KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has been chosen to house the first Asian production centre for the popular stunt-challenge reality television programme Fear Factor.
The centre was set up this month by local media company Juita Viden to produce Fear Factor, which is licensed by Endemol, the world's largest format creator for television.
The centre will produce the Asian version of the show for Malaysia and other countries in the region.
Currently, it is shooting the first season for Malaysia, Indonesia and India.
