IMPRESSIVE ang quality at credentials ng mga pinoprodyus na digital series and movies ng iWant.PH, huh! Just last month ay nakapaglabas sila ng star-studded digital movie na ‘Love Lockdown’ na shinoot ng mga artista habang naka-quarantine. Sila-sila na mismo ang nag-set up at maganda ang kinalabasan ng bonggang collaboration na ito. Inilabas na rin nila ang ‘Malaya’ na pinagbibidahan nina Lovi Poe at Zanjoe Marudo. Kinunan ang pelikula sa Southern Italy at ngayo’y mapapanood na rin sa TFC.
Sa dami ng bad vibes na balita ngayon, sure kami na naghahanap kayo ng ‘feel-good’ content to watch. Awat na muna sa foreign series at pagtuunan din natin ng pansin ang ilan sa mga iWant Original Digital Series na magpapangiti, magpapaisip at magpapakilig sa inyo! Are you ready?
1. Call Me Tita
Starring: Cherie Pie Picache, Mylene Dizon, Joanna Ampil, Agot Isidro, Angelica Panganiban and Lorna Tolentino
Directed by: Andoy Ranay
“Call Me Tita” is an 8-episode comedy and drama limited series. Set in Manila at the present time, and inspired by the stories of Filipinas who are coming to terms with getting older, we enter the world of lifelong friends – RUTH, CELINE, FRIDA, MAYA, JOSA and her daughter, GABBI- how they grapple with the challenges of being middle-aged women and try to find meaning and purpose in the midst of uncertainty and menopause. Narrating the story is a mysterious female voice over who will carry us through the lives and challenges of each of our central characters. A typical day in the lives of these women is presented, and all seems fun and harmless enough—until the day ends with a devastating blow. It is revealed that our irreverent narrator is missing. Leading the pack to find her is her only daughter, GABBI, who unfortunately even as a child, had to be the adult in their strained relationship. As the Titas scramble to find their friend, layers of their lives will be peeled back—revealing that what is seen outside, is very different from what’s really happening behind closed doors. Friendships will be questioned, secrets will be revealed, alliances will change, and perceptions will be altered. The TItas who seem to have it all turn out to be the biggest messes. Each Tita is desperate to keep their secret in the dark. “Call Me Tita” is a love letter, not only to the city of Manila but also to the middle-aged women who make it so much more interesting. Emotional, funny, sharp-witted, thought-provoking, self-deprecating, self-questioning, but always rooted in truth.”
