Grammy Award-winning rapper Lupe Fiasco and Hong Kong-based marketing and media executive Bonnie Chan Woo have teamed on a hybrid production company.

Based in both Hong Kong and Los Angeles, Studio SV is an entertainment studio that produces mainstream television programs, digital content and films for global viewers.

According to a release, the aim of the studio is to “foster cross-border collaboration and inclusivity” and to produce content with celebrities and influencers.

The studio’s debut project is Beat n Path, a docuseries that follows Fiasco (pictured) as he embarks on a cross-cultural journey across China. In the pilot series, Fiasco lives out his other passion – martial arts – as he practices with Kung Fu masters throughout China, while also taking the chance to explore the country’s flourishing hip-hop scene.

The prodco plans on producing a slate of at least 10 original titles over three to five years, starting with three titles planned for completion in 2018.

With its base in Hong Kong, the company remains open to copro opportunities which can leverage networks across the Asia-Pacific region.
