Masaya ring ibinalita ni Reyes, na magiging content partner nila sa malaking pagbabago si Direk Brillante Mendoza.
Aniya, magiging produktibo ang TV5 dahil sa mga bago nilang inihandang local content katulad ng monthly special na ididirehe ni Mendoza. Sa Pebrero naman ay ieere na ang bagong show ni Derek Ramsay at ipalalabas din nila ang mga US series na Super Girl at Breaking Bad.
“With the different look, with the different field, ‘yun ang hinahanap namin. We really want to talk to a different audience, in a different younger market starting 2017,” ani Reyes.
Sinabi pa ni Reyes na excited ang TV at masaya sa pakikipag-partner kay Mendoza. “He’s going to do a monthly short film once a month, depending on the month the story revolves around of the particular month. For January for example it’s going to be a story set on Chinese New Year. Then on February, a story about Baguio, the Panagbenga, then March is all about school year and so on and so forth. On the way to November and December.
“Aside from that, he’s going to do a 13-part mini-series. It is something that we view to see on TV5. On top of that monthly telemovie of Brillante, we will also have a 13-part miniseries by Brillante.
“Aside from that, we have a partnership for theatrical…theater, for actual full length movies. It is a full pledge content partnership with Brillante.”
Iginiit pa ni Reyes na napili nilang makipag-partner kay Mendoza dahil nais nilang ipahatid ang kanilang mensahe na sila ang home ng indie film, indie film makers, o ng story teller o producer.
“That’s the very strong message that we want to send out, that’s why we have this partnership with Brillante.”
