ABS-CBN’s new streaming service iWant marks its launch Nov. 17 with a slew of original shows and movies.
Viewers who are anticipating the much-hyped film “Glorious,” whose trailer has earned more than 14 million views in less than a week, will finally get to see the sensual scenes and romantic May-December love affair of Glory (Angel Aquino) and Niko (Tony Labrusca).
iWant also reboots an iconic TV show created by Chito Roño with “Spirits Reawaken,” which will follow the adventures of six teenagers who have supernatural powers and are tasked to protect the earth from the threat of an alien invasion. The cast includes Grae Fernandez, Kira Balinger, Jairus Aquino, Bugoy Cariño, Patrick Quiroz, and Chantal Videla in the lead.
The 10-episode anthology series “Alamat Ng Ano,” meanwhile, will tickle the imagination and funny bone of viewers as it tackles the origin of ordinary things in an absurd and humorous way. Narrated by a talky barangay tanod (Jobert Austria) and his trusty sidekick (Nonong Ballinan), it stars Maymay Entrata, Kisses Delavin, Donny Pangilinan, and Melai Cantiveros.
iWant’s exciting line-up of original content also includes the gore-horror film “Ma,” which revolves around a kid named Samuel (Kyle Espiritu), whose inner evil is awakened when he is forced to sacrifice a life to revive his dead mother (Glydel Mercado).
Fashion and travel vlogger Laureen Uy also makes a splash on iWant in “Laureen On A Budget,” where she challenges herself to pull off chic outfits or to redecorate a room without breaking the bank.
Showbiz insiders MOR 101.9 DJ Jhai Ho, “TV Patrol” entertainment reporter MJ Felipe, and online sweetheart and television headwriter Darla Sauler also get together every Friday night to discuss and confirm the hottest showbiz topics live in “IKR (I Know Right?!).”
Aside from this month’s line-up of content, iWant will also introduce more new, original titles that will exclusively stream on the platform, including a special digital show for “Star Hunt” that will feature promising Filipino talents.
iWant’s extensive library of regularly updated content also includes ABS-CBN shows, films, restored movie classics, fastcut versions of currently airing Kapamilya teleseryes, and Asianovelas, including the back-to-back streaming of “Meteor Garden” China and its original Taiwanese production.
