A REALITY series about the fight against dengue may soon be popping up on computer screens.

The Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources plans to commission at least eight episodes on the virus and Singapore's efforts to contain it.

Each episode, which will last around five minutes, will star National Environment Agency (NEA) officers at the forefront of the fight.

Filming is expected to start this month and to be completed by August. The ministry said it will share the videos through its Facebook page and other social media platforms.
