After the engaging story of My Only Hope comes a whole new chapter of Your Song Presents, the remake of the 80's movie ‘Underage’.
Matt Evans and Melissa Ricks were last seen in the teleserye Iisa Pa Lamang with Claudine Barretto and Gabby Concepcion. And now, they are back in the limelight as they star the highly-anticipated TV version of Underage which will start on March 1.
Together with Melissa Ricks and Matt Evans are Empress Shuck, Lauren Young, Valene Montenegro, AJ Perez, Rafael Rosell, William Lorenzo and Sylvia Sanchez who will all give life to important roles in the story.
Since the feel of the original Underage movie is quite sexy, the young stars will be taking on mature roles in their new drama mini-series. However, they clarified that the TV version will not be as sexy as the original film.
"This is different. Magpapakita kami ng konting skin. This is another step na naman. Kung baga inuunti unti na namin 'yung paggawa ng more mature roles. We're kids anymore na rin. We're still teenagers but we're going into the transition of becoming adults na. May ilang 'sensitive scenes' dito kaya 'yun ang pinaghahandaan namin," said Melissa.
Under the direction of Manny Palo, the story will revolve around three young sisters (Melissa, Empress and Lauren) who grew up in the province, about to face a whole new world. Melissa will portray the role of Celina, the most confident among the three siblings. Empress breathes life to the character of Cecilia, the toughest of the three and Lauren plays the role of Corazon, the frail man-hater. As they bump with new people, their real journey begins.
Your Song Presents Underage will be the initial offering of ABS-CBN’s Your Song Presents which will feature the adaptations of some well-loved Pinoy teen flicks from the 80's.
Underage was released by Regal Films in 1980 and was considered to be the launch pad of Dina Bonnevie, Snooky Serna, and Maricel Soriano as young-adult actresses. This was originally directed by Joey Gosiengfiao with story and screenplay by Toto Belano.
Don’t miss Your Song Presents Underage as it premieres on March 1 on ABS-CBN after ASAP’09.
