YASSI PRESSMAN Takes A Break From Alyana Dalisay For New iWant Series

Fans of FPJ's Ang Probinsyano will get to see a different Yassi Pressman as she stars in the new iWant series The Tapes!
The upcoming six-part mystery-thriller directed by Bradley Liew, who's also behind the Tokyo Interntional Film Festival entry Motel Acacia, is set in the 1990s and follows two cops Alice (Yassi) and Sonnyboy (Sam Milby) as they unravel stories behind the mysterious tapes sent to them.
According to Yassi, her role in The Tapes is a lot different from her character in the long-running primetime series, Alyana Dalisay. "Iisa na kami ni Alyana. Si Alice kailangan ko talagang pag-isipan," she said during the press conference.
She also added in a separate interview with VJ Ai that "It's fun for me to play 'cause I'm usually the one being saved so ngayon siya (Alice) yung naghahanap ng mga sagot."
But Alyana and Alice have something in common: they're both mothers. "Being in that role for such a long time, mas nadalian ako to jump into it for this."
The Tapes is set to premiere on iWant this March 18.
