From the star-studded cast to the shade and references, the new ABS-CBN drama is off to a good start!
The Internet is even calling for the drama to be placed on Netflix.
There is nothing better to end the day with than vengeance being served on a very hot plate.
The newest revenge drama offered by ABS-CBN, ‘Dirty Linen’ started with literally a bang as they feature the special participation of Golden Globe nominee Dolly de Leon to set the pace of the story.
As if that’s not enough, the whole ensemble is filled with great actors to portray characters we both love and love to hate. First-ever Filipino Volpi Cup winner John Arcilla, Janice De Belen, Angel Aquino, Joel Torre, Epy Quizon, JC Santos, Christian Bables, Jennica Garcia, and Tessie Tomas are part of the long list of actors starring in the drama. Top billing are Seth Fedelin, Francine Diaz, Janine Gutierrez, and Zanjoe Marudo.

2. The quality of this drama truly showcases Filipino creative excellence.
Viewers of the show say that if the creators of the show keep this quality, the story will most likely even be picked up for foreign adaptations. Fans are also calling out for the show to be put on major international streaming platforms such as Netflix with the caliber of talent working on this production.
Dirty Linen deserves to be shown on Netflix. The cinematography ang ganda. The powerful ensemble casts were all great in their roles even the special participation casts especially Dolly De Leon. The eyes of @janinegutierrez are already acting without her saying anything. pic.twitter.com/UQqD2q9Djo

3. Viewers are applauding the advancements in transitions and camera angles.
Filipino talent has always been there. Countless stories have been told by actors who show they can portray a variety of roles. However, this may be due to the lack of budget for the projects, sometimes creatives fail to follow through with the execution of the camera angles and final editing. But that is not the case with ‘Dirty Linen’. Viewers have been raving about the creative execution and vision of the series.
this whole shot is everything!
the transition from the corpses, to Tessie Tomas performing, to Joel Torre eavesdropping the crowd that are curious about Fierro's inheritance, and to Janice De Belen being a basic bitch.
