NEW YORK - Sept. 29, 2014 - PRLog -- Fashion One, the premier international fashion, entertainment and lifestyle television broadcaster, continues to cater for its Asian audiences with the localized addition to its original programming slate, Underwater Action: Chinese Models Edition (藍海尤物: 中文版). The Asian adaptation of the underwater modelling competition is a 6-episode series that follows 7 young, beautiful and determined Asian models fighting for a coveted spot in Mick Gleissner's Asian Underwater Calendar.

Following the 3-season success of Underwater Action, the only reality series featuring underwater models, the network brings the format to Asia and localizes the show in​ Mandarin. The current cycle is shot in one of the best diving destinations in the world, uncovering the talents of Asian models as they channel their inner mermaids. Headed by renowned underwater photographer, Mick Gleissner, be part of the excitement, drama & danger of daring underwater fashion shoots as the models take you all the way from training to modelling in some of the most breathtaking underwater shots. Adding to the excitement, Taiwanese veteran pop singer and actor Huang Pin Yuan makes a surprise appearance to sérénade our sirens.

Mick Gleissner has travelled around the globe, immortalizing the beauty of the underwater world through photography. Mick's revolutionary form of underwater photography has continuously captured the attention of international acclaimed media, including National Geographic. Among those that have featured his work are Elle, Maxim, Photo, Photographie, Seastar,​ Duiken's magazines, and The Daily Mail.

“Underwater fashion photography is 10 times the challenge of regular photography,” expresses noted underwater photographer Mick Gleissner, “For some shots, the model needed to stay underwater for more than 3 hours, so endurance and stamina are important factors for an underwater model to have.”

Underwater Action has become a phenomenal success and has been one of the most anticipated original programming of Fashion One. With its growing demand, we are bringing the only reality competition for underwater models to Asia through its Chinese Models Edition,” executive producer, Ashley Jordan adds, “a local production with an international appeal, giving exposure to Asia and its local models, reaffirms the commitment of the television network in promoting emerging talents from across the globe. We are looking forward into localizing the show into different formats across the world."

​ Underwater Action: Chinese Models Edition (藍海尤物: 中文版)premieres on October 3, Friday at 20:30 (GMT+8 for Asia / GMT+2 for some parts in Europe), exclusively on Fashion One and Fashion One HD. Check your cable operators for your local TV channel listing.
