ONE Championship may be The Home Of Martial Arts, but AXN will be the home for the promotion’s upcoming ‘The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition.’
The organization recently announced that AXN will be the official broadcast partner for its martial arts rendition of the global hit reality show, which is scheduled to air in early 2021.
“I am thrilled to announce that we have named AXN the official broadcast partner of ‘The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition’ in Southeast Asia, bringing the compelling drama and nail-biting reality TV excitement of one of history’s greatest shows to millions of viewers all across the region,” said Sanchit Garg, Senior Vice President of Global Media Partnerships at ONE Championship.
“AXN is a network known for its top-rated dramas, blockbusters, reality TV, and original productions. I am also ecstatic to confirm six additional confirmed Free-to-Air partners to carry the show.”
Those half dozen additional partners include Mediacorp (Singapore), Abema (Japan), KompasTV (Indonesia), LINE TV (Thailand), TV5 Network (Philippines), and HTV (Vietnam).
Avani Bhanchawat, Vice President and Head of Revenue at KC Global Media Asia, which owns AXN, believes that ONE’s version of ‘The Apprentice’ will be as entertaining and unique as many of the network’s previous shows such as ‘The Amazing Race Asia,’ ‘The Apprentice Asia,’ ‘Asia’s Got Talent,’ ‘Cash Cab,’ and ‘The Contender Asia.’
“Our strategic partnership with ONE Championship enables audiences across the region to experience the high-stakes challenges for the first time,” Bhanachawat said.
“The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition adds to AXN’s stable of exclusive top-rated reality programs and ground-breaking original productions. Our partnership in this programme is a strong testament of AXN’s commitment to building and grooming the development of entrepreneurs with great physical and mental agility, to thrive in today’s business environment and raise the bar for business leadership.”
