Kicking off the second batch is the episode DyepNi starring newlyweds Jennica Garcia and Alwyn Uytingco. Written by pajama_addict, the story revolves around Nialla and Jeffrey, who meet while riding a jeepney, through the road to love isn't completely smooth.
During the press conference for the show, Alwyn talked about the experience of shooting with wife Jennica, saying that this held many firsts for them. They got to work together, and he got to work with Jennica's dad, Jigo Garcia.
“Technically speaking, mahirap siya. (it's quite hard.) You are doing a 5-day episode for two days of shoots. Yung arc of story medyo mahalaga kasi may time interval sa amin, so medyo iyon yung mahirap na part nag-high school ako, nag-college ako and later nag-work ako abroad. Mahirap in a sense, but in a way, more excitement and enjoyment yung naramdaman ko kasi katrabaho ko siya (Jennica),” he said.
(The arc of the story is very important because there is a time interval in our story, so it's quite challenging because there's a part when I'm in high school, then I'm in college, and later my character worked abroad. It's hard in a sense, but in a way, it's more exciting and I really enjoy it because I'm working with Jessica.)
“Masaya-masaya. Si Papa Jigo close na kami bago kami ikasal,” Alwyn added. (Very happy. Papa Jigo and I were close even before Jennica and I got married.)
"DyepNi" premiered Monday, October 20.
justbreathsofie’s Savage Casanova is the next miniseries, which will air on October 27, starring Edward Mendez and Ritz Azul.
The story is about a popular bachelor named Ivo, who is set to inherit a business. In order to drive away girls chasing him, he concocts an elaborate plan to make sure he won't be bothered by them again – but of course, he doesn't expect to fall in love.
For Ritz Azul, doing the episode was quite a challenge since she is used to doing only one genre at a time.
"Mas light eto pero may touch pa rin siya na pagka-drama and sexy. Actually sa mga nakikita ko sa mga lumabas na Wattpad Presents, eto yung pinakakaiba-sexy, drama, romance and comedy so apat siya," she said.
(This is light but it's still drama, sexy. Actually, from all that's come out on Wattpad Presents, this one is quite different – it's sexy, a drama, romance and comedy, so there are 4 genres.)
For week 3, Keired’s Fake Fiance will be brought to life on screen by Artista Academy scholars and real-life couple Sophie Albert and Vin Abrenica. In the story, Demi (Sophie) and Rafael (Vin) will join forces to stage their own engagement so their parents can’t marry. The question is, will the fake engagement become a real one?
For Sophie Albert, the chemistry between her and Vin is very important since this is the second show they will do together, the first being Never Say Goodbye, a TV series starring Nora Aunor.
“We were just getting know each other [then]. So ngayon (Now) we are really comfortable do it. All we have to think about is make our characters as interesting as possible and making our characters click… and these Wattpad stories are very light, very nakakakilig (thrilling), very happy. Hopefully we can do that,” she said.
Fake Fiance will air starting November 3.
