The Jade Elephant TV Series Set To Shine

An action-packed drama, shot in Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and Singapore hits the small screen in August. The Jade Elephant is set to throw the spotlight on Cambodia when it is broadcast across Asia in a five-part mini-series.

The epic adventure story of love and ambition is being billed as the biggest telemovie of 2014 and marks the Kingdom’s first international TV co-production between CTN Cambodia, Khmer Mekong Films and MediaCorp Singapore.

The much-anticipated series sees Singaporean star Elvin Ng take on the role of successful but troubled architect Sam Lee. Lee comes to Siem Reap to oversee the construction of a luxury hotel only to discover a priceless, jade elephant with magical powers buried below the site.

The leading lady – and Lee’s love interest – is played by Khmer TV actress Lida Duch. Matthew Robinson, of KMF, is the producer and Tom Som directs.

The Jade Elephant runs daily on CTN from Aug. 18 to 22 at 7pm. There will be a full movie repeat shown on Aug. 24 at 8am.
