The first original Filipino content slated to make its way to the streaming video service is as follows: 

Big Night!

How To Love Mr. Heartless

Hopeless romantics are in for a treat, as How To Love Mr. Heartless is dropping on Amazon Prime Video on August 15. The film follows Sue Ramirez’s character, Yanyan, fall in love and tries her best to capture the heart of Diego Loyzaga's Blue a.k.a. Mr. Heartless. Will Yanyan's loving and upbeat nature be good enough to turn things around for the cold and distant Blue?
