‘Love Thy Woman’ series of Kim Chiu has to adapt to new normal
Kapamilya TV series Love Thy Woman featuring Kim Chiu and Xian Lim decided to eliminate the supporting cast.
Amid the new normal that the entertainment industry has to cope up with, changes must be done in shootings. Cast members of soap operas have to be locked in their shooting locations as a part of the necessary precaution against the COVID-19.
One change that talents need to cope up with is the talent fee as production expenses also raised. Kim and Xian’s series is one of those who will resume taping after the lockdown.
Based on the article from Pilipino Star Ngayon, they will start taping again next week. However, before this, the cast members and the production team had their Zoom meeting which brought excitement to them as it means “work”.
However, it was said that the supporting cast members were told that they will be no longer part of the series. Reportedly, those who were eliminated cried after the Zoom meeting as they are the ones who badly need the source of income.
On the other hand, based on the article, it is justifiable that ABS-CBN reduced the talent fee rate because aside from the pandemic, the network is not airing on free TV as of the moment.
Meanwhile, GMA continues its operation and just replaying the past shows. However, the Kapuso network gave the salary of the employees during the lockdown, based on the article.
The pandemic indeed affected the entertainment industry and losing the jobs is one of its effects.
