Following the massive success of Jollibee Studios’ entertainment offerings, the fast-food brand’s entertainment channel is coming up with yet another swoon-worthy Web series focusing on true love and perfect pairs.
Titled One True Pair, the online series feature relatable love stories that will make the viewers crave for more episodes, and definitely more Jollibee Perfect Pairs.
Jollibee brought together an all-star team of creatives, directors, and cast for the new series. Developed by creative agency Publicis Jimenez Basic and produced by Makina Productions, One True Pair is here to raise the bar in branded entertainment in the Philippines.
Here’s what viewers can expect from Jollibee Studios:
The first episode of this latest Jollibee series, titled Checklist, features acclaimed director JP Habac at the helm. Habac, who made his name with the 2017 indie sensation I’m Drunk, I Love You, brings wit and an affection for the rom-com genre to this episode.
It tells the story of Anna Lagman (Amanda Fernandez), a wedding planner whose perfectionist personality completely clashes against Gio Lorenzo (Luis DeGuzman), a seemingly clumsy and carefree young man, she often encounters in her clients’ weddings.
Gio never left a good impression on Anna, having ruined some of her carefully planned events, and when they are paired to plan his brother’s wedding together, friction arises—and sparks fly—between them.
“It’s the perfect set-up for a rom-com, with two characters who seem to be polar opposites but eventually find common ground,” Habac said.
“In this case, Anna’s heart softens when she sees how Gio actually makes her better.”
With the titular checklist serving as the episode’s structure, Checklist ticks all the boxes for rom-com fans.
Flying high on kilig.
Directed by Antoinette Jadaone, Fight or Flight tackles the budding romance between a flight attendant (Joanne Villablanca) and a kind passenger (Paco Villegas) on a flight from Singapore. The story brings to life the realities of long distance relationships and the struggles encountered to make a relationship work.
Jadaone, who certified her status as the country’s premier romance hit-maker with That Thing Called Tadhana, English Only, Please, and On the Wings of Love, returns with her first venture into commercial video with an incredibly relatable story for modern Pinoy couples who have to be separated by oceans as they pursue their dreams.
“This episode is a take on how love is a choice,” said Jadaone. “In the credits, we’ve included a line on how you can meet the perfect one for you by chance, but becoming a perfect pair by choice which just emphasizes love and relationships is indeed a choice that you have to make and commit to.”
Apart from the incredible direction of Habac and Jadaone and the beautiful performances of the cast, there are another group of stars in this digital series: Jollibee’s Chickenjoy Perfect Pairs.
At Jollibee, there is truly joy in finding the perfect pair to the country’s best-tasting fried chicken–Chickenjoy.
