[6 Feb. 2019] Smart is giving everyone all the feels this Valentine season as it debuts ‘FindHer,’ its first online series that premieres on YouTube on Feb. 9, Saturday.
Produced by Smart in partnership with Epicmedia and Bent & Buzz, the seven-part romantic-comedy online series revolves around three individuals who contend with the complexities of love in a time of smartphones and dating apps.
Smart dropped the ‘FindHer’ teaser last week, sending netizens abuzz over the quintessential dilemma of modern-day dating: Is love online? The first five episodes will be available on Feb.9, while the final two episodes will break on Feb.14, Valentine’s Day.

“Over the years, Smart has worked with amazing creative teams to produce heartwarming stories for our ads and other online content. ‘FindHer’ marks a milestone for us as we push our storytelling further in a series format – with a theme that is relevant to today’s generation,” said Carlo S.
