Netflix has tied-up with Taiwan’s Kbro Media and Good Image production to create a 20-episode Netflix original series. Tentatively titled A Taiwanese Tale of Two Cities, the series features cross-cultural differences & similarities between Taipei and the close-knit Taiwanese-American community in San Francisco. The series will start filming late 2017, and will be directed Nelson Yeh.

It will features two women, a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner in Taipei and a Taiwanese-American programmer in San Francisco, who swap homes and then follow their respective cultural odysseys in each city.

Netflix has been increasingly collaborating with content creators from across the globe – including Canada, Brazil, France, and Germany, Japan and South Korea.
