S.M.E Sitcom Cast Host Meet and Greet Session - Sitcom Seeks to Present Entrepreneur Realism in Comedy

The locally produced 13 episodes English sitcom, “Small Mission Enterprise “(S.M.E) Season II hosted a meet and greet session for public to interact with producer, director, and cast members earlier on 1st Sep 2013 at 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Bandar Utama.

Present at the meet and greet session were Wayne Lim, the Executive Producer of the sitcom, Douglas Lim, the Director, together with cast members Baki Zainal, Ash Nair, Alvin Wong, and Chelsia Ng.

Returning with a new season with its first episode airing on September 5 on NTV7 at 9.00pm, the original cast of the series will come into their roles to offer light-hearted take on what it takes to succeed as entrepreneur.
“We are presenting realism, in a comedy format, which showcases the characters and genuinely reflects the opportunities and the challenges that entrepreneurs face in the country. This show highlights the SME issues such as funding which nobody knows they exist, or there are misconceptions that it’s hard to get, or there are bureaucratic red tape hurdles, “said Wayne Lim, Executive Producer of the sitcom, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of MALAYSIA SME®.

He added, “Our involvement in production was spurred on by the fact that there are too many naysayers who say that a local sitcom addressing the entrepreneurship issues is not going to be well received. We have had positive feedback from viewers (both entrepreneurs & public), the network and the actors on how the sitcom in its first season, has touched them in some way or other. If we can help a small percentage of the close to 1,000,000 SMEs operating in Malaysia, we know that we have made a difference.”

Douglas Lim, the Director of the SME sitcom said, “As I worked on the first season of the sitcom, I picked up pointers which helped me when I decided to set up my own company. Just as I was inspired, I hope that more start-ups will learn and perhaps, have the courage to go it alone. It is all about small steps and the sitcom identifies the small steps that can turn into successes or failures.”
During the meet and greet session, members of the public had great fun playing a couple of fun games with Douglas and cast on stage, including ‘Durian Popiah Eating Competition’, ‘Charades’, and ‘Quiz on the Sitcom’ etc.
Following the road show in One Utama, Kuala Lumpur, the sitcom cast will be part of the roadshows as follows :-

6 to 8 September 2013 – Prangin Mall, Penang
13 to 15 September 2013 - Berjaya Megamall, Kuantan
20 to 22 September 2013 – KSL City Mall, Johor Bahru
