EntertainmentTrese Is Coming To Netflix: A Milestone for Pinoy Pop Culture
June is looking like a monumental month for Pinoy Netflix subscribers. Beyond incorporating Filipino films like Heneral Luna , BuyBust and Dead Kids into their roster, the streaming platform made it known in late 2018 that their next big move is to produce a whopping 17 all-new original productions from all over Asia. We learned then that Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo’s Pinoy graphic novel Trese is one of them. And after the long wait, it’s finally premiering. Written by advertising director-turned-comic man of the Philippines Budjette Tan, Trese recounts the eerie adventures of one Alexandra Trese AKA the resident supernatural crimes investigator. From one gut-wrenching case to another, she unearths, unlocks and grapples with the many mysteries hiding within the streets of Metro Manila, where mythical creatures and monsters ( mga aswang , engkanto at multo ) live among humans.
