SINGAPORE—27 July, 2023—Prime Video announced today that Amazon Original comedy series Comedy Island Philippines will be available on Prime Video in the Philippines and more than 240 countries and territories worldwide starting August 31. A hybrid between scripted and unscripted, the six part series is unique and unpredictable and has been produced by Amazon Studio in collaboration with BASE Entertainment Asia.
Comedy Island Philippines features seven comedians, actors, and social media celebrities—Carlo Aquino, Rufa Mae Quinto, Andrea Brillantes, Jerald Napoles, Cai Cortez, Awra Briguela, Justine Luzares, and Drew Arellano—who embark on a hilarious adventure when they are washed upon the shore of the mysterious Tawa-Tawa Island, which resurfaces after 100 years to commence the fictional “Centennial Games.” They soon find themselves unwitting competitors in these games, and must improvise to survive and escape the island. Pitted against each other in unscripted improvisational scenarios, the celebrities pull out all stops to bring laughter and entertainment to the island’s citizens, in order to win the most votes and a chance to go back home.
“Comedy Island Philippines sets the tone and standard of the authentic Filipino stories and genres we want to share with our audiences at home and abroad, and our commitment to the local TV and film industry,” said Quark Henares, head of Originals, Philippines at Prime Video. “Comedy Island is an ambitious format, a hybrid between reality, comedy, and adventure, shot on an island with massive sets, which features both the best comedic talent from the two major networks in the Philippines, and the new emerging voices including the up-and-coming social media superstars. We can’t wait to entertain our Pinoy audiences with this show.”
The series is produced by Amazon Studios in collaboration with BASE Entertainment Asia, and will be available on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories worldwide. The six-part series will launch with three episodes streaming back-to-back each week over a two-week period, from August 31-September 7.
