Singapore-based Beach House Pictures is adding two creatives to its team, with the appointments of Roger Cheng (pictured, left) as content and business development director and Mashizan Masjum (right), who will act as series producer on a slate of programs.
In Cheng’s newly created role, he will be tasked with building relationships with new and existing partners in Asia. He will also develop content for different media platforms in multiple languages and provide on-going editorial support as an executive producer.
He comes to Beach House from Discovery Networks Asia, where he oversaw more than 250 hours of programming. Prior to that, he was in news production for Reuters, the BBC and Al Jazeera.
Masjum will series produce the company’s recently greenlit slate of programming for AETN, National Geographic Channel, and Discovery Channel. Recently based in New York City, he brings over 15 years of factual TV production experience to the job, having worked on shows for National Geographic Channel, Optomen USA, and KPI.
“The production scene in Asia is undergoing an exciting phase this moment, and I’m delighted to bring the skills and experiences I’ve acquired in the U.S. to Beach House Pictures,” said Masjum.
“We are thrilled to have two such experienced talents joining our team; they will be major assets to our creative team and they are arriving at just the right time to help us through our growth spurt,” added BHP managing director Jocelyn Little.
