Bangkok Breaking

Netflix is continuing its expansion into the international market by revealing its second Thai original series in the shape of the gripping, character-driven drama Bangkok Breaking.

The series, which is being directed by Kongkiat Komesiri, centres around the story of Wanchai, who moves to Bangkok to save his family from poverty. In a bid to find answers and serve justice, Wanchai joins a local ambulance foundation and, without warning, is pulled into the mysterious high-stakes world of the rescue services. Joining forces a determined female journalist, Wanchai embarks on a mission to unravel a city-wide conspiracy.

“Bangkok Breaking is a series that serves all tastes, with action, excitement, drama and romance, appealing to a wide audience across Asia and, I hope, internationally,” director Kongkiat Komesiri. “With the full support of Netflix we can realise our vision for this series; I am excited, honoured and incredibly proud to work with a global platform like Netflix. I’ve amassed over 20 years of experience in film making, collecting every technique for this moment, and today I have the opportunity to show that Thai content has what it takes to capture the interest of audiences around the world. I promise to give my absolute best to delight our audience.”

“I follow and enjoy many Netflix movies and series,” showrunner and executive producer Prabda Yoon said in a statement. “That’s why I am excited to work with Netflix directly, but what I’m most excited about is taking part in showcasing Thai talent and creativity on a global platform. The opportunity to work with so many skilled and experienced Thai people from the industry is really impressive; and Netflix partnering with Thai producers can only benefit our work and inspire the creative community.”

The action-thriller drama will be produced by Production Playground. Create Asia 360’s Rehan Malik and Clayton Fitts co-created the series and will executive produce.

All six episodes of Bangkok Breaking will premiere exclusively on Netflix in 2021 to its members in over 190 countries.

ZippBike Beverage Deliveries Are Back

Here is some good news to end the year… booze deliveries from ZippBike are back.

A workaround has been found and all you have to do is logon to your account at zippbile.com – or create a new one – apply for a ZIppBike Business Account and boom, you’re in.
