Singapore– HBO Asia’s first comedy drama series, Sent will be making its debut across Asia on Sunday, September 17, 2017, exclusively on HBO. The eight-episode half-hour series will premiere with double back-to-back episodes at 9pm (SIN) with two new episodes premiering on subsequent Sundays at the same time, culminating with two back-to-back episodes on October 8, 2017. Sent will also be streaming on HBO GO and will be available on HBO On Demand.
Filmed entirely on location and set in Singapore, Sent, tells the story of Jay Bunani (played by Haresh Tilani), an unremarkable and meek financial compliance officer whose only way of coping with the stresses of life is to draft searing and eye-wateringly honest emails to anyone who aggravates him. This backfires one fateful day and his drafts folder full of hundreds of these “hot letters” are accidentally sent out, turning Jay into an Internet sensation overnight – and not the good kind. While also juggling the pressures of a failed engagement and keeping everything a secret from his parents, Jay has no choice but to turn to an old college friend, Max Wong (played by Alan Wong) for help, the only person who sees Jay’s predicament as an opportunity for Jay to dream a little bigger. Set in the world of memes, GIFs and hashtags, Jay’s journey of self-discovery is further set in motion when an unexpected job opportunity with the country’s leading restauranteur and slightly-shady business man, Zacheus Lee (played by Adrian Pang), leads him down an unexpected road to finally turning his life around.
