This is not any typical mistress story.
"The Second Wife" tackles relationships in a diversified family setting, something which exists in real life.
How does a second wife deal with the the children of the first wife? How do half-siblings deal with each other? These are just some of the questions that this Star Creatives show aims to address.
This marks Bea Alonzo's return to primetime. Here, she plays the role of the second wife of Ian Venercaion while Iza Calzado plays the first.
In an interview after the story conference for "The Second Wife" today, June 22, Bea shared her excitement over the project because for one, she will be working with majority of the cast for the first time.
As for the mature take on the theme, Bea assures that it will mainly reflect real-life situations.
"Kung paano ie-execute ni Direk Jerry [Sineneng] mas real, more than daring. Hindi siya campy. I guess kung totoo naman 'yung pag-uusapan, totoo 'yung pag-eexecute, siguro open na rin 'yung minds ng audience right now," she explained.
Iza on the other hand, supported Bea's answer by saying, "Because it's definitely something that happens in the society. It is a bold theme, but it's not something as taboo, so I think tatanggapin naman ito ng ating audience."
As for Ian Veneracion, who starred in the 2015 remake of "Pangako Sa'Yo" and the upcoming film "The Achy Breaky Hearts," the project is exciting since he has always wanted to work with Bea.
"Tired but happy. Excited! I've always been saying before na gusto kong makatrabaho si Bea and now its happening. Kami ni Iza matagal na kaming magkatrabaho," he said.
Bea also shared that parts of the story will be shot out of the country.
"Magsu-shoot kami sa ibang bansa ni Mr. Ian Veneracion so 'di ko pa pwedeng sabihin kung saan pero excited kasi makakakita tayo ng ibang lugar," she enthused.
As for the campy scenes that the audience always see in mature projects, Bea said, "Siguro iibahin, hindi 'yung usual thing na nakikita natin sa TV."
Iza agreed by saying, "'Yun ang gusto sanang gawin ng 'The Second Wife,' na magpakita ng conflict without having to be very physical about it.
"There can be tension in scenes but without having to have na parang sabunutan or kaya sampalan lagi. Pero tingnan natin kung saan tayo dadalhin ng storyang 'to."
"Pero definitely I think both characters are very mature beings and parehong subtle at hindi campy talaga. 'Yun ang gusto talagang ma-achieve ng soap."
"The Second Wife" also stars Enchong Dee, Julia Barretto, Vin Abrenica, Hannah Vito, JK Labajo, Irma Adlawan, and Tirso Cruz III. This will be directed by Jerry Sineneng.
Bea also stars in a movie with Gerald Anderson, "How To Be Yours," under Star Cinema, coming soon in cinemas.
