Masters of the Sea (TV series)

Masters of the Sea was a 1994 television drama series produced by the Television Corporation of Singapore (TCS), the predecessor of Mediacorp. It was the first full-length English drama series to be produced in Singapore.[1] The series starred Wong Li-Lin,[2] Ng Chin Han,[3] and Aziz Mustajab.[4]

Masters of the Sea was derided by some as "fairly disastrous"[5] and lasted only two seasons, with the second season titled Masters of the Sea: In Troubled Waters.[4] One of the criticisms was that it portrayed an elderly Peranakan woman wearing the wrong costumes and ornaments, and speaking the wrong phrases.[6] However, it was syndicated to Indonesian television, where it was shown localised into Indonesian.[1]
