Since I stay home when I’m not working outside, these days I spend more time watching shows on different platforms. WeTV is one of those platforms. I’m quite impressed by WeTV’s effort to put out WeTV Originals which tap up and coming local Filipino talents. There’s always a fun new series to look forward to.
So the newest addition to the roster is the WeTV Original Pasabuy. It’s a romantic comedy series now streaming for FREE on WeTV. New episodes drop every Friday at 7pm.
In this six-episode series, Gino Roque and Heaven Peralejo play two strangers who find themselves at the same resort just before the lockdown. John (Roque) is an aspiring musician trying to heal from a recent heartbreak. Anna (Peralejo) is a popular vlogger working on her latest video, while hiding her true feelings for her manager. When they find themselves stranded there when the borders are closed, they cross paths at the community chatroom while placing their orders for necessities “pasabuy.” Could love be in the books even under the most unromantic of settings? When the pandemic ends and lives go back to normal, will any of it be real?
Joining the cast are PBB Connect alumna Ella Cayabyab, Ralph Malibunas and Gail Banawis, all of whom add a whole lot of personality and character, pun intended, to the show. Bringing just the right touch of comedic flair are MJ Cayabyab as Anna’s energetic producer and bestie Ge, and Tiktok sweetheart Nana Silayro as the extra fabulosa Madame Minchin.
Adding to the feels of this charming series is the theme song Pansamantala, written and performed by I Belong To The Zoo. The popular band gave a special performance of the song during the recent press conference for the series.
The WeTV Original series Pasabuy is written and directed by Xian Lim, based on a WeTV Original concept. Download the WeTV app from App Store or Google Play to start watching! An annual VIP subscription is just P599.
