After the successful release of the digital series "GVBOYS: Pangmalakasang Good Vibes" and "Ang Babae sa Likod ng Face Mask," Puregold Channel is set to premiere "52 Weeks," the first-ever Filipino series made for Tiktok.
The 36-episode series was directed by Lemuel Lorca and produced by award-winning filmmaker Chris Cahilig. It features rising new talents such as Queenay, a Tiktok superstar with 12.3 million followers, and Jin Macapagal, the first Ultimate BidaMan winner of "It's Showtime." Derick Lauchengco, the reigning Misters of Filipinas Second Prince, and Herbie Cruz, a Tiktok personality with more than 700 thousand followers, are also part of the series.
"Super happy po ako na naging part ako ng series na 'to," Mercado gushes. "Knowing na ito po ang kauna-unahang Filipino Tiktok series, I feel honored to be cast as leading lady!"
She then tells all her followers on Tiktok, "Para sa inyo po ang nakakakilig na series na ito! Sana po manood kayong lahat at patuloy na sumuporta sa akin."
