwan Creative Content Agency have signed a multi-year memorandum of understanding to develop and distribute Taiwanese original content in domestic and international markets.

The MOU, signed ahead of next week’s TCCF event, combines the expertise and reach of the three companies to develop, produce and distribute local IP and content to local and global audiences. Specific details of upcoming projects from the MoU have not been announced.

WBD has produced several scripted and unscripted Taiwanese shows over the past five years for its networks and streaming services. Local HBO scripted originals include “The Teenage Psychic,” “Dream Rider,” “Trinity of Shadows,” “The World Between Us,” “Adventure of the Ring” and “Who’s by Your Side.” The streaming service in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan is HBO GO. In the factual and documentary space, WBD’s unscripted programs include the series “Beating Covid 19,” “Master Class” and “Taiwan Revealed,” which aired on various networks in Southeast Asia.

Taiwan Mobile has invested in more than 40 productions, including „Tears on Fire,” „Magician on the Skywalk” and „The Victim’s Game.” It previously partnered with WBD on the HBO Asia co-production “Workers,” which received nine nominations and four awards at the Golden Bell Awards in 2021.

Taiwan Mobile is behind the local streaming platform MyVideo, which features a mix of high-quality local movie and video content.

TAICCA was established by the Ministry of Culture to support creative content production by providing funding for co-production and investment in development projects and institutions.
Taiwan’s content industry has flourished in recent years with impressive ratings for various IP and film, television and music projects internationally – particularly in China, Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong and the Chinese-speaking territories of Southeast Asia.
