Nur Fazura is set to make Malaysian television history as she is set to star in Facing Up To Fazura, a five part, 30 min Malaysian miniseries for E! – the pop culture powerhouse of NBC Universal International Television. Set to premiere across Asia on Sunday, 14 December 2014 at 10pm – Facing Up To Fazura is the first-ever E! miniseries to feature a Malaysian personality.
The sensational docudrama will offer viewers unprecedented access to this polarising personality’s life, loves, challenges, triumphs and joys in everyday life as a leading entertainment and fashion socialite in Malaysia and South East Asia. Throughout the series, viewers will be treated to an in-depth and unscripted look at the star’s often-controversial life on and off the camera.
“I never imagined that anyone would be interested to showcase my life, let alone have a whole series planned around me for E! I feel so blessed and humbled at the same time,” said Nur Fazura, “I have always been a private person so having a reality show does make me a little nervous. I am showing everyone my world and I really hope they enjoy what they see.”
The miniseries is part of NBC Universal International Television’s commitment to Asian productions and celebrity stories. It will also feature a host of cameos and guest appearances by many of Fazura’s famous friends and colleagues from the worlds of entertainment, film and fashion.
“E!’s success is driven by the exclusive access to celebrities and Facing up to Fazura is a perfect fit for our channel,” said Christine Fellowes, Managing Director, Universal Networks International, Asia-Pacific. “E! combines the best of Hollywood with the breakout stars from Asia and we are excited to build on our commitment to the local entertainment industry and shine the spotlight on this Malaysian artist and bring her to the global stage.”
E! has produced a number of local specials featuring top talents from the Malaysian showbiz industry, namely renowned actress Lisa Surihani, leading man Aaron Aziz and the upcoming E! News Asia Special: Yuna, which premieres 25 November, Tuesday at 10pm (MAL).
