Singapore – DIVA Universal has announced that it will be the exclusive regional channel to broadcast the International Emmy nominated reality-competition series, Supermodelme. The announcement comes as DIVA seals its partnership as the official female channel with one of Asia’s most prolific fashion events, the Asian Fashion Exchange, held in Singapore from May 13-19 May, 2013.
DIVA viewers will get to watch exclusive short format programmes featuring internationally renowned designers at the festival, as well as, the first viewing of the unscripted Supermodelme later in the year. Supermodelme is a multiplatform reality-competition series revolving around the lives of Asian models as they kickstart an international career in the cut-throat world of fashion, currently in its fourth season. Resident Judge and host, supermodel Lisa S will have E! Asia host, Dominic Lau, and Singapore-born, Thailand-based model and actress Ase Wang on the panel this season to mentor the models and prepare them for international stardom. Guest judge Jenny Shimizu, an American model and actress, will also provide industry tips and expert advice for the models. Additionally, the series will be available online and mobile platforms.
“Supermodelme and the Asian Fashion Exchange are two of the biggest brands associated with Asia’s fashion scene and DIVA viewers will be keen to get an insider’s look into Asia’s glamorous world of fashion,” says David Gunson, VP, SEA Channels, Universal Networks International, who secured the first-window rights of Supermodelme for the Asia region.
