‘On the Job’ bags nomination at 2022 International Emmys

Critically acclaimed series On the Job, co-produced by Reality MM Studios, Globe Studios (now known as ANIMA Studios), and HBO Asia, has been nominated for Best TV Movie/Mini Series at the 2022 International Emmy Awards.

On the Job: The Series, adapted from the 2013 full-length film of the same name and its sequel On the Job: The Missing 8, is in the running against Help (United Kingdom), Il Est Elle (France), and La Historia Íntima De La Escritora Isabel Allende (Chile).

“We are very proud of this nomination for ‘On the Job,’ which is a testament to world-class Filipino talent. To be shortlisted among four nominees is in itself a huge honor. Through ANIMA, we hope to bring more films and other content to the global stage,” said KROMA CEO Ian Monsod.

“Honestly, I wasn’t expecting this. It is surprising and impressive at the same time to be recognized among everything that was produced in the past year,” said director Erik Matti.

On the Job reflects real-life social ills including corruption and media censorship. Inspired by true events, it tells the story of prisoners hired as contract killers for government officials, and the journey of media man Narciso “Sisoy” Salas, who is forced to start an investigation following the disappearance of his colleagues.

It stars Joel Torre, John Arcilla, Piolo Pascual, Dennis Trillo, Gerald Anderson, Joey Marquez, Dante Rivero, Christopher de Leon, and Lotlot de Leon.

On the Job: The Missing 8 premiered at the Venice International Film Festival, where it won the Volpi Cup Best Actor for Arcilla.
