Singapore – The second instalment of the popular made-in-Asia original production, Every Singaporean Son (ESS), will make its TV premiere on the National Geographic Channel (NGC), almost two years after its inaugural season. Named Every Singaporean Son II: The Making of an Officer (ESS II), the six-part series comes after NGC renewed its collaboration with Singapore’s Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) to produce the TV adaptation that will follow the lives of full-time National Servicemen (NSFs) as they undergo the rigours of leadership training at the Officer Cadet School (OCS). 

The 21-part web-series was originally featured on the Cyberpioneer YouTube channel, drawing global audiences to Singapore-specific content. The NGC version of ESS II will be remade for TV by incorporating exclusive access to bring regional audiences behind-the-scenes and into the lives of full-time National Servicemen (NSFs) as they undergo trials, tribulations and celebrations during their 38-week journey at the famed Officer Cadet School (OCS).
