Last Madame, starring Joanne Peh, won the award for Best Asian Drama at the Asia Contents Awards in October last year. The 2019 series beat out acclaimed shows such as Kingdom and Crash Landing On You to clinch the top honour.

Wet Season explores a complicated bond between a Mandarin teacher and her student. The film was selected as Singapore’s official entry for consideration at the Oscars earlier this year, and joins Chen’s film Ilo Ilo on the streamer.

A number of award-winning documentaries are also being introduced onto the platform. These include two docs by To Singapore, with Love director Tan Pin Pin: her 2017 film In Time To Come and her 2005 production Singapore Gaga.

Other documentary titles include The Skin We Wear, Butterfly Children, and The Negotiators.
