There’s nothing but love and laughter and aswang in VIVA Films and blockbuster director Darryl Yap’s new romantic comedy film, ANG MANANANGGAL NA NAHAHATI ANG PUSO

Starring two of the most in demand young stars of today, Aubrey Caraan and Marco Gallo. ANG MANANANGGAL NA NAHAHATI ANG PUSO is about a college student named Giuseppe ( Marco Gallo ) who went to a small barrio to research for his thesis about the mythical Filipino creatures called “aswang”. There, he meets the eccentric barrio girl Giniper ( Aubrey Caraan ) who takes the opportunity to help Giuseppe with his research. With Giniper’s help, Giuseppe will not just learn about mythical creatures in the barrio, but he will also experience enchanting encounters with different people. Also starring in the movie are comedians and viral YouTube vloggers Chad Kinis, Lassy Marquez, and MC Calaquian collectively known as the Beks Batallion, who play the roles of Gudong, Gingging and Gimo respectively; and Teresa Loyzaga as Guinta.

Piolo Pascual Joins TV5’s Niña Niño

TV5’s comedy-drama series Niña Niño has become a household favorite and is reaching a wider national audience since it premiered in April 2021. The show’s growing following has hit a record-breaking 5.0 percent in TV ratings despite strong competition from other programs in the same time slot.

Marking this showbiz milestone and as a way of saying thank you to our Kapatid viewers, Piolo Pascual, the country’s ultimate heartthrob, will be joining the Niña Niño cast as the indefatigable Mayor of Sitio Sta. Ynez starting October 25. He will come in as a new elected official whose domain include Sitio Sta Ynez, where this quick-witted and down to earth drama is being played out. He is going to play the role of Mayor Christopher Charles Juarez, a young and ambitious mayor who has his heart set on serving the people of Sitio Sta Ynez in his first term in office.

Cignal TV and TV5 President & CEO, Robert P. Galang underscored the wide public acceptance of Niño and Niña as a measure of how TV5 has hit the right tune in its prime-time programming. He shared, “We are grateful for those viewers who continually anticipate our shows. We wouldn’t be able to achieve such high ratings without their support for Niña Niño and we hope that they will enjoy this great treat we have in store for them.”

With Piolo Pascual on board, the show’s writers, John Bedia and Lawrence Nicodemus, are cooking up more ingenious plot lines for a compelling portrayal of Mayor Charles on Niña Niño. As Mayor Charles, Piolo will have to wrestle with his political clan’s long tradition in local politics and face challenges both as a leader and as a man of conflicting personalities.

Catch Piolo Pascual with Maja Salvador and Noel Comia Jr. starting October 25 in TV5’s Niña Niño, the series that teaches us that while there is life, there is still hope. Co-produced by Cignal Entertainment and CS Studios and directed by award-winning director Thop Nazareno, Niña Niño airs every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 7:15pm, after Sing Galing and before FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano on TV5.

LIMITED EDITION: A Different Kind of Everlasting Love

Once upon a time, three fine gentlemen named Jethro, Arnold and Mario, figure in a different kind of love, complete with its many saccharine trappings, weep-triggering tribulations and promise of happily ever after which are all in “Limited Edition.”

Limited Edition” is a romantic drama about finding one’s elusive and everlasting love with a love triangle story arc that gives it more kilig, heartstrings pull, and a fairy-tale like conclusion of who ends up with who.

“What makes him lovable is his innocence and simplicity,” says Jomari Angeles about Mario. “Not all of us are born with the right knowledge about life and love right away. He is a hopeless romantic and pag pag nakuha na ang loob niya or pagna-inlove na siya bibigay niya ang lahat sa kanyang partner.”

Andrew Gan, on being Jethro enthuses: “The most challenging part about being him is how to feel like him, to live in his shoes, and give justice to that feeling of falling in love with another young man. I want to be truthful lalo na pag naramdaman na niya na he is in love with Mario.”

“Well, his only fault is that he fell in love with Mario as well,” declares Ron Angeles who is Arnold. “I should say my being a pambansang third wheel is solidified and becomes a notch higher in this romantic BL drama. Ilalaban ko talaga yung feelings ko for Mario and my character has sincere and pure intentions.”

Director Jill Singson Urdaneta avers: “The process of love and loving, of being loved and in love, everyone who will give us their time and support, they will witness it in Limited Edition. The many discoveries about one’s self, insecurities exposed, that willingness to compromise and sacrifice, to make a relationship work because all relationships need a lot of work and commitment to make it work. All these and more, are in this drama about romantic connections and everlasting possibilities.”

Other cast members are Donna Cariaga (Chona, Mario’s best friend), Michelle Jhoie Ferraris: as Mamita, Mario's nanay nanayan Miss Iyah Mina: Ivory, Mamita's rival Miss Yayo Aguila: Jethro's mom, Miss Ruby Ruiz: Mario's mom Introducing are Anton Arceo, Aaron Concepcion, Celine Dorado and Luke Hembling.

Story by Bernard Umali, screen play written John Fontanos with Jill Singson Urdaneta as its director. Produced by world-famous shoe designer Jojo Bragais, with Michelle Jhoie Ferraris as co-producer.

Limited Edition” starts airing on October 2, 8pm, Saturday, on BRAGAIS TV.

BRAGAIS TV is an online channel for fun and entertainment for Filipinos.
