An on the rise love team from PBB Kumunity Season 10: KD Estrada and Alexa Ilacad are ready to take their pairing to new heights with the iWantTFC series, Run To Me premiering this month. The series focuses on two strangers living opposite lives, who share a passion for streaming, and find their way to each other in the most unexpected manner.
Jewel (Alexa Ilacad) is on top of her game online. She has reached superstar status for capturing the niche of singing flawlessly while doing make-up tutorials. But while enjoying the success of her virtual life, she is down in the dumps with her real family life. Her busy mother Emerald (Mickey Ferriols) has no time for Jewel, focusing instead on the family business. Jewel feels left out as her mother's attention is directed towards her younger brother, Diamond (Sean Tristan).
On the flip side, Wilson (KD Estrada) is also a music streamer but struggles for views. He hustles hard with side gigs trying to help his mother (Nikki Valdez) and pay for her hospital bills. He may not be getting fan love online, the unconditional love he shares with his mom is unmatched.
Jewel and Wilson crosses paths unexpectedly as Wilson tries to rescue Jewel from what he thought was a kidnapping. He finds out the situation was staged by Jewel to grab her mother's attention. Does Wilson play along to her scheme, playing along as her fake kidnapper or will both of them get caught in their lie?
Start streaming Run To Me outside the Philippines May 20th on Kumu and starting May 21st, a new episode drops every Sunday on iWantTFC for subscribers on the Premium Plan. The series produced by ABS-CBN Entertainment, Dreamscape Entertainment, iWantTFC, and Kumu is directed by Dwein R. Baltazar and also stars and Malou Crisologo, CJ Navato, Karl Gabriel, Ivan Carapiet, Margaux Montana, Henz Villaraiz, Matty Juniosa, and Haira Palaguitto.
Top Class: The Rise To P-Pop Stardom is the newest talent search survival show that aims to form the next male Pinoy pop band. With KZ Tandingan named as a singing mentor, it’s only right that the show tapped an A-list dance mentor as well.
Filipino-American singer/dancer Brian Puspos has been named the official dance mentor for Top Class: The Rise To P-Pop Stardom.
“It means more than anybody could imagine. Although I am from the USA, I am a proud full-blooded Filipino, and I am so honored to be a part of making history and finding the next P-POP stars. To represent dance at such a high level and to be a proud Filipino on a platform like this is a dream come true,” says Brian.
Brian’s resume as a dancer is as accomplished as they come. As a choreographer, he has worked with household names in music such as K-Pop group BTS, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and more. He also boasts two top 3 finishes in America’s Best Dance Crew with SoReal Cru (second season) and Mos Wanted Crew (seventh season.) Puspos was also awarded “Male Choreographer of the Year” by World of Dance in 2012 and 2014.

About Love At First Stream:
LOVE AT FIRST STREAM is about this new world where life has become wildly digital. A streamer, a student, a breadwinner, and a heartthrob explore love and friendships online to escape their realities offline. LOVE AT FIRST STREAM a film by Cathy Garcia-Molina is an official entry to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival. In cinemas coming this Christmas, December 25, 2021.
The pandemic showed us the power of social media. Though far from each other, it brought us together. It showed us alternative ways to express ourselves, communicate and consume entertainment. Different industries thought of ways on how to adapt and be more creative in finding ways to migrate their business as usuals.
Film production has been put on hold for the first few months of our lockdown but ABS-CBN Films found creative ways to keep telling stories. And as we move to a better normal they continue to tell our story. And this year, they are proud to partner with the country’s biggest live streaming and social entertainment platform, kumu.
kumu is a powerful social media platform that brings the voices of Filipinos from all over the globe at the forefront. Aside from presenting users real-time earning opportunities as a live streamer, chances to win cash in various game shows, and engagement in campaigns, kumu also fosters communities that ignite relevant discussions among Filipinos.
Star Cinema is the country’s largest film production and distribution company that produced and released most of the highest-grossing Philippine films of all time. Their films targeted mainstream viewers with film genres ranging from action, drama, comedy, horror, and fantasy. Star Cinema is also known for romantic-comedy films that made us fall in love, over and over again like One More Chance, My Ex and Whys, Hows of Us, Hello, Love, Goodbye and a lot more.
Over the past 2 decades, Star Cinema movies have discovered generations of talents and love teams that the Filipinos loved and supported. And with that, they continue the mission to discover and hone new talents with it’s very own, RISE Artists Studio.
The partnership between Star Cinema and kumu will soon bear fruit and produce a movie that will soon be in production. This romantic-comedy movie will be directed by the blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina.
The one-of-a-kind partnership between a film production company, Star Cinema and streaming and social entertainment platform kumu, hopes to bring the audience a different kind of entertainment viewing.

Hottest news this week, Careless Music and Kumu Live just announced Nadine Lustre’s first solo concert entitled “Absolute Madness.” As the culmination to her debut solo album “Wildest Dreams”, the concert will air online through Kumu Live’s streaming platform on July 3, 2021 at 7 PM. Purchase tickets now on the Kumu Live website (www.kumu.live) to experience the grand spectacle from the safety of your own homes.
Kumu, a mobile streaming platform in the Philippines, kicked off a desktop version of their app to cater to live streaming ticketed events. Their continued support for Careless Music and for Nadine herself since the release of the Wildest Dreams Visual Album back in October of 2020 led to another big collaboration for this upcoming show made by and in collaboration with world class Filipino talents.
While the visual album last year was groundbreaking in itself for being the first of its kind in the Philippines, all eyes are on this concert again as it is said to be another first in the country for its unique blend of live concert and theatrical stage play.
Produced by Careless Music and shot by The Finest, Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo joins the team as director of the production. Known to be the “first lady of Philippine musical theatre,” Direk Menchu was associate director and also main cast of the musical theater play “Ang Huling El Bimbo” which ran for two successful seasons back in 2018 and 2019. Additionally, even Nadine herself was hands-on in putting together her first-ever solo concert since the onset of her career. Rehearsals are well under way as Nadine goes all in with the cast and crew, which also features James Reid, Massiah, and A-Team in the production. And with Kumu Live as a platform to stream this, “Absolute Madness” is truly another product of great Filipino artists’ and creators’ joint effort.
Direk Menchu shares the creative process she went through with Nadine saying, “She [Nadine] was instrumental in creating the concept. It was inspired by ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass.’ Nadine wanted it to encompass a magical land. When I asked her what her idea of refuge or fantasy was, she replied NATURE.”
She also said that the experience of working with Nadine is nothing short of amazing and unlike anything she has ever done before. ”Being able to collaborate with Nadine and create a totally new concept was incredible. Nadine had all these great ideas, my challenge was to see those ideas through.”
In a nutshell, Nadine Lustre’s “Absolute Madness” picks up from the Wildest Dreams Visual Album to cement how Nadine has found the answer to the quest of finding herself. Fans can expect never-before-seen performances of tracks from her “Wildest Dreams” album, set on the backdrop of a fantastical theater stage.
Ticket price starts at PHP 499 for Gen Ad, PHP 999 for Gen Ad + official concert merch, PHP 1499 for VIP + post-concert backstage pass, and PHP 1999 for VIP + post-concert backstage pass and official concert merch. To get even more of the concert experience, you may opt to get VVIP access which also includes pre- and post-show backstage passes with official concert merch for PHP 2999, but hurry because these are capped at only 100 tickets!
A sonic and visual experience like no other, witness Nadine Lustre’s and Careless Music’s first-ever online concert ‘Absolute Madness’ conquering the world of digital and theater stage!

Since the release of Nadine Lustre's visual album Wildest Dreams, there's been BTS content, podcasts, and interviews on making this project. Now as the world slowly adapts to coming out of the pandemic, more live shows and performances are scheduled. With that said, Careless Music announced Nadine's first-ever digital concert on July 3rd called Absolute Madness through Kumu Live Events.
The show is described as an experience "conquering the world of digital and theater stage." Expect to see a theatrical project that matches the detail and art form of the album's visual videos. Careless Music partnered up with the livestreaming app Kumu and Mountain Dew to make the event possible. More congratulations are in order as Wildest Dreams hit 1 million streams on Spotify. Nadine and Careless Music celebrated by posting a couple behind-the-scenes photos while filming the visual album.
Tickets are now available to purchase for Absolute Madness on kumu.live
