Planet Homebuddies

Beijing-based entertainment company Mei Tian Mei Yu (Mei Tian) has reported that its new Web / TV sitcom Planet Homebuddies has amassed seven million viewers since launching in February on top China portals and online platforms Tudou, Youku, Baofeng, PPTV, iQiyi and SINA.

The six-part series that premiered during the Chinese New Year, takes a humorous look at the new trend among China’s white collar youth who choose to live and work at home. Based on a concept by President/CEO of Metan Development Group, Larry Namer, the series was developed and written as a TV/Web format for global audiences, marking the first time a China media company is using the internet to pilot domestic and global TV projects.
