‘IT’S NOT ABOUT ME’: NANCY BINAY FAVORS ABS-CBN FRANCHISE RENEWAL DESPITE DIFFERENCES WITH NETWORK

MANILA, Philippines – Sen. Nancy Binay on Tuesday said she would vote for
the renewal of franchise of broadcast giant ABS-CBN if it reaches the
Senate.

This was despite her past issues against the network.
Binay, whose family members were embattled by a nationwide coverage on
corruption allegations against them, believes they were not fairly treated
by the network.
However, the senator said the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise is not about
her.
“It’s not about me. Naiintindihan ko din naman iyong mga reklamo against
ABS-CBN but mas mahalaga iyong freedom to information and access to
information,” Binay said.
“Kapag nawala itong ABS-CBN, malaking dagok iyon sa access natin to
information. At siyempre iniisip din natin iyong mawawalan ng trabaho,” she
also said.


BACK-TO-BACK SERIES FOR JULIA BARRETTO

MANILA — Julia Barretto’s latest film “Block Z” is still in theaters, but
already, the actress is gearing up for a packed year with back-to-back
series in the pipeline.
Barretto, 22, was introduced Tuesday as the star of an upcoming show from
RGE Drama Unit, the group behind the ongoing afternoon drama “Pamilya Ko”
and the 2019 daytime series “Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit.”
“Welcome to RGE Drama Unit, Julia Barretto!” went the caption of a photo on
the group’s Instagram page, where the actress is seen posing with the
creative team.
No details were yet revealed about the project. It was also not immediately
clear whether it would air as a traditional teleserye or be released as an
iWant offering, similar to Barretto’s other recently announced undertaking.
Barretto had just recently been announced as the star of “I Am U” with Tony
Labrusca. That series is produced by Dreamscape Entertainment, and will be
available to stream via iWant.


DANIEL PADILLA HANDA SAKALING ‘PAHIRAPAN’ SA BAGONG PELIKULA

Inihayag ni Daniel Padilla na handa siya sakaling siya naman ang pahirapan
ni Direk Cathy Garcia Molina para sa reunion movie nila kasama ang kaniyang
nobyang si Kathryn Bernardo.
Pinamagatang “After Forever” ang proyektong ididirek ni Molina at
pagbibidahan nina Padilla at Bernardo. Makakasama rin ng tatlo ang writer na
si Carmi Raymundo.
Huling nagkatrabaho ang apat sa box-office hit na “The Hows of Us” noong
2018.
“Siyempre handa naman kami na pahirapan at alam naman naming tatrabahuhin
namin ‘to. Okay lang dahil tiwala kami kay Direk Cathy,” sabi ni Padilla sa
panayam noong Lunes.
“Lahat nang maibibigay, ibibigay namin,” dagdag ng aktor.
Magugunitang inamin ni Bernardo na noong nakaraang taon ay nagtampo siya kay
Molina dahil sa mga pinagawa nito sa kaniya bilang paghahanda para sa
kaniyang karakter sa pelikulang “Hello, Love, Goodbye.”
Kinumpiska ang cellphone ni Bernardo at halos isang buwan din siyang hindi
kinausap ng co-stars para sa karakter.
Ayon naman kay Bernardo, sabik siyang makasama ulit si Padilla, lalo at wala
naman silang pinagsamahang serye o pelikula noong nakaraang taon.
“Finally babalik na kami on the big screen with Direk Cathy again and Ate
[Carmi] so ibang experience na naman ‘to,” aniya.
Hindi gaanong nagbigay sila Molina ng impormasyon ukol sa pelikula maliban
sa detalyeng ise-set ito sa San Francisco sa Amerika.
“Namili kami ng ibang countries pero San Francisco 'yong nagfi-fit doon sa
kuwento namin and nagkataon na itong si Padilla, pakiramdam niya talaga para
siya doon,” sabi ng direktor.
Magsisimula ngayong Pebrero ang shooting ng pelikula, na nakatakdang
ipalabas sa gitna ng taon.
