Viu’s commitment to Indonesia is not only to entertain, but also to build an ecosystem that supports the sustainability of the content industry in Indonesia. In bringing Indonesian talent and stories to the global stage, Viu’ers are Viu's top priority. The Watch Party is one of Viu’s innovative ways of bringing Viu’ers to enjoy the launch of a Viu Original. This initiative has become even more special as for tonight's Star Stealer Watch Party is supported by one of Viu’s valued partners, Coca-Cola. At #ViuNightwithCocaCola, Viuers can get closer, interact with casts, and participate in the exclusive watch party from the comfort of their own home accompanied with an iced cold Coca-Cola.

The series is based on an original concept by young Indonesian filmmakers Aaron Timothy Soeharto and Audry Dayes Wangko who were the winners of Viu Pitching Forum in Indonesia, which provided them with the opportunity to see their idea brought to life as a 10-episode Viu Original series. The story of Star Stealer follows the daughter of a recently bankrupted mall owner who finds herself waitressing at a bubble tea joint where she brings together an unlikely assortment of talented retail workers to form an underground organisation. Their mission is to make money by conducting a series of daring heists to steal items from celebrities and sell them on to the highest bidder.

The series will start streaming on September 30 on Viu’s mobile app. Download the app for free on the App Store or Google Play Store to watch, or catch it on selected smart TVs, as well as on the web at www.viu.com.
