With the official introduction of the cast of the upcoming youth romance film Connected, ABS-CBN TV Production head Lauren Dyogi said he is excited to introduce the debut project of Star Magic Studios this year.
“We’re actually very proud of our simple movie, but with a big heart. Kung alam niyo po, early part of last year we had PBB Season 9 Connect and we have 18 alumni and six of those members of that batch of housemates were able to be part of this movie and we’re very proud. This is the first movie of Star Magic Studios,” he shared.
The Pinoy Big Brother alumni members that are part of the Connected cast are Andi Abaya, Kobie Brown, Gail Banawis, Ralph Malibunas, Amanda Zamora, Chico Alicaya, and Richard Juan.
During the event, direk Lauren also gave thanks to Connected director Theodore Boborol for working hard on the film.
“And we’re very grateful to direk Ted (Boborol) for being generous of his time and talent and energy para gabayan yung ating mga bagong mga artista. So, with this small project of ours na maraming magandang mensahe tungkol sa kabataan, sa pag-ibig, sa magulang, we’re hoping that people will appreciate this project that we have,” he said.
