IWant explores the pains and joys of falling in love as a single mom, the tortures of unrequited love and the experiences of Holocaust survivors who found home in the Philippines this January, as the streaming service jumpstarts another year with original offerings.
Users who are looking for highly relatable love stories laced with “hugot,” disappointment and bitterness can count on the new anthology series Ampalaya Chronicles, based on the popular spoken word poetry “Ampalaya Monologues,” with Khalil Ramos and Elisse Joson starring in its pilot episode streaming on 17 January.
Jodi Sta. Maria also brings on the “kilig” as a single mom who is struggling to choose between Ian Verenacion and Zanjoe Marudo in My Single Lady, which drops on 22 January. Regine Velasquez makes an intriguing cameo as Jodi’s adoptive mother and a Regine impersonator.
The platform also deep-dives into the stories of hope during a time of need in the docudrama The Last Manilaners, about the last living Jewish refugees in the Philippines. It will be available on the platform beginning on 27 January to coincide with the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust.
In one sitting, users can also enjoy the original series Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 3 starring Eugene Domingo with its movie cut version that is now streaming on iWant.
After releasing the second season of the acclaimed Bagman series, iWant is also gearing up to extend the adventures of the well-loved characters in the star-studded Call Me Tita and HIV advocacy series Mga Batang Poz, with their respective second seasons already in the works.
More original content also means new pairings and daring narratives for iWant, which is scheduled to release this year Julia Barretto and Tony Labrusca’s I AM U, Zanjoe Marudo and Lovi Poe’s I, Yassi Pressman and Sam Milby’s The Tapes and Diether Ocampo and Nathalie Hart’s Sunday Night Fever.
After dropping The Last Manilaners, iWant will also stream the award-winning biographical drama film Quezon’s Game about President Manuel L. Quezon’s rescue of over a thousand Jewish people seeking refuge from the Holocaust.
To enjoy these originals, more films and ABS-CBN shows, users may download the iWant app (App Store and Google Play) and register via Facebook, mobile or email and create an account.
