MANILA, SEPTEMBER 30, 2022 – HBO Asia Original Series On The Job has been nominated for Best TV Movie/Mini-Series at the 50th International Emmy® Awards which will take place on November 21, 2022 in New York City. The series is available on HBO GO.
On The Job centres around crime syndicates that temporarily release contracted prison inmates to carry out political assassinations for those in power, except that the crime syndicates are run by politicians. The series also puts a spotlight on the real-world predicament concerning fake news and how easily truth can be manufactured and disseminated to the public in today’s age of information.
Conceived and directed by Erik Matti, the series in English and Filipino is filmed in the Philippines starring Joel Torre, John Arcilla, Piolo Pascual, Dennis Trillo, Gerald Anderson, Joey Marquez, Dante Rivero, Christopher De Leon and Lotlot De Leon. The six-part hour-long crime thriller series also saw John Arcilla win Best Actor for his performance as ‘Sisoy Salas’ at the 78th Venice Film Festival in 2021 – making him the first Filipino actor to take home the prestigious Volpi Cup.
Produced by Reality MM Studios and Globe Studios, On The Job is written by Michiko Yamamoto and Erik Matti and executive produced by Ronald “Dondon” Monteverde, Erik Matti, Joe Caliro and Quark Henares. Following the success of the HBO Asia Original series On The Job season 1, Warner Bros. Discovery are working with Reality MM Studios on season 2.
