Switch, a romantic comedy series created by directors Nia Dinata and Pritagita Arianegara with a script written by the five winners from the 2017 Viu Female Story Festival, premiered on Aug. 15.

As reported by Antara news agency, Switch is Viu Original's first series on the Singapore-based video streaming service provider, which was created to enrich local content. 

"We have a plan to produce and develop more drama series for Viu Indonesia Original to entertain Viu fans, as well as develop talent in Indonesia and the creative industry in general, by providing the right platform to display their creativity," Vuclip president and COO Arun Prakash said in a press release. 

Switch tells the story of two friends whose lives are turned upside down when one night their souls are switched.
