London and Singapore-based indie doc prodco Make Productions has tapped Brad Cox as head of content and development to oversee the company’s Asian expansion.

The factual-focused company is in talks with strategic regional partners and will provide more details of these arrangements over the coming months.
Make Productions has appointed production vet Cox (pictured) to oversee this expansion. He will be based out of Singapore.
Cox has two decades of experience in the region, including work on Amazing Race Asia, Cashcab Asia, Football Asia and Asia’s Next Top Model. The executive has held network roles at ANTV- Indonesia and AETN-Singapore over the past few years and created a number of formats for local South East Asian markets.
This launch precedes the release of an original series from the company for HBO Asia and Star India. The Talwars: Behind Closed Doors is a murder mystery docuseries that looks at the double murder of a teenage girl and her family’s household servant in Noida, India.
“We are looking to bring a fresh approach to how large-scale productions are executed with the established networks here in SE Asia. Our aim is to put more value on the screen, where it matters most,” said Cox, in a statement.
