Antoinette Jadaone shared that the upcoming series of James Reid and MOMOLAND's Nancy titled Soulmate Project will be different from the other projects she directed before.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, the director relayed that the show will follow a K-drama or US series format.
“Hindi siya teleserye. It’s a series because it’s 13 episodes. It’s not like how we do teleseryes na you do it per script every day, with a weekly script," she stated.
Aside from directing the series, she is also writing the script which for her is an entirely different experience. “It’s more my kind of process. I write the whole series na tapos na, unlike in teleseryes na hindi mo alam kung kailan siya matatapos," she said.
Antoinette admitted that writing Soulmate Project has been more challenging. “There is more control sa kung ano ang mangyayari sa bawat character, sa story. But also, mas mahirap siya, kasi I realize it’s not the same as writing a film script, a screenplay. It’s different, it’s harder to write a series pala. Pero since andiyan na, gagalingan ko na lang!” she remarked.
Production for Soulmate Project will begin in 2020 and will be shot in South Korea and Philippines.
