HEAVEN PERALEJO REPLACES BARBIE IMPERIAL OPPOSITE GINO ROQUE IN WETV’S NEW SERIES “PASABUY”
AS they say, love comes in the most unexpected of ways.
That is thestarting point for this new WeTV original romantic comedy series Pasabuy, centered on one of thebiggest lifestyle trends that emerged during the pandemic.
Actor Xian Lim does double duty on theproject, but this time behind the camera, as the writer and director for this certifiably nakakakiligshow. The series is slated to premiere on WeTV in late September.
The charismatic Gino Roque is the leading man in this delightful comedy. Cast to play his loveinterest in the show is up-and-coming actress Heaven Peralejo. The 21-year-old PBB alumni came onboard after the previously announced female lead star Barbie Imperial was releasedfrom the show due to personal issues.
HEAVEN PERALEJO & GINO ROQUE
Barbie had already taken part in pre-production activities –including announcements on social media, and the initial script-reading with Gino, Xian and the restof the cast – when the change was made.
That said, the addition of Heaven to the cast will add even more charisma to the already loveablecast. She just joined the team at the 10-day locked-in shoot of the eight-episode series in Batangas.
For its latest WeTV Original series, Pasabuy tells the story of two individuals who find themselvesstranded in the same place at the start of the lockdown. Anna (Peralejo) is a young executive whileJohn (Roque) is an artist. They meet at the community chatroom where you can order necessities“pasabuy.”
Friendship and possibly love blooms in what could be the most unromantic of settings as they try to power through life and a bevy of emotions to get through each day. The question is,when the pandemic ends and lives go back to normal, was any of it real?
Joining Gino and Heaven in the cast are Ella Cayabyab, MJ Cayabyab, Ralph Malibunas, and GailBanawis, Kim Perez, Tiktok sweetheart Nana Silayro, plus a special appearance by rock band I BelongTo The Zoo.
Pasabuy is a WeTV Original concept, co-produced by Forza Productions, that is writtenand directed by Xian Lim.
