KUALA LUMPUR: Local starlet Nur Fazura Sharifuddin will make history when she becomes the first Malaysian celebrity to star in a television series on international entertainment channel E!

The docudrama entitled 'Facing Up To Fazura' will give viewers an insight into the personal life of the star, who had been embroiled in various controversies in the past.

Matchbox Asia is directing and producing the drama. Production will begin later this month and is expected to be broadcast in December.
'Facing Up To Fazura’ is slated to be a five-part 30-minute series produced by Karen Wiggins, who also produced E!'s first local Filipino series ‘It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez.’

“E! combines the best of Hollywood with the breakout stars from Asia and we are excited to build on our commitment to the local entertainment industry and shine the spotlight on this Malaysian artist and bring her to the global stage," said managing director of Universal Networks International Asia-Pacific Christine Fellowes.

“E!'s success is driven by the exclusive access to celebrities and 'Facing Up To Fazura' is a perfect fit for our channel,” she added.

E! has produced local specials featuring top Malaysian showbiz talents like actress Lisa Surihani, actor Aaron Aziz and singer Yuna.

E! News Asia Special: Yuna, also produced by Matchbox Asia, premieres on November 25.
