29 July 2022 · News
‘Derek Kong, Private Detective’ is Malaysia’s first online radio drama, presented by Theatre of the Mind (TOTM) ), supported by the Cultural Economy Development Agency (Cendana), MyCreative Ventures and the Malaysian Creative Industry Stimulus Package (Prisma).
Featuring a star-studded cast headlined by actor-director Gavin Yap, the show which is produced by Anita Woo is set to premiere on July 31 on Spotify, Soundcloud, YouTube and Apple Podcasts.
Yap and Woo are part of the voiceover cast, together with Sharifah Amani, Douglas Lim, Radhi Khalid, Natasha Mohdali and Caleb Ng Kah Lok.
Derek Kong is written and created by Amina Jindani, with audio design by Tribe Audio, foley sounds by Muhammad Yunus and Yeop Mahidin, music courtesy of PremiumBeat.com and Envato Music, and jingles courtesy of 101 Studios.
Amina said she created the radio play to “avoid becoming bored” during the two-year Movement Control Order (MCO) during Covid-19.
Derek Kong tells the story of a detective based in TTDI who works alone and solves cases by fantasising that he is a character in a 1950s noir drama.
