‘Sellblock’ Wraps Up Filming, Ready For MIPTV With Blue Fox

The forthcoming Filipino crime drama series, Sellblock, has concluded principal photography and is set to debut at MIPTV. Four exclusive first-look images have been released.

Sellblock, slated for three seasons, delves into the operations of one of Asia’s largest drug empires within a maximum-security prison in the Philippines. LA’s Blue Fox Entertainment is backing the show and will unveil it at the final MIPTV event in Cannes, France, next week.

Produced by Manila-based BlackOps Studios Asia, led by Pedring Lopez, known for Netflix’s Maria, Darkroom, and Geisha of Death, the series is directed by Lopez across all eight episodes of the first season.

Blue Fox will manage sales, including within the Philippines, and is set to screen the pilot episode for potential buyers at MIPTV, advancing towards TV distribution. While Filipino producer ABS-CBN was initially associated with the project, it is reported to have withdrawn its involvement.

Sellblock features Filipino actor Jericho Rosales, alongside Empoy Marquez, Ronnie Lazaro, Mon Confiado, Sylvia Sanchez, Ria Atayde, and Jaclyn Jose.

Rosales expressed, “Sellblock is more than just a series. It’s an immersive experience that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.”

Co-showrunner Rex Lopez stated, “We are thrilled to have reached this milestone in Sellblock‘s journey. Director Pedring Lopez’s unwavering commitment to quality has ensured that Sellblock stands out as one of the most ambitious projects from the Philippines.”

Scott M. Rosenfelt, a Los Angeles-based producer involved in the production, commented, “Sellblock is a testament to the power of collaboration and creativity. I am honored to be part of bringing this gripping series to audiences worldwide.”

Last week, it was announced that MIPTV would hold its final event after 61 years in Cannes. A new MIP-branded event is set to launch in the UK next year, alongside the London TV screenings.
