TV Drama Screenings Festival: ABS-CBN Corporation


The Philippines’ ABS-CBN Corporation is highlighting two new offerings for global buyers in the TV Drama Screenings Festival, including Dirty Linen.

Dirty Linen is a thriller that “tackles poverty and inequality and does not shy away from portraying horrific acts that the powerful and wealthy feel privileged to carry out against ordinary people,” says Pia Bacungan-Laurel, department head for international sales and distribution.

Bacungan-Laurel continues, “We’re very proud to tell this story together with such fantastic actors, including the first Filipino Volpi Cup winner, John Arcilla, and Golden Globe and BAFTA nominee Dolly de Leon.”

2 Good 2 Be True, meanwhile, is a romance series with 70 episodes available focused on the love story between Eloy and Ali. “2 Good 2 Be True was one of our most successful projects in 2022,” Bacungan-Laurel says. “It dominated online viewership in the Philippines for 26 straight weeks. With its highly entertaining story, viewers get to enjoy a good mix of romance, drama, comedy and light action.”
