Progresif Media premieres local limited-series Kitani

Turn the lights off, grab your popcorn, and get ready for the exclusive premiere of the first episode of the zombie-apocalypse themed series, Kitani by popular Bruneian YouTuber Syafi Halim, on the Progresif YouTube channel at 8pm on Friday.

The TV series follows the lives of siblings Nazurah and Ilyas as they try to stay alive while under the constant threat of aggressive opportunists, ‘The Cure’, who controls the street in the day whilst the dead ‘Jangkits’ roams at night. 

Their survival skills are put to a test when Ilyas starts an unlikely friendship with a member of The Cure. 

Made with the support of local content streaming platform, Progresif Media, the zombie-apocalypse themed series will have its exclusive one-time broadcast of the first episode aired for free on the Progresif YouTube channel.

Audiences will need to subscribe to Progresif Media in order to watch the remaining five episodes of the series. 

Syafi Halim began his content creation journey in 2019 producing vlogs and satirical comedy videos.

After gaining modest amounts of traction on his YouTube channel, Syafi’s first big brush with viral online fame came not long after, as the video producer wrote and directed a short film called Simpati, tackling the difficult topic of racism. 

Riding the wave of confidence and self-belief, Syafi’s content creation journey grew from strength to strength, eventually ending up in partnership with Progresif Media to produce Brunei’s first zombie apocalypse series, Kitani.

“Kitani is the first for Brunei and it’s just different from anything before, I really hope Bruneians come out to watch and I think they’ll love it,” said the 22-year-old director.

Produced by New Waves Films in collaboration with Progresif Media, Kitani is a six-episode series with English and Bruneian Malay as the spoken language.

The all-new Progresif Media launched last month can now be streamed on the web on or through your phone, desktop on any big screen. 

In addition to that, Progresif Media is also offering a promotional price for its subscription plans for only $5.99 which ends on 18 December 2021.
