SINGAPORE - A freshly acquired unit of Singapore-listed Spackman Entertainment Group has clinched a 320-million-won (S$382,240) deal to supply production gear for a Netflix series, it said on Monday (Sept 18).

Frame Pictures, the South Korean entertainment production group's wholly owned subsidiary, will supply the camera systems and equipment for the online media giant's first Korean original production.

The Catalist-listed group bought Frame Pictures in March 2017 in a deal involving 900 million won in cash and a 1.63 per cent stake in its Hong Kong-incorporated Spackman Media Group talent agency.

The Love Alarm drama series, which debuts in 2018, is the company's 14th project in 2017.
