As of early May 2016, an Indonesian TV station has a mermaid-centric soap opera running on TV, called "Mermaid in Love." (37 episodes and counting as of this post.)
A teen-age mermaid decides she wants to visit the human world to meet a boy whose picture she saw on a lost mobile phone app. [The mermaid world is boring to her, because (allegedly) it has only females.] With the help of a friend, she steals a magic pearl ring from a sea witch; when she wears the ring (and is dry), she has legs. However, if she remains dry too long, she suffers for it.
