The newest teen barkada that will capture the hearts of today’s youth is here as Anthony Jennings, Daniela Stranner, Kaori Oinuma, JC Alcantara, Vivoree Esclito, CJ Salonga, and Zach Castañeda explore love, friendship, and aspirations in iWantTFC’s newest original series, “Tara, G!”

Get to know Team WISE or “Walang Iwanan Sa Ere,” a group of hopeful teenagers whose ultimate dream is to bring back the pride and glory of the simple town of La Guerta by cultivating coffee which they export and market as beans and coffee wine.

Meet Rocky (Anthony), the charming and ever-reliable leader of the pack; Legs (Kaori), the smart and caring darling; Dan (JC), a handsome smooth talker who has feelings for Legs; Jengjeng (Vivoree), a sweet and ‘kikay’ girl with big dreams; Will (Zach), the funny, go-to-guy and protective brother of Smith (CJ), who is the genius one in the barkada.

As they navigate their way to adulthood, Team WISE will encounter challenges along the way, including the arrival of Cars (Daniela), a beautiful yet narcissistic rich girl. Cars will bring chaos to La Guerta when she gets drunk and accidentally breaks shelves of coffee wine bottles that Team WISE worked so hard on.

The solid friendship of Team WISE will also be put to the test when romantic feelings get in the way of their relationship. Aside from Dan’s jealousy over Rocky and Legs’ closeness, it appears that Rocky will also start to fall for Cars.

When problems seem to be adding up, the adults of La Guerta see this as an opportunity to convince Team WISE that their hometown is not a place for their dreams and that they just have to learn how to settle for less or move to a bigger and better town.

Despite the struggles and conflict, Team WISE is out to prove everyone wrong as they band together and fight to achieve their dreams.  Will Team WISE learn how to get along with Cars? Will their friendship remain intact as they try to bring back the glory of La Guerta?

“Tara, G!” is directed by Cathy Camarillo and it will stream on the iWantTFC app and website (iwanttfc.com) beginning October 7. The series is also available for premium subscribers outside of the Philippines.

Viewers can also find out how Team WISE started in the wattpad prequel, “Summer Camp,” which was written by Tina Lata.


Two of the most sought-after actresses in Philippine showbiz pit their acting prowess in comedy in the new series titled “Kalye Kweens” which starts airing this Saturday, October 1, at 8:30 p.m. on TV 5 and every Sunday at 8 p.m. on Sari-Sari Channel.

With Ms. Alma and Ms. Dina in lead roles, “Kalye Kweens” features relatable and realistic scenes about two rival women, two families and two communities. The show will bring nostalgic vibes since it is the television comeback of Dina and Alma, plus Marissa Delgado, Jeric Raval, Jojo Abellana, Giselle Sanchez, Marissa Sanchez, Jairus Aquino, Vitto Marquez, Aubrey Caraan, and Lyca Gairanod.

Directed by Temi Cruz Abad, “Kalye Kweens” is about two childhood friends Mandy (Alma), the Homeowners’ Association President of Altaville and Telly (Dina), the Barangay Captain of Kapit-Bisig. They are the best of friends but their closeness soured when Mandy’s father won in the lotto and the family relocated to the middle class subdivision in Altaville. Aside from the class difference brought by their separation, added tension ensues when Telly married Roy (Jeric), the ex-boyfriend of Mandy.

The conflict intensifies in the two communities of Altaville and Kapit-Bisig when San Diego LGU ordered that intersecting street of Calachuchi (in Kapit-Bisig) and Lavender (in Altaville) be made a public passageway. Being the respective leaders in their communities, Mandy and Telly will do everything in their power to protect their respective territories.

Watch the riotous encounters in “Kalye Kweens” beginning tomorrow. For more information, follow the official social media pages of TV5 and Sari-Sari Channel.
