“Set in a Manila where the mythical creatures of Philippine folklore live in hiding among humans, Alexandra Trese finds herself going head to head with a criminal underworld comprised of malevolent supernatural beings,” said Netflix.
Filipino band UDD, formerly known as Up Dharma Down, composed the official soundtrack for Trese, titled “Paagi,” with lyrics by Armi Millare and Paul Yap.
Trese is directed by Jay Oliva, who was also behind the “Justice League Dark” and “The Legend of Korra.” Oliva is also one of the executive producers.
Netflix said there will be six episodes and they will be released all at once. (LMY/With PR)
