B&B: The Story of the Battle of Brody & Brandy is one of the 12 original titles in production of WeTV, as revealed by country manager Georgette Tengco last Wednesday, November 18 in a media launch.
Dizon will also take on the role as associate director, with Mark Reyes taking helm of the series. Noreen Capili is set to be on board as the writer.
The titular characters, played by Veneracion and Calzado, meet at the latter's bed-and-breakfast and begin a romance. Conflict arises, however, when Brody opens his own bed-and-breakfast just in front of Brandy's.
“She’s dedicated her life to running this bed and breakfast,” Calzado spoke of her character. “Mahal niya pati ‘yung mga guest niya. And then suddenly this man comes into her life, si Brody. He sweeps her off her feet, pero marami pang mangyayari.”
“Either by choice or by circumstance they’re still single," director Reyes added. "And they find themselves in this situation, na they’re warring business people, but at the same time there’s something going on between them. That’s the fun journey this limited series is going to take.”
The series is far from Calzado and Veneracion's past projects together.
Recently, they starred in the ABS-CBN series A Love To Last, the psychological thriller Bliss and the horror Ilawod, all last 2017.
“We’ve never worked on a material like this. It’s always been heavy,” Calzado said.
She also said she approached Veneracion for a workshop session, which will be done just days before the beginning of production.
“I told Ian, ‘Let’s do one!’ Kasi we’ve never done that, ‘yung ganitong dynamics. Atsaka para fresh! Kasi nga we’ve worked together na rin several times,” she said.
“It will create that extra good energy and chemistry on screen, I believe. Excited ako dito sa project na ito!” she added.
