After working together on the Kapamilya series A Love to Last and on horror projects like Bliss and Ilawod, Iza Calzado said she is looking forward to being reunited with Ian Veneracion after almost three years for their first romantic comedy project called B&B: The Story of the Battle of Brody and Brandy, a digital series which is part of WeTV Philippines original lineup for 2021.
“We’ve never worked like this. It’s always been heavy. I play Brandy and Brody is going to be played by Ian Veneracion. Si Brandy ay isang woman na medyo jaded, yung parang hindi na talaga naniniwala na may darating pa, na may mga matitinong lalake pa kasi nga at her age, it’s either they’re taken o kaya fluid sila. Yung mga ganun. And then she runs this bed and breakfast na talagang it’s her life. Parang she’s dedicated her life to running this bed and breakfast and mahal niya pati yung mga guests niya, ganun. Suddenly this man comes into her life, si Brody. He’s charming, he’s around her age and he kind of sweeps her off her feet. Ganun. So we will put it at that. Pero marami pang mangyayari,” she shared during the WeTV Philippines media launch.
Her show is also being produced by Sanggre Productions, the production company she co-founded last year along with her Encantadia director Mark Reyes and co-stars Sunshine Dizon, Karylle, and Diana Zubiri.
“I would like honor direk Mark (Reyes), Karylle, and Shine (Dizon) who have been putting in so much work for this. Because I’m currently doing a series. I’ve been taping since June. So medyo hindi ganun kadami yung oras na maibigay ko so they’ve really been on top of this. I’m also very excited. Speaking of synergy I think that’s what we have in Sanggre Productions. We just flow and work together because we understand each other. Kumbaga anong kaya ng bandwidth mo, yung ganun. We’re also at that age na parang we’re not competing with one another. We work together because we have a company. Everyone has a stake. Yung parang we are a group,” she explained.
Brandy and Brody will be starting production soon and will start streaming online as part of the original series lineup of WeTV Philippines in 2021.
