In November 2019, FilmPhilippines engaged with the international production ALMOST PARADISE, which was filmed entirely in Lapulapu City, Cebu. Electric Entertainment Inc., led by renowned Fil-Am Hollywood writer and producer Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Godzilla, Stargate, etc.) produced the television series, with the line production partnership of ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation.American actor Christian Kane (The Librarians, Leverage, Angel) stars in ALMOST PARADISE as Alex Walker, a former US DEA agent who was forced into early retirement. Once the DEA’s most resourceful undercover operative, the combination of his partner’s betrayal and a life-threatening battle with hypertension has sent him as far from the madness as he can go – a small tropical island in the Philippines. He now runs a gift shop in the island’s luxury resort hotel, gets his disability payments at the US Naval Base, and generally manages his transition from Jason Bourne to a simple retail guy. BUT, the island resort attracts rich, powerful, and sometimes criminal elite from around the world who are often on a collision course with Alex. Despite his best efforts to begin a tranquil new life, he is pulled back into a world of dangerous people and deadly situations, either through his friends in the local police or running into people from his old life. The problem is he likes it.ALMOST PARADISE aired on WGN Network in the United States.
