Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s much-awaited comeback teleserye “2 Good 2 Be True” is set to be shown first on Netflix!
ABS-CBN officially announced its partnership with Netflix to exclusively premiere the KathNiel starrer for 72 hours before the episodes stream on free and pay television, as reported by ABS-CBN News today, April 19.
Kathryn enthused over the announcement in an interview with the ABS-CBN News: “Super pleasant surprise. Noong tumawag si Tita Cory (Vidanes), sabi lang niya, ‘Kath, can I call? Because I want na sa amin mo unang marinig.’ Hindi ko naman in-expect na 'yun ang sasabihin niya kaya super na-excite kami lalo.”
Daniel is particularly excited about how differently they filmed the series, describing it as “film style” which he thinks would fit well with the brand of the streaming giant.
“Mas film style na 'yung show. Hindi lang siya basta,” he said. “Dati, 'yung mga serye kasi natin ‘pick pack’ lang, usap, dalawang camera, dalawang kinukuhanan tapos next sequence na tayo. Ngayon, para tayong pelikula. May three shots para sa isang eksena na iba-iba 'yung anggulo. Mas film 'yung feel nito. Film talaga 'yung pagkuha nitong serye ngayon. It’s much better. Sakto siya sa Netflix dahil siyempre kailangan nating lumebel sa kanila doon.”
Kathryn added, “Ito mas healthy and alam namin na kapag may eksena, hindi masyadong mamamadali and happy kami sa kakalabasan. I think important naman talaga to give quality projects, more importantly na nandito na sa Netflix. Ayaw naman natin din magpahuli and we want to keep improving 'yung ABS, 'yung quality ng mabibigay nating projects.”
Directed by Mae Cruz-Alviar, “2 Good 2 Be True” is a romantic-comedy series centered on Eloy (Daniel), a “mambubudol na may puso” who keeps crossing paths with Ali (Kathryn), a hardworking medical professional.
Joining the cast are TV heavyweights Ronaldo Valdez, Gloria Diaz, Irma Adlawan, Gelli de Belen, Romnick Sarmenta, Cris Villanueva, and Smokey Manaloto. It also stars Pamu Pamorada, Matt Evans, Jenny Miller, Yves Flores, Alyssa Muhlach, Gillian Vicencio, and Bianca de Vera.
The show marks KathNiel’s TV comeback since their last team-up in the 2017 fantasy series “La Luna Sangre.”
So mark your calendars as “2 Good 2 Be True” premieres on May 13 on Netflix, and on May 16 on free TV.
