After sorting out a couple of backroom details and passing the creative baton to Unitel Productions, TV5 resurrects its top rated weekly drama program WATTPAD PRESENTS.
With stories based on the largest web-based free sharing platform for both authors and readers – Wattpad. Today, it has become a minefield of some of the greatest stories ever told and with published books gaining millions and millions of reads (and fans), TV5 decided to venture into producing this stories into a mini series way back in 2014.
The very first Wattpad Presents story produced was Maevelanne’s “My Tag Boyfriend” which stars Jasmine Curtis Smith and Sam Concepcion. It aired for a week starting September 22, 2014.
Wattpad Presents also became the training ground for new TV5 talents Shaira Mae, Mark Neumann, Akihiro Blanco, Chanel Morales, Euula Caballero, Carl Guevarra, Sophie Albert, Ritz Azul, Vin Abrenica, Brett Jackson and many others.
The new WATTPAD PRESENTS will feature more popular titles and authors from varied genres like romcom, action and even romantic horror stories featured every Saturday beginning the 29th of April with a story called DESTINED.
DESTINED is written by Blue Maiden and it has a current total of 22.4M reads on Wattpad.
The story involves a love triangle that explores the eternal question – “Who do you choose – the one you love or the one that loves you?”
The premiere episode stars former theater actress SARAH CARLOS as Kayla, Chalk Magazine’s Hottest Male Celeb BEN ISAAC as Kean and indie actress turned mainstream KATE ALEJANDRINO as Krystal.
The premiere episode is directed by Jaime Habac, Jr. (I’m Drunk, I Love You)
