Almost Paradise
« on: Apr 02, 2020 at 12:53 PM »


ALMOST PARADISE
Produced by Dean Devlin and Gary Rosen
Premieres March 30, 2020 on WGN America

Alex Walker, a former US DEA agent who was forced into early retirement. Once the DEA’s most resourceful undercover operative, the combination of his partner’s betrayal and a life-threatening battle with hypertension has sent him as far from the madness as he can go… a small tropical island in the Philippine Archipelago. He now runs the gift shop at the island’s luxury resort hotel, gets his disability payments at the nearby US Air Force base, and generally manages his transition from Jason Bourne to Jimmy Buffett. BUT, the island’s luxury resorts attract rich, powerful, and sometimes criminal elite from around the world, often on a collision course with Alex. Despite his best efforts to begin a tranquil new life, he’s pulled back into a world of dangerous people and deadly situations, either through his friends in the local police department or running into people from his old life. And the problem is: he likes it.

An American TV series set in and shot in the Philippines. This could have been a big chance to showcase local talent (in front & behind the camera) and locations, but based on the trailer / synopsis, seems like it will be bad and cheesy. Have not watched the first episode. Hehe....  :P

Yay...hope that this shall boost our local tourism industry (in spite of the global entertainment shutdown no thanks to COVID-19).

Sana they can cast local talents/beauties such as Miss Universes Pia Wurzbach and Catriona Gray even in recurring roles

Episode 3 done. I like this episode, it was funny. One thing I just noticed is that why do most Filipino characters speak in straight English even when just amongst themselves? Pwede naman magtagalog or bisaya na lang... mas realistic pag ganun.
