Following five episodes full of thrills, drama, and tension, the final episode of Erik Matti’s crime thriller On The Job premieres globally and exclusively on HBO GO today.
In the concluding episode of the series, Roman (Dennis Trillo) and Sisoy (John Arcilla, winner—Best Actor, 78th Venice Film Festival) work together in trying toget to the root of the killings. Amidst suspicions from his employers that he is ratting them out, Roman makes the decision to fight for his own freedom. In order to expose political crimes, Sisoy executes a daring plan, endangering his own family in the process.
Bearing a distinct mix of grit and intrigue, the HBO Asia Original series On The Job starts with the 2013 film of the same name which is divided into the first two episodes of the series but with a difference—the episodes have been remastered and it includes scenes that were deleted from the original film.
The next four episodes of the series expands on Erik Matti’s uncompromising vision that first wowed audiences back in 2013 and is only available exclusively on HBO GO. When a group of journalists suddenly go missing in the town of La Paz under highly suspicious circumstances, a group of journalists investigate the truth behind the disappearances, uncovering a tangled web of crime and corruption with connections to politics.
Unflinching in its message that rings true even today, the series touches on real-world issues of press freedom, fake news, and how exposing the misdeeds about power in positions of power can sometimes cost your life.
