We, fellow fans at Hustle, wanted to learn more. So, we decided to go directly to the source: Trese writer and co-creator Budjette Tan.
Budjette, a senior creative at Lego now based in Denmark, took the time to walk us through his entire origin story. He recounts how the idea for Trese spawned from his time hosting a late-night radio show, and then evolved into a DIY-comic project with illustrator Kajo Baldisimo, his advertising colleague.

As for the upcoming Netflix show, Budjette can't say much, but he's happy to share how he and Kajo guided the acclaimed Filipino-American animator Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) through the extensive world they built.
In this episode, Budjette paints an optimistic picture of the future of Filipino stories and comics.
