Television broadcasting company MTV Networks Inc.'s foray into drama production in Singapore has turned the spotlight on the city's expanding production capabilities. In partnership with local production house, Mega Media, MTV plans to produce a 14-episode drama series at a cost of S $2 million. While the deal is a coup for Singapore's Media Development Authority which is actively encouraging the production of export quality content, some would argue that it does not in any way signal a flowering of the local production scene.
