At long last, he’s back!
Ian Veneracion has been in showbiz for forty years. In that time, he proved that he was one of the best actors around. He started out as a child star and went on to greater success as a matinee idol in his teens. As an adult, he became one of the best action stars in the 90s and early 2000s. But he proved he was capable of more when he successfully crossed over into other genres like drama and horror.
But now Ian’s back in action—literally—with One Good Day, a new series from Studio Three-Sixty, a production based in Manila. The people behind it have worked on some of the biggest and most complex TV shows in the Philippines. Now, they’re combining their strengths to create compelling content. Not just for the big screen, but for emerging digital platforms as well.
One Good Day is divided into six exciting, high-octane episodes. The pilot episode is slated to drop in November via Amazon Prime Video.
“Masu-surprise ang mga Pinoy sa ganda ng series na ‘to,” Ian says confidently. “Dahil sa technologies na available sa atin ngayon, mas mataas na yung quality ng shots at tunog. Pati yung storya at fight scenes mas creative na, kaya proud na proud kaming maipamalas dito yung talent nating mga Pinoy sa filmmaking.”
About the new Ian Veneracion starrer
In One Good Day, he plays a skilled hitman named Dale Sta. Maria. Dale leaves his organization upon learning that he doesn’t have much time left to live due to a large brain tumor. But Dale comes out of retirement when his loved ones are killed. He then embarks on one last, very personal mission to cap off his career.
Lester Pimentel directed this series. Direk Lester represented the Philippines as a national athlete. His athleticism and mastery of Wushu led him to showbiz, where he helmed Bagani, Imortal, and La Luna Sangre, among others. His painstaking work on those shows is why all their action scenes were executed flawlessly. Amazon Prime Video subscribers are in for a real treat because he brought the same attention to detail to One Good Day.
“Ipinagmamalaki ko na makagawa ng action content para sa region natin—isang bagay na sa tingin ko ay kritikal sa growth ng industriya. Maswerte ako na makatrabaho si Ian na hindi lang isang batikang aktor, pero isa ding magaling na martial artist at athlete,” Direk Lester says of his lead actor.
Ian Veneracion leads a star-studded cast featuring Aljur Abrenica, Andrea Torres, Justin Cuyugan, Pepe Herrera, Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, Nicole Cordoves, and Robert Seña. Claire Ruiz, Joe Vargas, Lance Pimentel, Louise Abuel, and Pontri Bernardo also star.
One Good Day is a riveting story about family, greed, love, and power. New episodes will be available for streaming every Thursday starting November 17, 2022.
