After winning Favorite Foreign TV Actor and Actress in the recent Face of the Year Awards in Vietnam, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla are set to conquer Myanmar with the acquisition of “La Luna Sangre” by MKCS Global as well as Latin America with the acquisition of “She’s Dating the Gangster” by Spanish-language movie channel Cinelatino.
Through a distribution deal signed by ABS-CBN with MKCS Global, four teleserye titles that also include “And I Love You So,” “Born For You,” and “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” season 2 are on its way to Myanmar’s biggest FTV channels, MWD and MRTV 4.
MKCS Global and ABS-CBN have started doing business in 2011. Since then, the two have been partners in providing quality Filipino content to Burmese audiences. Some ABS-CBN dramas that already aired in Myanmar were “Born For You,” “Broken Vows,” “Brothers” season 1, “Be My Lady,” and “All of Me.”
Meanwhile, aside from “She’s Dating the Gangster,” other Star Cinema movies namely “Unexpectedly Yours,” “Four Sisters and a Wedding,” “Bride for Rent,” “Always Be My Maybe,” and “Extra Service” will be available throughout Latin America, as well as the United States and Canada, via their cable, satellite, and IPTV services with ABS-CBN’s deal with Cinelatino.
“We are certainly proud of this win early on this year and our goal will always be to continuously provide high-caliber programs and movies with cast and storylines that appeal to various cultures. We are certain that this will also boost our continuing efforts to introduce new talents to the global stage.” said Macie Imperial, ABS-CBN’s VP for Integrated Acquisitions and International Sales and Distribution.
Championing the business of storytelling for 65 years, ABS-CBN has succeeded in growing its international business and has now sold over 40,000 hours of content worldwide.
“With the success of our dramas, we are very optimistic that we can penetrate more markets that have not been previously tapped,” added Macie.
