E!’s first ever original Malaysian miniseries, Facing Up To Fazura has made a comeback this November, every Sunday at 10PM on E! (Astro Channel 712). After a highly successful season one that resonated well with audiences in Malaysia, E! – the pop culture powerhouse of NBCUniversal International Networks – will premiere six thirty-minute new episodes of Facing Up To Fazura, which stars Malaysian actress, singer, host and entrepreneur Nur Fazura.
“E! has always believed in giving our audience exclusive access into the private and public worlds of celebrities both in Hollywood and Asia. With all of the incredible things that have been going on with Fazura’s career in the past few months, we knew that there would be a lot of great material for us to work with in a second season. Plus, the audience’s reaction to Season One was outstanding, with very high ratings, so the decision to do another season seemed obvious,” said Scott Mackenzie, VP, Channels, Asia, NBCUniversal International Networks.
This season, Fazura continues to confront the labels placed on her, challenges the public’s perception of the Fazura they think they know, and rewrites society’s norms of how women should behave. Since the first season of Facing Up To Fazura, her profile has also grown immensely including recognition in the region – raising the possibility of heading to new and far places where new opportunities lie.
2015 is proving to be an eventful year for Fazura, especially with her “Best Actress” win at the 2015 Malaysian Film Festival. In addition, her “Best Supporting Actress” nomination made her the first Malaysian ever to be nominated in two categories in the prestigious award.
With her acting career reaching new heights, Fazura has even set her sights on Tinseltown as she lands an audition for a Hollywood film. She also heads into the studio to record with a rock band to prove that she is no one trick pony or one hit wonder.
Other highlights this season include the launch of her new collection at Kuala Lumpur (KL) Fashion Week, as well as her 32nd birthday celebrations and her travels across the region visiting socialite, industry and celebrity friends. Can she juggle her showbiz career, passion projects and personal life all at once? Will she crack under the pressure during her audition in Hollywood?
