Such is the premise of TV5′s upcoming suspense drama series JasMINE. It shows the other side of the glitz and glamor of showbiz life. Last week, at the recently-held bloggers conference organized by Vidanes Celebrity Marketing and TV5 at Goldilocks Main Office, Mandaluyong City, TV5 artists Jasmine Curtis, Matthew Padilla and Alwyn Uytingco expressed their excitement to be part of the Kapatid network’s intriguing Tuesday drama series JasMINE. Special thanks to Chris Diestro of Starmometer.com for inviting me in this event.
Ace Saatchi & Saatchi, commercial and film production expert Unitel and TV5 teams up for an exciting new suspense drama thriller – JasMINE. Blurring the line between fiction and reality, JasMINE the series is a self-titled nine part series which stars highly acclaimed actress and sought after celebrity endorser Jasmine Curtis-Smith. Far from being just Anne Curtis little sister, Jasmine has proven that she is one of the formidable actress of her generation and has gained respect in the industry of advertising and showbiz circles, proof of which is her Best Supporting Actress Award in Cinemalaya.
Witness this exclusive Kapatid Network princess as she portrays a fictional version of herself. The plot blurs reality and fiction as the young Curtis stars as her fictional self who like in real life is also an actress who after indulging on her “itch” to do indie films finally clinches the lead role in TV5′s (fictional) flagship series “Ur Loved.” As her road to mainstream grows steadily, she find adversities in all sides. There’s other TV actresses who aspires to get the break she gets, wishes to be paired with hot Kapatid hunk Alex Vergara (Vin Abrenica) and to top all this is she acquires a stalker who practically knows her every move.
The series maybe a suspense thriller but he has its light and kilig moments as the fictional Jasmine will be fought over by three dashing young men. Aside from her TV5 Actor Alex Vergara, there’s the young and rich suitor Miguel Asuncion (Gerard Sison) and the new PMA graduate assigned to her case – Inspector Ramon Ramirez (Matthew Padilla).
JasMINE also stars Alwyn Uytingco as showbiz blogger Wendell Bautista, Carlo Orosa the no-nonsense manager or Jasmine, Justine Peña is the loyal assistant Carly, Marvelous Alejo is Selina Pascual, Nicole Estrada is Sarah Mae, Cai Cortez is Mama Mia. Jelson Bay is Inspector Emilio Osorio, Meyanne Plamenio is Leila.
