“Cattleya Killer,” ABS-CBN’s new international project starring 2020 Asian Academy Creative Awards Best Actor Arjo Atayde, introduces a stellar ensemble that will make world-class Filipino talent shine brighter on the world stage.
Joining Arjo in the thriller series set for international release are critically acclaimed artists Christopher de Leon, Jake Cuenca, Jane Oineza, Ricky Davao, Nonie Buencamino, Ria Atayde, Ketchup Eusebio, Frances Makil, Rafa Siguion-Reyna, Jojit Lorenzo, and Zsa Zsa Padilla.
Arjo couldn’t help but gush about his co-actors saying, “It’s such a beautiful cast. I’m so happy to see everyone on board. I don’t need to explain further, but I’m just excited. Remember that I’m just one of the actors for this series and we’re going to do this together,” during the virtual story conference held recently.
Meanwhile, ABS-CBN International Production and Co-Production division head Ruel S. Bayani, also said that the team is lucky to have Christopher on board as he was part of the cast of the 1996 Star Cinema movie “Sa Aking Mga Kamay,” where “Cattleya Killer” was adapted from.
“We’re lucky that Boyet [Christopher] is here to join us dahil to me, wala ng mas inspiring pa to have Boyet on our set. To know na may nagdudugtong from the movie to this series, at sa bagong creative energy natin sa pagku-kwento nito.”
“We’re also joined by the most professional, most talented, and most creative people in the industry,” Direk Ruel added.
Directed by Dan Villegas, written by Dodo Dayao and executive produced by Ruel S. Bayani, “Cattleya Killer” will start production this February 2022 and will be released for international audiences as ABS-CBN continues its global march. The country’s leading content provider, ABS-CBN continues to forge new partnerships to promote Filipino stories and talent all over the world. “Cattleya Killer” follows “Almost Paradise,” the first American TV series filmed entirely in the Philippines, which ABS-CBN co-produced with Hollywood’s Electric Entertainment.
