A 21-year-old commercial model and aspiring heartthrob who has long been estranged from his celebrity dad, a renowned TV personality, will try his luck at becoming a boyband member when he auditions in ABS-CBN’s talent-reality show “Pinoy Boyband Superstar” this weekend (Oct 1 and 2).
While auditioning, the self-confessed ‘mama’s boy’ will see his dad for the first time in many years. Before this, he had only met his dad once and never had a relationship with him while growing up.
The aspiring boyband member also wants to give back to his mother, who has served as his inspiration and has sacrificed a lot for him. He also wants to follow in the footsteps of his mother, herself a former member of a popular 90s band.
He is just one of the auditionees fighting for their dreams and hoping to make it in the industry to provide a better future for their families.
Last weekend, Aeiou Villanueva successfully passed his audition. He wants to fulfill his dream to be able to pay for the medical expenses of his mom, who suffers from different illnesses and needs to undergo therapy.
There is also Neil Murillo, whose audition video on YouTube has now garnered almost 2.3 million views. Neil hopes that his dreams and personal success will pave the way to the improvement of his family’s welfare and help his blind brother be able to see again.
Who else will impress superstar judges Vice Ganda, Sandara Park, Yeng Constantino, and Aga Muhlach?
Don’t miss the journey of aspiring boyband members as they make their dreams come true in “Pinoy Boyband Superstar,” which airs on Saturdays at 7:15PM and on Sundays at 7PM. For updates, visit boyband.ph, like facebook.com/BoybandPH on Facebook, and follow @BoybandPH on Twitter. (TV Series Craze)

ABS-CBN Corporation once again received honors from the International Emmy® Awards as Kapamilya actress Jodi Sta. Maria and ABS-CBN teleserye “Bridges of Love” picked up nominations at this year’s prestigious competition.
Jodi was recognized for her outstanding performance as Amor Powers in the 2015 remake of “Pangako Sa ‘Yo” and is nominated in the Best Performance by an Actress category against Judi Dench (United Kingdom), Grazi Massafera (Brazil), and Christiane Paul (Germany).

Michael Weatherly may have said goodbye to his role as Special Agent Anthony Dinozzo on NCIS, but his new role does not take him far from the twists and turns of the justice system.
After playing the role of a senior field agent in 13 seasons of NCIS, Michael Weatherly is taking the lead in the brand new show BULL.
“I’m gonna miss his repressive sense of humor, what I won’t miss is wearing that gun, that was uncomfortable,” Weatherly said about his NCIS character during an interview.
BULL takes inspiration from the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, co-founder of top trial consulting firm Courtroom Sciences, Inc. (CSI), which has provided trial consulting services for Fortune 500 companies as well as talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
“It’s been amazing to play a character who is all about human connection, he’s about finding out why we do the things we do, but he’s also about getting to the truth of something,” Weatherly said in another interview.
In this new series, Weatherly shifts from law enforcement to trial analytics. His character, trial consultant Dr. Jason Bull, does everything to get the justice his clients deserve.
“What’s fascinating about the whole world of trial analytics and the sciences of it is that they’re looking at things that you don’t think about,” Weatherly said.
“He (Dr. Bull) looks at a jury trial and looks at the identities of everybody involved from the judge to the attorneys, to the jury, and the witness and defendant, and he figures out what everyone’s thinking,” he added.
The doctor is perfectly aware that the 12 ordinary people making up a jury have the power to decide a person’s fate at court. He also knows that these jurors possess a preconceived notion of the truth. That’s why the key to winning a trial is by winning over the jury.
Behind the scenes
Dr. Bull further understands that even the tiniest details such as relationship status, clothes, and hairstyle can turn the court against the defendant. To avoid an unfavorable outcome, he works with a team of experts to make sure that his clients are on their best behavior and will say the right things at the witness stand.
His staff includes a lawyer who acts as defense attorney in mock trials, a neurolinguistics expert who used to be a part of the Department of Homeland Security, a former detective from the New York Police Department, a haughty millennial hacker, and a fashion stylist.
“What this show really looks at are the choices that we make, and who we think we are versus how other people think we are, and it starts to get to a hall of mirrors. It takes very complex people to figure out complex people,” Weatherly said.
BULL also stars Freddy Rodriguez (Ugly Betty, Six Feet Under), Geneva Carr (Rescue Me, Law and Order: Criminal Intent), Annabelle Attanasio (The Knick, House M.D.), Chris Jackson (Oz), and Jaime Lee Kirchner (The Mob Doctor, Mercy) along with Weatherly.
The show premieres the same day as the U.S. on September 21, Wednesday 9:00pm, first and exclusive on RTL CBS Entertainment. (TV Series Craze)

Budding musicians Migz and Maya, Star Music’s newest acoustic duo are now ready to make their own mark in the country’s music scene with the release of their debut, self-titled album released by the label.
“Migz and Maya” received mainstream recognition when they recorded a cover of “Ambon,” a Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2016 entry as the official theme song of the Star Cinema movie “How to Be Yours.” But even before this, they already performed in sold-out shows as a duo and had their fair share of fame as up-and-coming artists individually.
Migz or Miguel Haleco, a music production graduate from the College of St. Benilde, became an online sensation for his song covers on YouTube and for joining a TV network talent search. Maya or Angeli Mae Flores, on the other hand, used to be a part of Pan-asian girl group Blush, joined a singing competition on a TV network, and was a grand finalist in “Star for A Night” that saw Sarah Geronimo bagging the top prize.
Now that they have launched their debut album, the pair is thankful for the opportunity to be part of the Star Music family.
“It is a dream come true. We are very honored, fortunate, and privileged. We feel a good kind of pressure on our side too, because we need to give it our best shot to impress and prove ourselves to the people who will be supporting and listening to us,” they said.
Their album is a collection of acoustic, easy-listening original songs and covers, including “Ambon,” as well as the carrier single “Hibang,” a song entry from the Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs Top 100.
It also carries their own unique and relaxing versions of “Stay,” “One More Chance,” “Suntok sa Buwan,” “Paano Na Kaya,” “Ipagpatawad Mo,” “Paano Ba Magmahal,” and “Lihim,” Migz’s own composition.
Migz, who chose the songs on the album together with Maya, said, “We want people to feel as at ease as the album itself. It is very ‘easy-listening’ and very relatable.”
Maya, meanwhile, said, “It’s a love story that we know a lot of people can relate to. So we hope that we can make them through the rollercoaster of love.
Completing the track list are “Mahal Ko O Mahal Ako,” “Para Lang Sa ‘Yo,” “Ikaw,” “Baby I Do,” “Hanggang,” and “Makita Kang Muli.”
“Migz and Maya” was produced by Jack Rufo, a former member of the band, Neocolors, and the composer of “O Pag-Ibig” from Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2016. It can now be streamed on Spotify and is now available at all record bars nationwide for P199. Digital tracks can also be downloaded via online music stores such as ABS-CBN Store, iTunes, Mymusicstore.com.ph, Amazon.com, OneMusic.ph, and Starmusic.ph.

Internationally acclaimed Filipino independent filmmaker Lav Diaz’ film “Ang Babaeng Humayo” (“The Woman Who Left”) won the prestigious Golden Lion for Best Film, the highest honor given at the 73rd Venice Film Festival last Saturday (Sep 10).
“This is for my country, for the Filipino people, for our struggle and the struggle of humanity,” said Diaz in his acceptance speech.
Produced by ABS-CBN’s Cinema One Originals and Diaz’ Sine Olivia, “Ang Babaeng Humayo” tells the story of Horacia (Charo Santos), a woman seeking revenge after being convicted for decades for a crime she didn’t commit.
This is the first time the Philippines won in the Venice Film Festival, which is considered one of most prestigious in the world like the Cannes Film Festival and Berlin Film Festival.
Variety’s film critic Guy Lodge, in a review, said “The latest supersized opus from Filipino maximalist Lav Diaz is a powerful and, by his standards, refreshingly contained moral study.”
“Ang Babaeng Humayo” also marks the movie comeback of former ABS-CBN president and now chief content officer Charo Santos, who also earned positive reviews from critics for her role in the nearly four-hour long film.
In an article written by Clarence Tsui of The Hollywood Reporter, Charo was praised for her “majestic” and “sturdy” performance. Variety’s Lodge, meanwhile, tweeted “Woman Who Left star Charo Santos is the real Oscar frontrunner.”
The movie also stars award-winning actor John Lloyd Cruz in another must-see and daring performance.
Lav, Charo, John Lloyd, and Cinema One head Ronald Arguelles represented the country at the Venice Film Festival and attended various functions such as press conference, red carpet premiere, and the awards gala.
Also part of the cast are Michael de Mesa, Shamaine Centenera-Buencamino, Nonie Buencamino, Marj Lorico, Mayen Estanero, Romelyn Sale, Lao Rodriguez, Jean Judith Javier, Mae Paner, and Kakai Bautista. (TV Series Craze)
