Singapore, 29 April 2020:
Bomanbridge Media, a Singapore-based content distribution and production agency is proud to bring GAMERZ, originally the world’s first live Esports reality series, to Thailand. GMM Grammy, one of Thai media’s largest conglomerate entertainment companies will be producing the localised Thai version to stem the next generation of Esports superstars in Asia.
The Thai version of this international format ‘GAMERZ’ involves a talent mix of 10 celebrities and gamers who move into the Gamerz House where they will, with professional help, be drilled to maximize their abilities. These talents are tested daily through both physical and gaming challenges, offering up those that succeed and those that fail. Anything can happen and no one is safe on their way towards the finale where five lucky winners will be awarded a grand cash prize.
“Esports, from Live events to Reality and Observational series, are exponentially growing year on year. We are really pleased to launch the SE Asian version in Thailand first, a truly creative and active production landscape. GMM has been incredibly professional to work with and we look forward to the audience and gaming communities response to this dynamic reality competition series”, said Sonia Fleck, CEO of Bomanbridge Media.
“This is a new era for the Gaming and TV Industry in Thailand and SE Asia as a whole. It is an exciting opportunity for our online creative hub “Zonn”, part of GMM Grammy’s esports strategy. GMM is very happy that it will launch ‘GAMERZ Thailand’ from Bomanbridge Media’s programming slate, and we are proud to have the first live Esports reality series locally produced in Thailand. The program offers fun, excitement, and importantly, a support to our new direction”, said Phawit Chitrakorn, Chief Executive Officer of GMM Music at GMM Grammy Public Company Limited.
The original LIVE series of GAMERZ was produced by Gamingzone Entertainment, and focuses on the game CS:GO. It was broadcast across the world LIVE on Twitch, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Mixer, Egg Network and Viafree with a slew of sponsors on board to support the launch.
Esports is a platform for competitive gaming which sees teams play selected video games against their opponents. It is a fast growing international experience with millions of fans and billions of dollars up for grabs. Over time, live events and streaming services have transformed casual gamers into serious stars who can bring in multi-figure earnings and substantial brand endorsements.
GAMERZ Thailand is set to air in the first half of 2020.
