5 Books Antoinette Jadaone and Dan Villegas Should Turn Into a TV Series

It's about time!

There's no doubt that ♥ real-life sweethearts ♥ Antoinette Jadaone (That Thing Called Tadhana) and Dan Villegas (English Only, Please) are a team to beat whenever they join forces to tell us stories on TV and on the big screen. And because we're sooo obsessed with book-to-screen adaptations these days (S/O to 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale!), we thought that they should bring our favorite books from our amazing local authors to TV, too.

  1. All That Darkness Allows

We're game for some mystery, thrill, and even darkness (BWAHAHA!) this year, and we think that if these two storytellers bring All That Darkness Allows' 13 stories of modern horror in one show, it will be an amazing rollercoaster ride for us, televiewers, every single night. Ugh, we can't contain our excitement already even if we're just imagining how it will work out on TV!

  1. The Every Girl's Guide series by Marla Miniano

We know you love Anna, Chrissy, and Rickie's friendship and their stories of dealing with relationships in the confusing world of being a teenager. Plus, we're a sucker for barkadas, too, and this book's series version could be where we'll finally see our three favorite young stars together. *cough* Kathryn, Liza, and Nadine *cough* Please make this happen, TV gods!

  1. Vince's Life series by Vince O. Teves

If there's something more confusing than high school, it's college (a.k.a. our first forray to the chaotic world of adulting). That's why we fell in love with this series, which originally started on the pages of Seventeen Philippines. Also, we need a TV series that actually shows the struggles of being in college, be it on grades, relationships, and juggling these two together, and we think Vince's Life could be that for us.

  1. Popped series by Chinggay Labrador

We're pretty sure this is going to be a big hit, especially now that there's another wave of K-Drama invasion happening on TV! Popped tells the story of fangirl Andie's K-Drama (it started with Coffee Prince) and K-Pop obsessions and how those kind of affected her life. This could also show those who judge fangirls (please stop the hate, guise) that fangirling isn't easy because we're also shown about its highs and lows.

  1. The Soshal Network's Etiquette for Soshal Climbers by The Soshal Network

Based on all the hilarious tips published on The Soshal Network, we want to see people living by this book on screen! There may even be moments when it'll get heartbreaking (in a fun way, maybe?) because it's hard to be a soshal climber. LOL! Seeing all that on screen will surely be a breath of fresh air because there are a ton of drama going on everywhere these days. *sigh*

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
