The recent photos indicated that the project had started the taping, as it gears to air in the latter part of 2023. 

During the series’ media announcement in July, director Mae spoke of Donny and Belle’s respect for their craft, commending both of them for the extra efforts that the two consistently put up to deliver quality entertainment. 

“They want to make this work even more. Ito, napaka-hardworking na couple nila, na love team nila. And together, I know that they will go very, very far,” she says. 

As for Donny, working with the director proves untaxing—made possible by the director’s openness to help them with their acting. 

“There are so many questions that we have, and we haven’t gone through a lot of these experiences. And for her to say na, ‘I will guide you, ganito ako, ako ang bahala,’ yung mga ganung words of wisdom, it really means a lot, Direk,” he says. 

Donny and Belle’s breakout tandem stemmed out of their pairing in the 2021 online series “He’s Into Her.” Subsequently, fans had more of them as they headlined the 2021 film “Love is Color Blind.” 

In 2022, after the success of “He’s Into Her” season two, they bannered “An Inconvenient Love,” a romantic comedy film under the direction of Petersen Vargas.
