Netflix anime has just announced that they are adapting cult favorite graphic novel  "Trese" by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo. Set in Manila, local mythological creatures hide among humans as protagonist Alexandra Trese braves a criminal underworld rife with evil supernatural beings. 

For this show, Jay Oliva, of Wonder Woman fame, serves as executive producer. The anime will be produced by Shanty Harmayn and Tanya Yuson at BASE Entertainment, a studio based in Jakarta and Singapore.

Given its cult status in the Philippines, "Trese" could well be our next great global offering. Expectations are high, but we're sure it won't disappoint.
