 Zsa Zsa Padilla leads Filipino guest stars in next episode

After helping catch a drug smuggler and a human trafficker, former secret agent Alex Walker, played by Hollywood actor Christian Kane, will face another band of dangerous criminals this Sunday (April 4), 8:45 pm on “Almost Paradise.”


In the next episode of the U.S. crime drama series, Alex and Filipino cop Ernesto Alamares (Art Acuña) will run into a group of mobsters that are terrorizing local street-food vendors. Watch the two go undercover once again to capture the thugs wreaking havoc in the community on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, Kapamilya Online Live, and iWantTFC.


Meanwhile, Ernesto’s fellow detective Kai Mendoza (Sam Richelle) will get assigned as close-in security of Governor Nina Rosales, portrayed by Zsa Zsa Padilla.  As she guards the official, Kai will also discover something shady about a colleague.


The upcoming episode, which is written by Ty Freer and Nick Keetch and directed by Fil-Am director Francis dela Torre, also features local actors Nonie Buencamino, Lou Veloso, Michael Roy Jornales, Eric Tai, Zeppi Borromeo, and Ricci Chan.


Since it premiered last March 21, “Almost Paradise” has been receiving rave reviews from viewers. Anticipation has been high for its local debut since it is the first U.S. series shot entirely in the Philippines and which boasts of an all-star Filipino cast and production crew.


Twitter user @shannecuevo said, “Bihira lang ako ma-amaze sa Fil. Series. ‘Tong Almost Paradise ng ABS-CBN, first aired pa lang today pero ang angas na. Good choice of artists din para gumanap sa mga roles. Ang gagaling!”


Another netizen, @Nairam881 also praised the series for showing what Filipinos can do. “Yung Almost Paradise ang ganda… Galing ng ABS-CBN almost 70% ng series is directed by a Filipino director nashowcase talaga ang Filipino talent.”


A project of Electric Entertainment and ABS-CBN, “Almost Paradise” follows the story of a retired U.S. DEA agent who is hoping for a fresh start in the Philippines after experiencing betrayal and developing a medical condition because of his work. He, however, could not help but return to his old ways as he helps local cops catch rich and powerful criminals wandering in the island paradise he now calls home.


Find out how Alex, Ernesto, and Kai fulfill their missions in another action packed episode of “Almost Paradise,” 8:45 pm this Sunday (April 4) on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, Kapamilya Online Live (KOL), and iWantTFC. Viewers can also enjoy unli-replay of the latest episode for seven days on KOL.
