Very rarely a production on local TV gets the opportunity to shoot in an international facility freely with the support of the organization that runs it.
That’s exactly is what TV5 is proud of after it shot its next Wattpad Presents episode in Hong Kong Disneyland.
The local TV channel is marking a milestone on Philippine television with a partnership with Hong Kong Disneyland in the special romantic-comedy episode of Wattpad Presents. The network says “The Magic in You’” will make viewers’ hearts flutter. It is also a fitting tribute to all Filipinos who are working in Disneyland.
The Happy Network is proud to announce that, for the first time, a Filipino network has been chosen by Hong Kong Disneyland in creating a quality and wholesome entertainment program for the family as part of its 10th anniversary celebration.
TV5’s Wattpad Presents, which broke the traditional nightly drama offering by bringing a weekly romantic-comedy mini-series suited for all ages, was invited to shoot at the “happiest place on earth”, Hong Kong Disneyland. This was the first time that a local television shot almost an entire episode in the theme park.
“The Magic in You”, based upon the online novel originally written by marielicious, brings back the sought-after love team of Artista search alumni Mark Neumann and Shaira Mae. The two give life to the characters of Basti Rivera and Princess Anne Dimla.
This special Wattpad Presents episode tells the story of Princess (Shaira Mae) who, like every girl, grew up with a certain fondness for Disney characters, like Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella, and Mulan. She, too, believes in the magic of love that comes to all Disney princesses. As if the universe granted her heart’s desire, Princess finally got her wish when she gets to fly to the happiest place on earth, Hong Kong Disneyland, believing that finally, her dream of being a part of Disney family as a songwriter has been granted. Unfortunately though, her heart is crushed the moment she finds out that she has been conned, and she is now facing a grim reality that there is no job waiting for her in Hong Kong Disneyland. To add insult to injury, the most miserable and devastating scenario in her life was captured and posted on YouTube by a boy named Basti (Mark) who recorded her breakdown and made her an overnight online sensation.
She vows to find the culprit who publicized the “Parade Crybaby” video. And Princess eventually meets Basti. In the course of one year, Princess and Basti would cross each other’s paths, finding themselves hating, befriending and helping each other. Find out how Princess and Basti will find “happily ever” after in the magical place of Hong Kong Disneyland.
Wattpad Presents “The Magic in You” airs Monday to Friday, starting April 13, at 9 p.m. on TV5.
