ONLINE ROMANTIC SERIES: “Vince & Kath & James” is derived from the hit online romantic series titled “Vince & Kath.”
The original online series presented its plot innovatively in the form of screenshots of text messages between its main characters making it viral and extremely popular.
Star Cinema recently acquired rights to this very popular series and developed it into a mini-franchise.
In the original social-serye, the plot revolves around the courtship of Vince (Joshua Garcia) and Kath (Julia Barreto) as seen through their exchange of text messages. The story basically begins with Vince as a secret admirer who eventually reveals himself to Kath. The addition of James (Ronnie Alonte) in its film adaptation gives it an exciting twist.
