Asia focus in 2017

The Asian businesses continue to be critical strategic assets in A+E’s global portfolio. In 2017, A+E Networks will redouble its attention to Asia, seeking strategic growth opportunities & partnerships in the region, as well as focusing on its robust slate of programming. This includes two highly anticipated scripted series, Six and Knightfall; the critically acclaimed and massive ratings-generating unscripted series 60 Days In; Emmy Award-winning Born This Way; and formats such as The New Wife, Seven Year Switch and Man vs. Child: Chef Showdown.

Top shows are... 
SIX

SIX™ is a contemporary military action drama inspired by real events faced by Special Forces SEAL Team Six, the unit best known for killing Osama Bin Laden. Intense and action-packed, SIX invites viewers to dive into the covert operations and dangerous lives of the SEALs and their conflicted loyalties between war and family.

Doomsday: 10 Ways the World Will End

66 million years ago a massive asteroid hit the earth and killed off the dinosaurs. What if this happened today? Depicted in graphic detail, each episode of this CGI-heavy series opens with an extreme catastrophe striking the planet. Using scientific data, experts examine the mechanics of these civili-sation-ending disasters and explore how — and for how long — mankind might survive in the aftermath.

Born This Way

Cameras follow seven young men and women with Down Syndrome as they explore building relationships, earning a living, and pursuing their dreams — all while defying society’s expectations. The series also gives voice to the parents, allowing them to share the joy and the challenges brought to their family as they help their children live independent lives.

Outlook 

"The exploding consumption of media on mobile devices and non-linear distribution platforms throughout Asia has opened new opportunities for both international programming brands and home grown content. In 2016, A+E Networks experienced signifi-cant growth in India with the launch of FYI™TV18 across DTH platforms. In Japan, the company expanded its partnership with Super Network/Tohokushisha and increased its stake in The History Channel Japan. Also in 2016, A+E Networks’ ground-breaking re-imagining of Roots through A+E Studios was a global success, especially in Asia where this epic miniseries earned record-breaking ratings in several territories.”
