For its first offering, One Hugot Away will have Kapuso actors Shaira Diaz and David Licauco banner the story of Ella and Ben entitled “Walang Label.”

Ella and Ben have gotten really close spending time together for the past six months. Ella admits they “enjoy” each other’s company. But it boggles her that while Ben shows they are more than friends, he is not consistent with his actions. What will happen once she confronts Ben about the label of their relationship if there is one?

Snippets of this short film will be seen on TV during commercial gaps of Kapuso Movie Festival, Wowowin, and My Golden Life. Netizens, on the other hand, will be able to catch the two-part story at 7:00 p.m..

But viewers will have to wait until March 28 during the timeslot of My Golden Life to know what will be the ending of Ella and Ben’s story. Netizens on the other hand, can watch the finale on March 29 at 12:00 noon.

The first One Hugot Away short film is written by James Estrada and directed by Zig Dulay. The Clash alumna Muriel Lomadilla sang the theme song entitled “Bakit ‘Di Na Lang Tayo,” which was composed by Roxanne Fabian and mixed by Andrea Cullla under GMA Post Music Production.
