Boys love (BL) series from Thailand has become the talk of the town among series lovers recently. Thai BL shows, like 2gether: The Series, have made their presence known, making them one of many past times of Filipinos among the enhanced community quarantine period.

And very soon, our country will have its own local show of the BL genre thanks to film director Darryl Yap.

On his social media accounts, the blockbuster director of the Kim Molina-led comedy flick Jowable announced that he is currently writing a limited BL series with a working title called SAKRISTAN, which will have 8 episodes. It will have its nationwide premiere by either later April or May 2020.

“Sweet. Scandalous. Sincere,” Yap describes his upcoming series in his posts.

Yap is still in the process of writing the limited BL series, which he said is a brave attempt to break the conservative norms of Philippine social media.

“A Brave attempt of a Filipino Filmmaker/ Online Creator to break the conservative grounds of the PH Social Media as he tackles BOYS LOVE in a Catholic Country,” the director said in a tweet.

The series follows two boys named Zach and Christian, which will be played by actors from his “VinCentiments” Facebook page, known for its viral videos such as Jowable and KPL (Kung P’wede Lang).

On Twitter, Yap already gave details of the Christian character, to be played by Henry Villanueva.

The voices behind the series’ original soundtrack will be by Filipino pop band The Juans, who has been enjoying successes behind their new singles “Sirang Plaka” and “Manalangin.”

In another post, Yap gave another preview of the series, with this intriguing caption:

“MAHALIN MO ANG IYONG KAPWA...Sa likod ng Altar, Sa harap ng Pag-ibig. MAKOKONSENSYA KA SA KILIG…”

BL fan pages from Indonesia and Portugal have picked up the news and posted about it on their Twitter accounts, prompting international excitement.
