SINGAPORE – Jack Neo’s Diam Diam Era films have been picked up by Netflix, with the first of the two-part series hitting the streaming service on May 28 and the second part on August 8.

The Diam Diam Era films, starring Mark Lee, Richie Koh and Danny Lee, are themselves part of director Neo’s Long Long Time Ago series, which are historic dramatic comedies set in Singapore’s post-independence years.

We didn’t like the Diam Diam Era movies – read our review for part one here, and second part here – but apparently they’re popular enough to stream on Netflix.

Netflix had already integrated Singaporean content for its Asian markets. Last year the streamer has released over 100 classic Singapore movies and TV shows which include Growing Up, Phua Chu Kang Pte Ltd, The Unbeatables, Ilo Ilo and 12 Storeys.

Other Jack Neo Movies on Netflix include films from its I Not Stupid and Ah Boys To Men series.
