Pageant fans, unite! It's been such a long time since we saw a TV series about the beauty pageant world, and ABS-CBN's streaming service iWant is ready to bring us just that with a star-studded cast. Beauty Queens, which is written by Eric Ramos and directed by Joel Lamangan, will be hitting our *small* screens very soon.
While we don't know much about the story yet, we do know that is stars real-life queens Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz, Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Winwyn Marquez, and Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina, together with actors Maris Racal, Nella Dizon, and Ross Pesigan.
The show's story conference took place on December 5 and Maris excitedly posted photos from their look test on Instagram. Maxine also shared photos of herself dressed as a beauty queen AND a nun. We're sooo psyched to find out more about their characters!
Speaking to PUSH, Maris said that she was very honored to be working alongside "icons" such as Gloria. "Alam mo yung kapag katabi mo sila, feeling ko isa na rin akong beauty queen, of course, with my looks right now and siyempre kinikilabutan ko. I'm very excited na mapanood ito ng mga tao lalo na yung mga fans ng beauty pageants."
