“Believe me. It was also hard for everyone,” the filmmaker said on Twitter.
Prior to this, Liza’s manager, Ogie Diaz, announced that the series won’t be part of the scripted ABS-CBN dramas resuming through the new Kapamilya Channel on cable and satellite TV this week.
Theodore further explained that “decisions had to be made” after ABS-CBN “suffered a double blow” due to the coronavirus pandemic that halted all movie and television productions around the world, and the shutting down of its broadcast operations following the May 4 expiration of its franchise.
ABS-CBN was already badly hit by the pandemic, and then suffered a double blow when its renewal was not granted. Decisions had to be made and we respect and understand why it ought to be done. #IbalikAngABSCBN #MassTestingNowPH
