MANILA -- Eugene Domingo is taking the digital route for the third installment of her indie hit "Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank."
Reprising her role as a megalomaniacal and egotistical version of herself, Domingo levels up in the the seven-episode mockumentary series "Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank: The Real Untold Story of Josephine Bracken," which documents the step-by-step process in making a biopic.
"Direktor na ako ngayon ng historical film na 'The Real Untold Story of Josephine Bracken,'" Domingo said of her character in the series written by Chris Martinez and directed by Marlon Rivera, who will produce, direct and take on the role of Bracken, Jose Rizal's well-known love.
For Domingo, now is the right time to go digital. Produced by Quantum Films and Dreamscape Digital, "Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank: The Real Untold Story of Josephine Bracken" will start streaming on iWant on July 17.
"Hindi ba uso na ang digital series ngayon. So dapat updated tayo, sumasabay at sumasakay. Saka kasi kailangan din nating ma-reach ang mas maraming tao na minsan ang time lang nila to watch movies or series ay sa iWant na digital, so sali tayo diyan," Domingo said in a press conference on Wednesday.
The digital series also stars Tony Labrusca, who plays as himself and as Jose Rizal, as well as Mylene Dizon, Joanna Ampil and Jose Javier Reyes.
Providing historical facts is Filipino historian Ambeth Ocampo.
"Laging may pressure sa paggawa ng kahit ano. But this time I am more excited. Seven episode kasi siya. So parang mas ang kapal nang pupuntahan, ang layo, ang exciting. I'm very sure marami kaming maabot na market," Domingo said.
Before watching the series, viewers can watch the first two "Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank" films for free on iWant.
