Remesh Kumar, Vice President of Content Creation Division, MediaCorp TV, said: “For “The Noose”, we were lucky to have a very fantastic cast and we have a group of writers who are really, really very good and you know “The Noose” is a satire and a parody of Singapore life. And to write something creatively and make a joke out of it – and Singaporeans enjoy that.”
