Watching Globe Studios’ Ang Fraile is an experience that’s equal parts amusing, confusing, and thought-provoking. The two-part series, which premiered on Friday, July 30, is a satirical comedy set in a small Filipino town under Spanish rule.
In this episode of Rappler Talk Entertainment, we talk to series director RA Rivera and the fraile himself, comedian Jun Sabayton, about the project, what the series is poking fun at, and whether Filipinos have actually learned anything from history.
Catch the interview on Monday, August 2, at 1 pm by bookmarking this page or following Rappler on social media.
Ang Fraile is free to stream on Globe Studios’ YouTube channel. Its second episode is coming out next Friday, August 6. Ang Fraile stars Sabayton, John Lloyd Cruz, Joel Torre, Cherie Gil, and Ronnie Lazaro. – Rappler.com
