In a statement on Thursday, iWant and Dreamscape Digital, which produced the six-part series, announced the new premiere date of February 16.

“iWant recognizes the sensitivity of the topics tackled in the series, including mental health problems, assault, and abuse, and deems it necessary to implement certain measures to safeguard the advocacy of the series in promoting mental health awareness,” it said.

Written and directed by Jason Paul Laxamana, “Project Feb. 14” follows a couple’s plan to record and broadcast a twisted act on Valentine’s Day.

A trailer for the series shows Brix (De Leon) and Annie (Oineza) plotting the latter’s death, meant to be seen by her parents to hurt them. They enlist the help of Cody, a documentarist who offers to chronicle the attempt.
