Warner Brothers very happy about TV5’s Pretty Little Liars
TV5 brings primetime viewing to new heights with the remake of the phenomenal Hollywood series Pretty Little Liars. The Philippines is the first country in the world to do an adaptation of the hit US show, and TV5 made it possible.
The show’s producer Warner Brothers (WB) reveals that several countries lined up to do a remake but the Philippines, through TV5, is the first one to succeed in buying the franchise. “TV5 has such incredible enthusiasm and a wonderful plan [for Pretty Little Liars]. Warner Brothers is very happy about this project,” says WB Creative Consultant James Kramer.
Kramer is in the country to work hand-in-hand with TV5 for the remake, and he is singing praises for the Kapatid Network. He has seen the works of TV5’s production team and describes it as “Hollywood level, with higher production values, beautiful lighting, elegant camera movement, and sharply polished dialogues.”
The WB creative consultant will be guiding TV5 from pre- to post-production, to make sure that the adaptation will be consistent with the original, while at the same time having a Filipino touch that local viewers can relate with.
