MIPCOM Cannes is considered the largest content market in the world. This makes the premiere of the six-part series another milestone for the ABS-CBN as it brings the newest drama series to an international audience.
Directed by Dan Villegas and Irene Villamor, Cattleya Killer is a six-part series under ABS-CBN about a “son of a cop who cracked an old serial killer becomes the prime suspect when a copycat emerges.”
“I was very happy. Very, very happy. Overwhelming, kasi ang tagal ko ng hindi umaarte. Namimiss ko na makipag-sabak sa playground namin, sa set. And yeah, I’m back so I’m very, very happy to be given the opportunity again by ABS-CBN,” Arjo previously told PUSH in an interview.
Arjo also shared the difference between Aga Muhlach’s 1996 film of the same name and the series.
“Well, practically, it’s the same story, same personality, same everything. I think the only difference that we have is just that the twists and stories have modernized. And also, obviously ako po. I can’t do what tito Aga did… I can only try to do my best,” he said.
It also features a stellar cast including Jake Cuenca, Christopher de Leon, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Ricky Davao, Nonie Buencamino, Jane Oineza, and Ria Atayde, among others.
