Mnet (www.mnetamerica.com), the first and leading national, 24/7 English-language television network in the U.S. for all things Asian cool, has taken the hottest line-up of original shows inspired by Asian entertainment to the next level with its 2012-13 programming slate. The network’s new programming includes the original series Angry Little Asian Girl, where animation gets an Asian American attitude. Also, YTF unites the biggest YouTube sensations, and Kollaboration takes U.S. cities by storm, scouring the nation for the hottest talent. The line-up was unveiled as the network celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month this May with a series of announcements, including a new content everywhere initiative.
These three new shows join returning original favorites Short Notice, which is launching a film festival tied to season three; Beats Per Mnet (BPM), covering the world of Asian Pop culture; and the daily K-pop music show, Hello Pop!.
“As our programming strategy evolves, we have been able to present original series that exemplifies our passion to bring the best of Asian pop culture to America,” said Ted Kim, acting president & CEO of Mnet. “It is stimulating to watch our new original programming join forces with the previously successful series, further expanding our reach to millennials that love all things Asian cool.”
