Single/Single,” Cinema One’s first breakthrough series starring Kapamilya stars Shaina Magdayao and Matteo Guidicelli returns for a second season on May 15 at 10PM on Cinema One.
At the media launch held on April 21 at Restaurant 9501 in ABS-CBN, the cast shared that season 2 promises leveled-up entertainment and relevance that will appeal to the millennial generation, without losing the comedy and kilig vibes that fans loved in season 1.
“Single/Single,” Cinema One and The Philippine Star’s first project, is the cable channel’s first TV series that focuses on issues ranging from quarter-life crises to relationship dilemmas in a digital world. The series combines engaging comedy with relevant messaging targeted to the urban singles coping with the demanding lifestyle of a more complicated world.
Season 2 will continue to combine the power of cable and print media to talk to Filipino millennials about how to cope as a single individual in an entertaining format. After each episode on Cinema One, an in-depth discussion about “how to adult” will be provided in the Philippine Star’s Business Lifestyle section by wealth management expert and inspirational speaker, Francis Kong.
For this season, online media will play a vital role in sparking conversation among millennials and engaging them as episodes will eventually be made available via PhilstarTV.com.
Returning to the series are veteran actress Cherie Gil who plays Matteo’s single mom, award-winning Cinema One Originals actress Anna Luna as Shaina’s career-driven buddy, and theater actor Brian Sy as Shaina’s gay friend.
“Single/Single” is directed by international award-winning independent cinema director Pepe Diokno, written by Palanca winner Lilit Reyes, and produced by Bianca Balbuena, who recently joined the prestigious Berlinale Talents panel.
The new season will air every Sunday at 10PM with replays on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9PM.
