Netflix’s latest Southeast Asia originals are about to drop, capping a year or more of effort that is part of the streamer’s bigger bolder plan for the region – to contribute to the growth of a broad, vibrant, inclusive and healthy production ecosystem that will boost quality and capacity on home ground in Asia.
