ABS-CBN AT HALLO HALLO ENTERTAINMENT, IKAKASA NA ANG PAGHAHANAP SA MGA MIYEMBRO NG MNL48


Pormal ngang nilagdaan ng dalawang kampo ang partnership agreement kamakailan sa ELJ Communications Center Building ng Kapamilya Network sa Quezon City.

 

Dumalo sa signing sina ABS-CBN TV production head na si Laurenti Dyogi, chief finance officer na si Aldrin Cerrado, OIC for integrated acquisitions and international sales and distribution na si Cecilia “Macie” Imperial, business unit head Mercedita Gonzales, Hallo Hallo Entertainment chief executive officer na si Yasunari Okada at president na si Paulo Kurosawa.
 

“Dadalhin natin ang sikat na idol group format mula Japan papunta dito sa Manila. Sa Japan, ang tawag sa kanila ay AKB48. Pagdating dito Manila, hahanapin naman natin ang MNL 48. Naghahanap tayo ng talented Filipinos na magiging bahagi ng grupo. Isa ito sa pinakamalaki nating talent searches sa telebisyon para sa mga kababaihan,” paliwanag ni Dyogi.
 

“Maari itong maging bagong kabanata ng Philippine showbiz industry dahil iba ang sistema namin sa pagpili ng miyembro. Magiging kapanapanabik ito para sa mga sasali,” sabi ni Kurosawa.
 

“Masaya kami na makatrabaho ang ABS-CBN at ipalaganap pa ang Japan pop idol culture sa Pilipinas,” sabi ni Okada.
 

Ang MNL48 ang magiging Pinay counterpart ng phenomenal Japanese girl group na AKB48, isa sa pinakamatagumpay na musical acts sa mundo na may record sales na higit US$200 million sa Japan.
 

Malapit ng magsimula ang paghahanap para sa miyembro ng MNL48 ABS-CBN. Hindi lang sila mabibigyan ng pagkakataon ang mga mapipili na mapabilang sa next pop group phenomenon, makakalipad pa sila patungong Japan para personal na sanayin o i-train ng mga tao sa likod ng AKB48.

“THE GOOD SON” EARNS RAVE REVIEWS FROM ENTERTAINMENT WRITERS AND BLOGGERS


ABS-CBN’s newest primetime teleserye “The Good Son” starring rising teen star Joshua Garcia earned rave reviews from members of the entertainment press and bloggers who watched the special screening of its first three episodes recently.

 

“There’s no doubt ‘The Good Son’ will be loved and embraced (by viewers). The artists are excellent, the story telling a winner. Joshua Garcia is without a doubt the best young actor we have right now,” said Abante Tonite columnist Alwyn Ignacio.

 
“No scene is wasted by the teleserye’s actors…. ‘TGS’ is drama at its best! The teleserye brings together great veterans and young actors. They are all so excellent!” said Dominic Rea, entertainment columnist for Tiktik.
 

Aside from the performances, the writers also praised the series’ direction and story about brothers Joseph (Joshua), Obet (McCoy De Leon), Enzo (Jerome Ponce), and Calvin (Nash Aguas), who come from different families and search for the truth about their father’s sudden death.
 

“It would be the barometer by which soap operas are measured as it boasts of an ensemble acting, a very good dramatic narrative, and a story line which all of us can relate to. It gives one a ringside view of how families cope with death and infidelity,” said Alex Brosas of Manila Bulletin.
 

“It’s been so long since the last time we watched a drama series this great – so compelling, so well-directed, so-well acted, so brilliantly made and performed,” said Vinia Vivar, who writes for Bulgar, Pang-Masa, and People’s Journal Tonight.
 

Kata Adajar of blog Random Republika also remarked, “’The Good Son is more than just a showcase of brilliant acting, its strength lies in a really compelling story.”
 

The highly anticipated family drama also features this generation’s top teen actresses Loisa Andalio, Elisse Joson, and Alexa Ilacad, with seasoned stars Mylene Dizon, Eula Valdez, John Estrada, Ronnie Lazaro, Jeric Raval, Alex Medina, and Kathleen Hermoso. This is under the direction of Manny Palo and Andoy Ranay.
 

Don’t miss the unusual case of love for family in “The Good Son,” starting this Monday (Sep 25) after “La Luna Sangre.” For more information, go fb.com/dreamscapeph and follow @DreamscapePH on Twitter and Instagram.
 

THE ONE AND ONLY DIAMOND STAR MAKES TV COMEBACK VIA “MMK”


“When I read the script, I cried a lot,” said Maricel in an interview with “TV Patrol,” “The story is so moving and it really touches the heart. “
 

The Diamond Star added that she was also moved by the lesson the episode is trying to impart to its viewers, “Let us not be ashamed of who we are, what we are, and where we come from. We have nothing else but our own names that is why we should take good care of it.”
 

Maricel’s last “MMK” episode was aired 14 years ago and she was last seen by Kapamilyas in the movie “Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy” back in 2013.
 

In the episode, Maricel plays Guily. Ever since she adopted the little boy from her niece, Guily (Maricel) has always treated Jayson as her own. It did not take long for Jayson to find out the truth about his identity after he noticed he was using a surname different from his parents’.
 

After knowing that his biological mother was still alive, Jayson grew up longing to meet her. Being a child out of wedlock, Guily fully understood what he was going through, so one day, she accompanied him to his mother Chona (Dimples Romana). Jayson’s much awaited moment, however, did not happen how he pictured it to be.
 

What happened when Jayson finally came face-to-face with Chona? How did the encounter affect his life?
