SINGAPORE (Sept 18): Spackman Entertainment Group announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Frame Pictures, has won a contract to supply camera systems and equipment for Netflix’s first Korean original production – Love Alarm.

The production is a 12-episode drama series, which will premier in 2018 exclusively on Netflix.

This new project will be Frame Pictures’ 14th project for 2017, secured right after the camera equipment deal for Korean film, Deceptive Murder.

Charles Spackman, executive chairman and CEO of Spackman says, “Love Alarm adds to Frame Pictures’ strong pipeline of projects for the second half of FY2017. Moreover, the foray into the growing online media arena with a global leader in streaming content underscores Frame Pictures’ capability to secure top-quality projects.”
