ABS-CBN and Viu, PCCW’s leading  pan-regional OTT video streaming service, announced today the expansion of their  partnership to adapt the hit South Korean thriller drama Flower of Evil in 16 markets across  Asia, the Middle East and South Africa. This much-anticipated series is the first Viu Original  Adaptation from the Philippines which stars Lovi Poe and Piolo Pascual. It will stream  simultaneously on Viu 48 hours before its domestic television broadcast. 

ABS-CBN Entertainment’s Chief Operating Officer for Broadcast, Cory Vidanes, and Viu  Philippines’ Country Manager, Arianne Kader-Cu, shared their excitement for the series, which  will be Lovi’s first Kapamilya teleserye since joining ABS-CBN and Piolo’s first drama series  after four years. 

Ms. Arianne said, “Testament to our commitment to bringing the best premium Asian  entertainment to Viu-ers, we are happy to work with ABS-CBN once again to bring the  Philippine adaptation of Flower of Evil to all of Viu’s 16 markets. This latest offering puts  Filipino talent front and centre in the way we do storytelling, supported by a powerhouse cast  and a world-class production team.” 

Ms Cory said, “Our partnership with Viu on the local adaptation of Flower of Evil is a major  milestone for ABS-CBN Entertainment. This is an opportunity for us to showcase excellent  Filipino content and talent to the global audience in the 16 markets of Viu.” 

She added, “Our local adaptation of the Korean hit love story Flower of Evil, a compelling and  powerful narrative on love for family, search for truth and justice, is the unanimous choice to  open our regional partnership with Viu.” 

Flower of Evil is currently in production and is scheduled to premiere soon. It follows the  thrilling story of a man who successfully changes his identity in order to hide his scandalous  past. He then marries a police detective, who will later on be tasked with investigating an  unsolved serial murder case that will lead her back to him. 

The show also stars Agot Isidro, Edu Manzano, Denise Laurel, Joross Gamboa, Joem Bascon,  Epy Quizon, Rita Avila, Jett Pangan, Pinky Amador, Joko Diaz and JC de Vera.
